In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I am again speaking with Sports Nutritionist and Owner of On Your Mark Nutrition, Katie Mark for Part 2 of our conversation.
If you missed Part 1, stop right now and download episode #014. It was an amazing conversation with Katie discussing everything from the gut microbiome; and how preventative nutrition goes beyond “Fueling”. We then discussed hydration and sport drinks; and whether athletes really "need" them. Lastly, in Part 1, Katie shares information about exercise-associated muscle cramps. It was an incredible episode and you cannot miss it!

Katie's written works are nutrition-centered, evidence-based and intended for those who are sport performance or fitness-driven. She has a strong understanding of investigating nutrition science research and applying the science in the real world.
Her nutritional philosophy for optimal performance focuses on helping athletes achieve being fit and healthy by using nutritional strategies that target long-term training adaptations and long-term health.
