If you’re an athlete, particularly an endurance athlete, chances are you’ve experienced some kind of gastrointestinal distress or problems, shall we say, in the area of digestion before, during, or after exercise. It’s a very complicated topic, as both the causes and solutions are far from clear cut. But this week’s episode I sit down with registered dietitian and PhD researcher Patrick Wilson to hear about his new book, The Athlete’s Gut, and some of the latest research on the topic so that athletes can make better food choices to avoid problems in the gut. We cover a lot, including fueling strategies, training the gut, fiber, plant-based athlete considerations, and more.
