Renee McGregor: Tackling eating disorders

Read more

In this episode of Full of Fire, I speak to leading sports and eating disorders dietician Renee McGregor and find out about her job, her own terrifying experience of anorexia and her work with young athletes to encourage healthy relationships with food and exercise.

Renee is a best-selling author and leading sports and eating disorder dietitian with over 15 years experience working with elite athletes, coaches and sport science teams alongside normal teenagers.

Renee has delivered nutrition support to athletes over the last two Olympic and Paralympic cycles, and regularly works with high performing and professional athletes that have developed a dysfunctional relationship with food and exercise.

She founded the #TRAINBRAVE campaign aiming to inspire more athletes to share their stories and raise awareness of the risks of eating disorders and RED-s (Relative Energy Deficiency syndrome - when people regularly exercise hard and don’t eat enough to refuel).

Renee talks about the reasons young people develop eating disorders and speaks about her own experiences with racism and low self-worth as a teenager that led to her own anorexia.

She highlights the damaging messages that are transmitted via social media by influencers and celebrities who have no education in nutrition. Renee herself aims to use social media to educate with truth and science (after studying for 3 degrees in Biochemistry, Dietetics and Sports Nutrition!), but admits to having a love/hate relationship with Instagram. 

Renee also talks about the signs you can notice in yourself and your friends of developing unhealthy relationships with food or exercise and gives advice about what to do if you have a friend you’re worried about.

This is an in-depth episode that is valuable listening for young people - and also for sports coaches, PE teachers and parents. Nutrition, sports nutrition, eating disorders and RED-s are such complex areas, but it’s really important to be aware of the issues.

Ep 217 - "Why All Women's Training is Wrong" - Renee McGregor on the impact of your menstrual cycle on running

Read more

“All women need to change their training plans.“

It’s a bold statement, but have you had training sessions that have just gone badly, where you’ve felt like crap and you can’t explain why or had weeks when you feel invincible?

It’s likely to be because of when you were in your menstruation cycle. David, Jody and Allie speak to Renee McGregor about how the hormones women produce at different times of their cycle directly affect performance, nutritional needs and even when you should race.

We find out why and how to create training plans to match your varying physiology so you can not only train smarter and banish the bad days but also use your cycle to your advantage.

This really is a must-listen for all female athletes and all men who want to break the taboo around talking about periods.

Understanding RED-S with sports and eating disorder dietician Renee McGregor

Read more

Sports and eating disorder dietician Renee McGregor is this week’s guest on the 33Fuel podcast. Renee has over 20 years’ experience working in a range of capacities, from NHS clinics to Olympic athletes within a range of sports.

Within her unmatched depth of nutrition, one of Renee’s particular areas of expertise is the subject of RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency Syndrome). RED-S is ultimately caused by a combination of overtraining and under-fuelling, but it’d be remiss to think only elite athletes develop it.

Our conversation explores how anyone can develop RED-S. Indeed, the average amateur athlete striving for optimal performance while juggling life’s stressors can certainly develop the syndrome and, if unchecked, there can be serious health consequences.
