Episode 026 Nutrition with Stephanie Miezin

Stephanie Miezin is a registered dietitian working for the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). Her job there is to make sure the dining hall at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO is meeting the nutrition needs of the athletes who live and/or train there.

We discuss the following:

  • Her path from culinary school to registered dietitian

  • The difference between being a RD and a nutritionist

  • What one can expect in working with a RD

  • The “Big Items” to take care of in your own nutrition

  • Nutrient timing

  • Protein!

  • Keto (could not help but talk about that, right?)

  • Evaluating claims made by diet promoters or supplement companies

Stephanie has a great “food first” philosophy and encourages folks to learn how to cook so it gives you more control over your nutrition, and it is just fun! (Note: I like to cook, but I am not sure I have as much fun as Stephanie does in cooking)!

Stephanie can be found on Instagram at Cookeatcompete and she has a website, cookeatcompete.com.
