#35 The Female Cycle and Low Energy Availability in Athletes with Renee McGregor

Feb 27, 2020, 04:00 PM

In this episode I am joined by Sports Dietitian Renee McGregor. Renee has a wealth of experience in a clinical environment and I was excited to be able to ask her questions such as:

  • What is low energy availability?

  • What are some negative effects of low energy availability for female athletes? 

  • Why is it do you think that female athletes underestimate their energy availability so much?

  • What effects does a high fat diet have on our bodies?

  • How can we train and eat around our cycle?

  • Why do we experience PMS?

  • How does the pill effect our cycles? 

  • Will there be more research on female athletes?
