ADS 0026: The Fat Professor, Grant Schofield – Nutrition for Youth Athletes
My guest on the show today believes that children thrive on a diet based in evolutionary biology and not that of the modern-day food supply. His name is Grant Schofield and he’s a Professor of Public Health at AUT University, as well as Director of the Human Potential Centre at AUT Millennium. He’s also the co-author of ‘What the Fat’, a book about low-carb, healthy-fat eating.
Grant is leading the wave of change in how we think about our health, including how we exercise, how we sleep, how we (and our kids) play, and how we connect.
Today on the show we dig into low-carb, healthy-fat nutrition, why Grant came to study it, and if it’s useful for the youth athlete. Grant talks about his ‘real food, for real people, based on real evidence’ guidelines, and gives some great nutritional advice for parents of youth athletes.
