Katie Schofield – Defining RED-S and Low Energy Availability
In this Episode
Studies have found that 79.5% of female athletes are at risk of Low Energy Availability. That’s why this week we talk to Katie Schofield to learn all about under fueling, LEA, and RED-S. Katie Schofield is a performance coach that helps folks better understand their physiology, nutrition, health, and athletic performance, and tailors this specifically toward those suffering from Low Energy Availability. Holding a Ph.D. that specializes in LEA and RED-S, Katie takes a multidisciplinary approach to everything she does.
Struggling with LEA and RED-S herself, Katie and Sara discuss the factors that influence female athletes to under fuel, and the significant outcomes of this. Katie outlines what exactly LEA is, how this leads to RED-S, and the number of athletes that find themselves in a state of LEA. Further, Katie shares her experience of returning from a state of LEA, and what it felt like to have her energy again.
