Stacy Sims has spent the last two decades researching in female physiology to optimise women's training nutrition, recovery and hydration needs. Dr. Stacy Sims is the author of ROAR: How to match your food and fitness in female physiology for optimum performance, great health and a strong lean body for life. It is a must-read book, not only for female athletes but also any males in their corner, health professionals, fitness professionals or anyone that values helping others perform at their own physical best. I have devoured the pages of Roar and it largely serves as a platform for our discussion and deep dive into all things female physiology and endurance training.
Dr Stacy Sims has contributed to the exercise physiology and sports nutrition fields for more than two decades not only as a Scientist but also an athlete. Stacy served as an Exercise Physiologist and Nutrition Scientist at Stanford University from 2007 to 2012 specialising in sex differences of environmental and nutritional considerations for recovery and performance. Stacy has also been an elite athlete herself, along with extensive experience working with athletes from all levels; beginners right through to Olympians and Tour de France cyclists.
In 2012, Stacy Sims left her full-time academic position at Stanford University to start her own consultancy practice and to further the dissemination of science into the real world applications for athletes, coaches, educators and colleagues.
During this Expert edition we will explore female athlete physiology across the lifespan. We discuss menopause, pregnancy, menstruation 101, the old contraceptive pill, exercise recovery, fuelling for female athletes, all around the different phases of the menstruation cycle and Dr Stacy Sims answers some listener questions.
