Megan Kuikman, registered dietitian and sports nutrition researcher is currently completing her PhD at the Australian Catholic University. Megan researches the area of relative energy deficiency in sport and in todays episode we discuss disordered eating in sport. Disordered eating in simple terms is an eating behaviour that is not optimised, it may range from what is commonly perceived as normal dieting to reflect in some of the same behaviour as those with eating disorders.  An individual with disordered eating may regularly engage in behaviours such as skipping meals, compulsive eating, compulsive exercise, and or restrictive eating, but without meeting all required criteria for a diagnosed eating disorder. There can be health and performance consequences that accompany disordered eating. It's been estimated that the prevalence of disordered eating and or eating disorders in athletes ranges from 0 to 19% in males, and 6% to 45% in females. Recently, the Australian Institute of Sport and the National Eating Disorders Collaboration collaborated to provide a set of guidelines for athletes coaches, support staff, clinicians and sporting organisations as a call to action to all involved in sport to be aware of poor self image and poor body image among athletes and potential disordered eating behaviours.

In this episode we look into some of the hottest new technology in the endurance market. The VO2 Master Analyser is the world's first wearable, easy to use metabolic analyser. We speak with founder Dr Andrew Sellars, Medical Doctor and self proclaimed passionate physiologist,  and co-founder and advisor Computer Scientist Peter O'Brien.

Many will have seen this device on the faces of Current World 70.3 triathlon champion Gustav Iden and his Norwegian counterpart Kristian Blummenfelt, current Olympic World Triathlon Series and World Ironman Champion who is regularly seen with the VO2 Master Analyser on his face during both indoor and outdoor training sessions.

Peter O'Brien and Dr Andrew Sellars share around the development of this technology and the reason why they felt it was necessary to develop the world's first wearable and portable metabolic analyser. They outline why it is important for athletes to be able to measure their VO2 Max and their VO2 along with respiratory dynamics in order to make wise training decisions.
