The BibRave Podcast Ep. 96: Nutrition & Mental Fitness – a conversation with Matt Fitzgerald

Listen to this Episode!

For Episode 96 of The BibRave Podcast, we’re so excited to bring you one of our favorite authors and thought leaders in running, Matt Fitzgerald! And a special thanks to our awesome sponsors at Athlinks – the largest results database for competitive endurance athletes in the world!

Matt is a prolific author and has written some of the best running and nutrition-related books out there. His latest is The Endurance Diet, which he references throughout the episode and which clearly builds on his previous hits Racing Weight, Diet Cults, and The New Rules of Marathon and Half-Marathon Nutrition. They also talk about one of Tim’s favorites, which was prescribed by his coach (Sensei Chris) before the Tokyo Marathon, How Bad Do You Want It?

Tim, Julia, and Matt discuss everything from breakfast regimens and how elite runners eat (spoiler – it’s pretty much everything) to fad diets, and the difference between mental fitness and mental toughness. Matt is an extremely intelligent, articulate, and well-informed guy, so this episode covers a lot. Hope you enjoy!
