On tonight's Philosophy in Action Radio, I'll interview paleo expert and athlete Nell Stephenson about "Paleo for the Endurance Athlete." This episode of internet radio airs at 6 pm PT / 7 MT / 8 CT / 9 ET tonight (Wednesday, 27 February 2013) in our live studio. If you miss that live broadcast, you can always listen to the podcast later.
What kind of training and nutrition is required for endurance competition? What's wrong with the standard methods of training and nutrition for athletes? Can the paleo diet work for endurance atheletes?
Nell Stephenson is the author of Paleoista: Gain Energy, Get Lean, and Feel Fabulous with the Diet You Were Born to Eat and the co-author of The Paleo Diet Cookbook. She studied Exercise Science at USC, followed by culinary school. She now owns and operates her paleo nutritional counseling business online with clients around the globe. Nell discovered paleo after contracting a parasite during an Ironman race in 2004.
