In today’s episode, we’ll be discussing a topic that is becoming increasingly important for athletes of all levels: continuous glucose monitoring.

For years, endurance athletes have relied on carbohydrates as a primary source of fuel during long runs, races, and training sessions. But what if you could track your glucose levels in real-time to optimize your performance and avoid hitting the dreaded “wall”? That’s where continuous glucose monitoring comes in.

By wearing a small device that measures glucose levels in interstitial fluid, endurance athletes can gain valuable insights into their body’s response to different types of fuel, exercise intensity, and even stress levels. This information can help you make more informed decisions about your nutrition, training, and recovery, leading to better performance and fewer setbacks.

In this episode, we’ll hear from Kara Collier, co-founder and VP of Health and Chief Dietician at Nutrisense, in the field of continuous glucose monitoring and endurance sports, who will share her insights and experiences with this exciting technology. We’ll discuss how to interpret glucose data, how to adjust your nutrition and training based on your readings, and how continuous glucose monitoring can help you reach your endurance goals.
