Episode 105 – Interview with Melissa Boufounos – Nutrition for Athletes (and all of us), Creating a Food Foundation and More

What an episode. This week I got to talk all things nutrition for athletes (and really all of us) with Melissa Boufounos. She is a passionate obstacle course racer herself and has created a business helping other races fuel effectively with real food and create faster results on the course.

But as I have said with all of my interviews with ninjas and athletes – keep listening – even if you never want to race or do any of the crazy things we do. This episode in particular is a big one to gain nutrition knowledge that is important for all of us.

Melissa and I talk about:

  • Carbs (myth busting)
  • Creating a solid foundation
  • Hydration
  • Protein Needs/Sources
  • So Much More
