Health Makeover Week – Endurance Diets

HR Show

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – What an athlete eats, or does not eat, has an effect on his or her performance and overall health. Kari Tallent, a Registered Dietitian with Bon Secours, explained what a person who competes in endurance sports should take in before, during and after an event.

She considers an endurance sport as anything that lasts more than an hour, and knowing what to put in one’s body impacts it’s outcome. Consulting with a professional like Kari is important for athletes so they can avoid unnecessary pitfalls in the diet category that can be easily avoided.

Kari is also a runner who shares her own experiences with her clients.
