EB37: Ultra Training and Racing with the Whole30 Nutrition Program – Ask Meredith


Welcome to our Ask Meredith feature on the Endurance Buzz Podcast where Texas-based nutritionist and ultra athlete, Meredith Terranova shares her thoughts on questions you submit on the Ask Meredith page.

Let’s get to it!

A member of the EB tribe submitted the following question:

“What are your thoughts on ultrarunners following the Whole30® plan? Is it best to keep the plan to 30 days and then add back in the foods or could it work to continue the plan even if the foods don’t cause issues? How about on race day?”

Enjoy as Meredith and I chat about the Whole30® program with considerations for ultra training and racing.

Insights and musings include:

  • before we get to our Whole30® chat, Meredith shares a couple wonderful memories from her Ultraman experience
  • basics of the Whole30® program
  • important food choices awareness tip
  • considerations and adaptations for race day
