In this episode

Natalie and Angie chat through common diets, like keto, intermittent fasting and macro counting. We also discuss sports nutrition myths, like:

  • Lower body fat always equals an improvement in performance.
  • Your body can only absorb 20-30 grams of protein per meal.
  • Endurance athletes have lower protein needs than strength athletes.
  • Coconut water is more hydrating than a sports drink.
  • If you’re craving a certain food, your body needs those nutrients.
