As many of you know, in the past I’ve taken a critical stance on dietary collagen protein and recommended against it as a supplement. Science evolves, however, and given the new research that has come out since I first took my stance, I thought it an appropriate time to revisit the topic and potentially reevaluate […]

I wrote an article about the “ideal” macronutrient ratios for different types of climbing a long time ago—almost four years now! It’s still a good basic overview, but I think it’s time to revisit the topic and provide a little more context. Moreover, I think it might be worth writing an article explaining some of […]

Tom and I finished recording an episode on weight loss recently. For many, weight loss is a sensitive topic, and while we try to approach the topic from a scientific “these are the facts” point of view, by necessity we also wade into more tangled areas of motivations, body image, and dietary control. We finished […]

In Episode 11 of ClimbSci, Tom and I discuss setup for a weight loss diet, practical strategies, and maintaining performance to the greatest extent possible.

In a perfect world, we would be able to “do it all”. We don’t live in a perfect world, though, and so we must instead prioritize. In Episode 10 of ClimbSci, Tom and I discuss how best to prioritize nutritional choices for climbing performance—that is, what choices will make the biggest impact (first priority), what […]

Tom and I are preparing to do an episode of ClimbSci on weight loss, which got me thinking about diets and dieting in general. This article is a reflection on some of those thoughts. As a nutritionist, I seek out articles both scientific and mainstream to see how our understanding is changing. With science, our […]

I recently received a question about the potential for humans to convert fat into carbohydrates and thought it was interesting enough to put here on the site, particularly since I’ve been talking about ketosis so much recently (both on ClimbSci with Tom and then in a subsequent article). At any rate, it gives me another opportunity […]

Tom and I just finished recording our latest episode of ClimbSci (which you can listen to already on SoundCloud or your favorite podcast app!), and something I kept saying throughout the episode is “I wish I could draw this out for you”. Well, I didn’t have the capability in the episode, but I can provide […]
