Thanks Bevan Mckinnon, our long-time elite athlete and coaching partner for having me on your weekly podcast/radio show to discuss the new work in our book “What the Fat? Sport Performance.”
Here’s his blurb….listen here
Prof Grant Schofield is a respected PhD public health academic of 20 years. Dubbed ‘The Fat Professor’ he is at the forefront of challenging the widespread fat phobia that has pushed us to eat a diet full of processed, carb-laden food. In his latest book ‘What The Fat? Sports Performance: Leaner, Fitter, Faster on Low-Carb Healthy Fat’, Prof Grant focuses on the science and practice of low carb eating for peak athletic performance. “Retraining your body and brain and turning on your fat burning almost seems like an unfair advantage when it’s applied to the sporting environment. For decades the brightest minds in the athletic performance nutrition field have had carbs pegged as the ultimate good guy – forget everything you were taught by your old-school sports performance nutritionist and learn how to become the ultimate fat burning athletic machine”.
