Part II: Good Nutrition for Great Results

Presented by Rachele Pojednic, PhD, EDM - Assistant Professor of Nutrition at Simmons College and a former research fellow at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, Harvard Medical School.

When: Thursday, February 15th at 7:30pm

General nutrition can seem confusing. Throw in the added necessity of fueling for endurance sport and simple confusion can quickly snowball into bad habits that have the potential to undermine months of dedicated training. With a new fad diet popping up every year, nutrition labels a mile long, and “expert opinions” available from every corner of the internet, it seems impossible to get straight answers to even basic questions. What, and how much, should you eat before, during, and after workouts? What ratios of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are ideal? Should you take a daily multivitamin or other supplements? If I ride/run X miles, can I eat whatever I want? What does nutrient timing or nutritional periodization mean? What is a kilojoule?

In the second round of Wheelworks’ 2018 Science of Cycling Winter Seminar Series, we have the honor of hosting Rachele Pojednic, PhD, EDM. In her hour long presentation, Dr. Pojednic will help us answer those questions while breaking down the more challenging concepts into easy to swallow pieces whose digestion will help us break through the confusion that often makes purposeful nutrition planning for endurance sport seem so daunting.
