Fueling, RED-S & Weight Management for Athletes with Lindsey Cortes RD

by | Jun 11, 2024 | Nutrition, Podcast

In this episode of the Consummate Athlete Podcast, Molly Hurford chats with sports dietitian Lindsey Cortes. We explore the staggering statistic that up to 45% of female athletes engage in some form of disordered eating. We discuss the reasons behind this, how it happens, and the signs and symptoms of Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S). Lindsay shares insights on the biggest dietary pitfalls athletes face, not just during exercise but throughout the day. We also learn that RED-S can also affect athletes who aren’t underweight, offering a broader perspective on this condition.
