Can Women’s Health Get Better With Age? | Stacy Sims PhD

STACY T. SIMS, MSC, PhD, is a forward-thinking international exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist who aims to revolutionize exercise nutrition and performance for women. She has directed research programs at Stanford, AUT University, and the University of Waikato, focusing on female athlete health and performance and pushing the dogma to improve research on all women. During her tenure at Stanford, she had the opportunity to translate earlier research into consumer products and a science-based layperson's book (ROAR) written to explain sex differences in training and nutrition across the lifespan. Both the consumer products and the book challenged the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition, and health. This paradigm shift is the focus of her famous "Women Are Not Small Men” TEDx talk.

In this episode we discuss:
• Training methods for everyday women, not athletes.
• Should women be taking exogenous hormones?
• How to maintain fitness during menopause.
• Can your health get better with age?
