Winning Recipes - Stacy Sims

  1. 1. From Athlete and Scientist to Industry:What’s wrong with the current paradigm in Sports NutritionStacy T Sims, PhD
  2. 2. BRIEF STORY Elite athlete struggling with fluid balance and nutrition on Worlds Course (early 2000s) PhD focus on fluid balance, sex differences, and separation of fuel from hydration (2002) Teammates in the field- separation of fluid from food: tailored macronutrient-carbohydrate intake from real food WITH fluid that works with physiology to hydrate (2002 onwards) Pro and Olympic athlete consults to help with GI issues, cramping, power decline-> separation of fluid from fueling (2005 onwards) Concurrent lab research with field implementation to hone in specificity
  3. 3. EVOLUTION FROM CONSULTANT TO INDUSTRY 2009: specific problem for TdFrance team  GI distress, dehydration, lack of recovery Created solution of hydration vs fueling; tailored recovery (Acute and nightime) Private client offered to help bring the solution to the masses 2012 (May) Launched OSMO: Hydration in the bottle, Food in the Pocket. You’re not Bonking, You’re Dehydrated!  Too much focus on calorie and exogenous carbohydrate, not enough on keeping blood volume up for essential circulation
  4. 4. GOING FROM ONE TO THE MASSES The “haters” are a louder voice Palatability Pushing the paradigm shift Real science- marketing science is often louder and harder to “push back” WADA FDA
  5. 5. NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS OR REAL FOOD We are not as smart as Nature.Supplementation should not be the answer, REAL FOOD is betterPhysiology is inherently the same; different between men and women- compounded by menstrual cycle hormones, and alterations in energy metabolism during exercise.
  6. 6. PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT Ergogenic Aids: line between natural and illegal  Top 2% is often misappropriated nutritional strategies  Working with physiology and applied sciences for longer term performance gains and health  Specificity of training is best  Natural manipulation takes longer, but very effective  Globalization of “immediate”
