Metabolic health for the endurance athlete - with Dr Philip Prins

This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Dr Philip Prins about the effect of low-carbohydrate diets versus higher-carbohydrate diets on athletic performance, why endurance athletes still need to care about their metabolic health, why there might be a bias against low-carb diets in academic research, and the implications of his research on us middle aged endurance athletes.

Dr. Philip Prins is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science. Dr. Prince earned a B.S. in Kinesiology as well as an M.S. in Exercise Science from Georgia Southern University, and a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Pittsburgh. His research focuses on, among other things, the practical impact of lifestyle on metabolism and how metabolism impacts health, disease and performance outcomes. Among his many areas of expertise are nutritional ketosis, metabolic responses to exercise, and sports nutrition.
