Hello cycling members!
To date, there is little research in the nutritional practices of women in cycling, with most of the research being done on male cyclists. Why is this? Instantly, a flood of thoughts come to my mind. But in my best attempt to keep this posting as unbiased as possible, I will refrain from sharing my opinion on unjust treatment of women in sports. Rather, I hope to remedy this situation and contribute to a small but growing number of interesting studies done with looking at different nutritional practices between men and women, blended with current nutrition interest for endurance athletes of all levels.
That said, I dedicate this month’s Nutrition blog to giving you a chance to voice your opinion on your nutritional practices. I want to learn from you, and further the research being done to meet endurance athlete’s needs, and acknowledge the different approaches taken by men and women, and some possible reasons behind it. With these results, I will write an article describing these differences! Additionally, you will receive a specialized e-book on 7 different nutrient-dense grains, endurance specific benefits and use, and a scrumptious recipe to enjoy.
I would really appreciate you taking 10 minutes of your time to contribute. Click HERE to take the WCA Nutrition Survey.
I’ll be back next month with the usual Nutrition interest blog, including great recipes…
Best of Health,
Sarah Weber, RD.
