Mary Cain & RED-S: When Weight Loss Affects Performance

Join Prof. Ross Tucker and host Mike Finch - with guests exercise physiologist and scientist Dr Trent Stellingwerff and former elite runner Hilary Stellingwerff - as we look into the causes, culture and psychology of Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S) and the controversy surrounding Mary Cain and the Nike Oregon Project. We look into the effects of RED-S on both female and male athletes and why long-term health is always more important than short term gains.
