Running with a Different Lens with Lydia O'Donnell
Shifting from dancer to runner in her teenage years, Lydia is now an elite runner that is passionate about sharing her story and insights - to allow for more of us to see running with a different lens. Her honesty and vulnerability within this discussion is breathtaking. She takes us through her personal challenges in navigating both body image and pressure for leanness - and what this led to in experiencing Relative Energy Deficiency a few years ago. Something you can find out more about here. We speak a lot about mental health in this episode, so if anything spoken about resonates, please reach out to the Butterfly Foundation (for Eating Disorder support) or Beyond Blue (for anxiety, depression or suicide support).

Sports Supplements - Group A (The Ones That Actually May Work)
Recently the Australian Institute of Sport released a revamped version of their world renowned Supplement Framework. Over the coming episodes, we put a spotlight on each group - starting with Group A. This group are the supplements on the podium so to speak. The ones with a strong level of evidence that they may help with your sports performance. Enjoy this episode as we go through each one, how it works and when you may want to consider using them. As always, these supps are the sprinkles on the icing (timing and periodisation) of the cake (daily food choice) when it comes to performance nutrition, but used well can make that recipe pop!

Chatting life, food & mental health with Marika Day
One thing that draws me to Marika is her authenticity and her willingness to embrace vulnerability. She is overflowing with empathy and her honesty mixed with humour has made her an absolute star when it comes to both career and social media. We both made the pact not to let this chat become one of nutrition - and I think we succeeded haha! It is a gorgeous story of her life, her experiences and her learnings. If you don't already follow along, head to https://www.instagram.com/marikaday now. Like go. Now. So much fun! & as always, we are here if you need to reach out, would love to chat all things food or have any questions!

Body Dysmorphia & Disordered Eating in the LGBTQIA+ Community with Chris Fonda
My only hope is that this is the first brave conversation of many. As Mardi Gras approached, we took a deep dive into the disproportionate rates of Disordered Eating and Body Dysmorphia in the LGBTQIA+ community. It was with this that Chris, one of our Compeat Dietitians, reached out wanting to chat more about this. As a gay male in a physique focused sport (diving, and previously gymnastics), Chris has lived through a lot when it comes to food and body weight pressures. However, it was the pressure and expectation felt within the gay community to 'look' a certain way for acceptance that shocked him most. This chat is raw and it is filled with vulnerability that you can sense throughout. For good reason, this topic never gets airtime and we feel it is the time to start the conversation. There is so much within this topic and we are just getting started!

Conversation Starter: Fat Club in Pro Sport - Yay or Nay?
Within pro sport internationally there is a practice that can be found in many teams and clubs - both genders and not specific to weight making sports. This podcast is all about bringing this practice into the light to allow for respectful and considerate discussions to consider it's place and if there is a better way to achieve the result that it is aiming for. Fat Clubs are present with it's members inaugurated with the goal of weight loss - often with the goal of reduced skinfolds (a body composition measurement). However, is this division within a squad or team something that helps or hinders the cause? What impacts to the individual athlete do these practices present and how may the impact their relationship with food or exercise? We discuss all these thoughts and ideas in this podcast and encourage all comments and feedback. We don't claim to have the answers, but would like to bring a voice to a different perspective and an opportunity to give a voice to the athlete experience.

The Hundred Jump Project with Steve Gregor
TW: Depression & Suicide. There isn't many things that leave the queen of waffle speechless, but this conversation was it. Steve is about to embark on an incredible attempt of one hundred skydives within 14-15hrs. However, we couldn't leave the conversation at that. Every person has a story, and we needed to know the background to Steve that has led to the 'why' of attempting such a massive task (and all for such a good cause). It is with that the discussion that the topic took a turn for the unexpected. Where our chats around his ongoing battle with Scheuermann's Disease also led us to discussions of his history with mental illness. How he went from mapping out every detail of his suicide to now being where he is today.

Expert Session with Dr Eric Rawson on all things Creatine & Concussion
We are still pinching ourselves that we had the opportunity to sit down with the leading voice in Creatine, Dr Eric Rawson from Messiah University. He isn't kidding when he says he has literally spent his life seeking optimal performance for humans - and it is this that lead him to dedicating much of his research to the supplement Creatine. Join us as we discuss all things Creatine, why we should be considering it's use, and the wide range of people that could be benefiting from it that you may not have expected (trust us, it is far from a supplement just for body builders!). It is also his research in Creatine that led him to learning more about the brain physiology and the potential of Creatine in a common occurrence in athletes - concussion. To help explain what on earth is happening in the brain at time of concussion, we have placed more detailed show notes and the image that he spoke through during the episode here: https://app.compeatnutrition.com/the-foods-to-consider-for-concussion As always, we would adore any time you could spare in sending through a review or shooting through a star rating - it means the WORLD to little old us in helping spread the word!

When goals don't pan out - experiencing 'failure' with Vlad Shatrov & Benn Couborough
How often do we set out to achieve something that pushes us beyond our limits - and even more so, how often do we put off doing something at the risk of 'failure'? For Benn & Vlad, their passion and obsession is in ultra running. So when goal races got pushed aside during 2020 and the impacts of Covid, they shifted their attendtion to personal events that both stretched beyond their known limits. Benn set out to complete the Great North Walk of 276km in the fastest known time; while Vlad entered the 240km Coast2Kosci not just to complete or win, but for the fastest known time. However, for both, things didn't go to plan. So what happens when our big goals don't end in success and celebration? What happens when we push beyond our limits and fall short? Here you get the opportunity to sit in on the stories that so often get untold, and we are so grateful to Benn and Vlad for being so brave in sharing their vulnerabilities in this episode. Enjoy!

Festive Food - Navigating nutrition within all the celebrations & emotions
It is the year 2020 and a time where not everyone is having a 'normal' Christmas. Creating this episode we were so mindful of all the different situations people are in right now - between isolations, lockdowns and social distancing - Covid has thrown us an interesting challenge when it comes to interaction. However, how do we navigate the festive season? How do we cope with the influx of food, stress, fun, drinks and emotion? How do we find a place with food where we hold permission to eat without finding yourself permanently parked at the snack table? Should I worry about weight gain? How do I manage my food without completely blowing out? We answer all this and so much more in this episode. However, as always, we encourage interaction and feel free to send through any questions or reach out for a free chat with one of our Performance Dietitians - https://www.compeatnutrition.com/free-review

Approaching Progress with Perspective with Dalton Franke
In almost a blind date scenario, we got the opportunity to catch up with Dalton in an episode that absolutely smashed my expectations. He was candid, honest and so open about his own experiences. It takes so much vulnerability and self reflection to admit mistakes and embrace learning with a willingness and unstoppable curiosity - this is exactly what Dalton has lived and achieved. Dalton speaks with an awareness of someone who gets it. Someone who has lived, has hurt, and has grown. He makes achieving progress feel tangible and individual to each person - something that we can wholeheartedly applaud and is seen too rarely in the wellness industry. Dalton has gone from telling people WHAT to do, to instead paying attention to the power of support focused upon behaviour change. You can find more information about Dalton on his website https://www.daltonfranke.com/ and over on his Instagram @daltonfranke_coaching.

Supporting your body through pregnancy, birth & beyond with Physiotherapist Rebecca Martin
This waffle is all about sharing stories to help you become empowered, confident, and curious. This one is a very special episode around female health with Beck Martin (@womenshealthphysiotherapy). Beck is a female health physio specialised in exercise prescription for pregnancy and after birth. We have been inundated with requests to find someone for our waffle that covers these topics. They are simply not spoken about enough and I wish we had covered even more in this podcast. Often what we learn about pregnancy is all about pregnancy and birth but we don’t cover off on what happens after. The impact on our health. The impact on our bodies. The impact on our mental health. Yes, complications like incontinence and prolapse are common, but they are not normal. These complications are not something that you should just accept and live with. This is an episode very close to my heart for reasons that you will understand when listening through. Whether you’re someone considering having a baby, currently pregnant, or with a young bub, I know you will love this podcast As always, we would love to know what you think!

So many of you reach out to us every day feeling overwhelmed and guilty with not knowing how to eat anymore.
