Nutrition plays a vital role in helping beginner runners enhance their endurance, recovery and running performance.

I admit that I am not a nutrition expert and nor am I perfect from my own nutritional standpoint. I try!

To help you understand how nailing your nutrition can make you a better runner, I invited Jennifer Sygo onto the podcast to chat.

Jennifer is a registered dietitian and sports nutritionist with Cleveland Clinic Canada.  She is the team dietitian for the Toronto Maple Leafs and also provides advice to the Toronto Raptors.

In 2014, Jennifer released her book, "Unmasking Superfoods:  the Truth and Hype about Acai, Quinoa, Chia, Blueberries, and More".

Some topics we chat about include:

  • Surprising nutrition habits of professional athletes.
  • How a nutritionist fuels two little boys a breakfast and their morning routine.
  • Time savings tips for families with busy schedules.
  • Tips for new runners looking to lose weight.
  • Nutritional timing – is it important?
  • Hot trends in nutrition and whether there is any merit to them.
  • Is it possible to run and rely only on fat for fuel?
  • Simple steps you can take today to eat better and help become a better runner.
  • And much more!
