Women are not small and men yet for decades research findings on nutrition and exercise on men have been applied to women with no regard for our unique physiology. Our hormones, metabolism and our genetics are different, and there are ways that we can eat, live and train to optimize these differences.
Today’s guest is Dr. Stacy Sims is an applied researcher, innovator, and entrepreneur in human performance. Her mission is to create a world of healthy women who understand their bodies and know how to work with their unique physiology at ever age.
Dr. Sims is the author of ROAR: How to Match Your Food and Fitness to Your Unique Female Physiology, and her new newest book, NEXT LEVEL, is a physiology-based guide to peak performance for active women approaching or experiencing menopause.
Today we’re talking about how women of all ages can adapt their nutrition, hydration, and training so you can work with, rather than against, your female physiology to be strong and healthy at every age.
While today’s episode is targeted towards women, I invite all men to keep listening. Whether you are a coach, father, brother, son, or just a friend, this is valuable information you should share with the women in your life.
About Dr. Sims
STACY T. SIMS, MSC, PHD, is a forward-thinking international exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist who aims to revolutionize exercise nutrition and performance for women.
She has directed research programs at Stanford, AUT University, and the University of Waikato, focusing on female athlete health and performance and pushing the dogma to improve research on all women.
With the unique opportunities, Silicon Valley has to offer, during her tenure at Stanford, she had the opportunity to translate earlier research into consumer products and a science-based layperson's book (ROAR) written to explain sex differences in training and nutrition across the lifespan. Both the consumer products and the book challenged the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition, and health. This paradigm shift is the focus of her famous "Women Are Not Small Men” TEDx talk.
Stacy currently holds a Senior Research Associate position with SPRINZ- AUT University, supervises PhD students, writes academic papers, and is on the advisory board of some cutting edge companies including Tonal Strength Institute, WILD.AI, and EXOS. She also has her own business (www.drstacysims.com) where she creates and delivers online learning material focused on women training with their physiology across the lifespan.
She currently resides at the beach in Mt. Maunganui, New Zealand with her husband and young daughter.
