Sports Nutrition and Athletic Performance | Interview with Becca McConville, RD, CSSD

In this episode, I interview Becca McConville, a Registered Dietician, Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, and Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietician who has a health first, performance second approach to helping athletes optimize their performance.

Becca shares her experience with athletes in regard to Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S) along with her own personal experience and why it's important to adjust calorie intake in accordance with energy expenditure to avoid fatigue, illness, and stress fractures.

A few of the topics discussed:

  • Why you can't always see fitness
  • Why having a little higher BMI isn't a bad thing
  • Why being driven can be destructive
  • Wearable technology for the everyday athlete (you can't take the human out of the athlete)
  • Nutrient testing and recommendations

Find Becca's book, Finding Your Sweet Spot: How to Avoid RED-S (Relative Energy Deficit in Sport) by Optimizing Your Energy Balance on Amazon or at
