Every week I have clients ask me if they should take a particular supplement. It's a new, sparkly product with unmatched results, "clinically proven" and taken by all the pro's.
But often they're looking for the 1% performance gains without the solid foundations first. They take an expensive supplement, yet don't fuel training properly or under recover or eat crap on the weekends
Today on Coffee & Questions I talked about a specific supplement that seems to be prolific in the endurance space at the moment. Modex.
I’ve had a number of people ask me about it recently so I thought it would be useful to share with you in case you’ve got a mate raving about the benefits or you already take it.
I’m going to explain what it is, and walk you through the process I go through when looking into a new supplement/product with the critical eye of an Advanced Sports Dietitian. I don't simply google it, read it's website or a blog.

Today on Coffee & Questions I talked about race nutrition during the back end of an Ironman, in particular the run.
With Cairns IM only 8 weeks away, now is the perfect time to be perfecting your Ironman race nutrition plan.
Here are the key points I talked about today:
Success in an IM comes from minimal fatigue from the swim and bike
The types of foods suitable for running - eating on your feet
The importance of practising with on-course nutrition
Train your gut! This includes both nutrition AND hydration
Do Sweat Testing to understand your individual hydration needs
Explore any cramping issues
What Caffeine options are there on the run?
Don't try anything new on race day!
Should you eat before exercise? And if you do what should you eat?
Coffee & Questions is back!!
One of the biggest issues faced by the Dietitian Approved crew is fuelling for their training. Today I give you a few key pointers for fuelling before training. When it's a good idea to do training fasted versus when to fuel before training.
Sorry about the poor image quality - on the to-do list this weekend is to buy a new webcam!
If you need help with meeting your fuelling needs, invest in a Sports Dietitian to develop a customised plan for you!
