Tailoring nutrition requirements to gender

Recently on the show, we spoke about the lack of women being included in sport and exercise research.

Well, the same can be said when it comes to nutrition for women during training.

Up until recently women were considered “small men,” and the nutrition advice given to them failed to take into account the physiological differences between men and women.

Stacy T Sims is a Senior Research Fellow University of Waikato in New Zealand. She spoke to us about what women need to do to get the most out of their training.
