The Question:

Do you work with schools because the nutrition schedule you recommend does not fit well with a standard school schedule?

The Answer:

All right! Welcome back to the Stay Fueled Podcast! My name is Dr. Joshua Eldridge, founder of Stay Fueled, and I’m excited you’re here. This is going to be a great question because I get this about once every time I go and give my presentation on nutrition to young athletes. So here it is, and this one’s from Teresa, and she says, “My daughter wants to be a vegetarian. Is this dangerous for her as an athlete?”

Yeah, that’s a great question, right? A lot of times, our athletes want to have a different mindset in their life and they want to change the way they do things. That’s perfectly fine. That’s us as humans wanting to do different things and explore.
