In this episode of the Female Athlete Nutrition podcast, I talk with registered sports dietitian Emily Barnhart. Emily specializes in nutrition for injured athletes, and she speaks about her work with athletes through different phases of injury recovery. We discuss specific nutrition and body image concerns for injured athletes and bust myths about body composition and metabolism changes during injury. We remind listeners why it is important to fuel adequately during injury recovery, even though you may be exercising less, because your body requires extra nutrients to heal, maintain muscle, and recover as quickly as possible. We present listeners with specific supplements for injury prevention and recovery, including Omega 3 for concussions, vitamin D and calcium for bone injuries. Emily shares her experiences working with athletes through common injuries like ACL tears, stress fractures, and concussions, diving into some of their concerns like weight gain and muscle loss. She highlights how common underfuelling is for injured athletes and how this negatively impacts their recovery. We give advice to listeners for managing body image concerns and the psychological side to injuries.

We have an interesting conversation about the differences between male and female athletes in terms of disordered eating, body image concerns, and injury mindsets. While society has made progress on normalizing nutrition and body image struggles in females, these are still taboo topics in male populations. Emily and I emphasize the importance of having a diverse support team, including women in male sports, for optimal performance and health.
