Episode27: Fueling Your Life with Beth Miller, Director of Sports Nutrition for Duke Athletics
“Proper nutrition program is vital for athletes of all ages and all levels, whether you are training to get a PR at your next road race, if you’re in high school looking to go on and play college sports or even if you are just simply a frequent user of your local gym.”
This week on The Produce Moms Podcast, Lori and Beth Miller, Director of Sports Nutrition for Duke Athletics, discuss the importance of fueling our body, and the role produce plays in the nutrition of Duke’s top athletes. Beth is a Registered Dietitian, and has been the Director of Sports Nutrition at Duke since 2017. Beth shares that nutrition is about finding the balance of foods to fuel your life. This is important for every individual, from the elite athlete to the soccer mom. Fresh produce plays a vital role in that balance!
“My mission as a sports dietitian is to teach our athletes not only how to fuel themselves for their sports here and now while they’re at Duke, but also to teach them skills to fuel themselves for the rest of their lives. And I think that that can go into play for every athlete of any kind and just any human being. Fuel your life. ”
Throughout the episode, we learn insightful information about Sports Nutrition, how Duke fuels their athletes, and the role of fresh produce. When used properly, nutrition can give athletes the edge they need to dominate training, performance, and recovery. If you have ever been curious to learn more about dietetics, and how this science operates hand-in-hand with our best athletes, you won’t want to miss this episode!
“You need to fill your tank up with high-quality fuel in order to receive any results that you’re looking for. Whether that be in your sport, or your workout routine, or just in general. Never run on empty, and never run on poor quality fuel.”
