Hello & welcome to the High Performance Living Podcast, this is episode 87, and today we are chatting all about Nutrition For Endurance Trainers.

You might be thinking that you’re not a endurance trainer, but here’s the thing, anyone participating in 30+ minutes of continuous activity is endurance training. Of course when this extends even longer, such as a marathon, this is considered ultra-endurance. Endurance fitness is therefore of huge importance to many people. 

So where Anna and I step in this week is to highlight why diet is a key factor for successful endurance performance, recovery and health. It’s a great show.

Before that I want to give a big shout out to the HPL community right now – it’s feeling strong – I love it. 

I really enjoyed getting your feedback on the show and all things HPL recently, and I’d love to know what you though of this weeks’ show too. Every week you’ll now find a brand new blog post on my website to accompany the podcast. It would be great to hear your feedback in the comments section of each show.

And of course, you can also check out the High Performance Living Programme there too. It’s for those who want to improve their nutrition, training and lifestyle, to look, feel and perform at their best. Again, that’s all found at

Let’s do this.

Welcome to the High Performance Living Podcast. This week Anna and I will be showing you how to boost your energy and metabolism, along with sharing some of the science as to how it works. 

We talk a lot about the body on the podcast, such as the digestive system, its role and how it works. What we must understand is that all of these components within the body exist to metabolise energy from the nutrients we eat.

Knowledge of the cellular machinery and metabolic pathways responsible for deriving energy from macronutrients once they reach the cells is important for us to understand. By knowing this information and how it all works together, we can really start individualise our diets.

We've seen a number of popular diets come and go in the nutrition industry, but none have quite caused such a fuss like clean eating and flexible dieting. When we quickly compare both these dieting protocols, it's clear they promote two very different eating habits and routines. So which one should you use? What's the pro's and con's to each of them? Anna Marsh and I answer these questions plus much more in this weeks episode. Get your pen and paper ready, and let the rants commence!
