Time to bust some myths about nutrition. Head coach Ryan Kohler and Coach Trevor Connor both have degrees in nutrition and decades of experience working with athletes on all manner of sports nutrition topics.

Together, they discuss some of the major misconceptions that regularly enter any conversation on what to eat when training and racing.

  • Do carbs make you fat?
  • Do you need fancy race food?
  • How do you know if you have a food allergy?

  • Can you “train” how your body hydrates?

We answer all these questions and many others as we explore some of the most common misconceptions in sports nutrition.
