Pacey Performance Podcast



In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Performance Nutritionist, James Morehen. It’s been a while since I had a nutritionist on the podcast and it was an absolute pleasure to get James on the podcast. This episode is titled, ‘nutrition for the S&C coach’ because there are still so many S&C coaches out there who are acting nutritionists. In smaller organisations, nutrition support often gets put onto the S&C coach or sports scientist so this episode dives into some key concepts that non-nutritionists need to know.

In this episode we discussed…

  • Who is James Morehen (background, education and current role[s])?
  • Working within academia
    • The realities of publishing
  • The link between S&C and nutrition
    • The basics for S&C’s covering both roles
    • Focusing on behaviour change
    • Assessing needs and monitoring progress
    • Recovery
    • Injury risk
  • Body composition
    • Pre-season vs in-season
      • Fuelling for such high loads in pre-season
    • Approaching those that need body composition changes
  • Demystifying recent trends
    • Veganism
    • Intermittent fasting
