Read more

Angela is with Dr Marc Bubbs who works with professional sports teams, leaders and is author of ‘Peak The New Science of Athletic Performance That is Revolutionizing Sports’

They discuss his holistic approach to performance, nutrition and mindset and the important lessons that can be learnt from those who are successful high performers.

Being consistent in your approach is a key in the journey to optimising all aspects of your health and well-being and Dr Marc shares great information and advice on how to achieve good nutrition and a positive mindset.


  • There is much to be learnt from those who are successfully high performing.
  • Being consistent is a fundamental element.
  • When you are organising your time schedule activities at the times you are most likely to achieve them consistently.
  • Minimum effective resistance exercise is 10 sets per body part each week.
  • Always think ‘what’s the minimum I have to do for the maximum benefit?’
  • Diversity is key for optimising your microbiome.
  • Fitness helps to build gut bacteria and eating more real food and a greater variety of food will support diverse gut bacteria.
  • Protein is vital because when we take in protein we also take in minerals and vitamins.
  • Discipline needs to be used to create good habits.
  • The difference in skills between top athletes is very minimal it’s ultimately about mindset.
  • As humans, we default to negative thoughts and when life gets busy you need to train your mindset to be positive and this can be achieved through affirmations.
  • It’s important to understand how you view things is a trainable skill.
  • The brain defaults to thinking negative thoughts and affirmations can be used to effectively change the way you view things.
  • Affirmations can be short and about what you want to happen, taking less than a minute. They have a positive compound effect on the way your brain works.
  • What you eat and how you move are the key to having a better life.


‘50% of what we buy is ultra-processed’

‘The principle of consuming more real food is the start of achieving better nutrition’

‘It’s important to understand how your view things is a trainable skill’

195: Dr. Marc Bubbs on Gut-Biomes, “Phone-Vacations,” Sleep and a “Human First” Perspective to Athletic Performance | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Read more
Today’s episode features Marc Bubbs, naturopathic doctor, performance nutritionist, and author of the best-selling new book "PEAK - The New Science of Athletic Performance That Is Revolutionizing Sport." An integrated and personalized approach to health, nutrition, training, recovery and mindset.

Marc currently serves as the Performance Nutrition Lead for the Canadian Men's National Basketball Team and has a portfolio of elite and professional athletes in Canada, USA, UK and Europe.  He is also the host of the Dr. Bubbs Performance Podcast, bringing together insights from world-leading experts in health, nutrition, training, recovery and mindset.

Having better health (things such as having good nutrition, a diverse gut-biome, strong immune system, adequate sleep and a de-stressed mind) is impactful for not only athletes, but the general population, and is therefore a distinctly “human” element of the human -> athlete -> specialist sequence.  When it comes to athletics, however, markers of health are not always put as much of a priority compared to training methods and sport skills.  As Mark mentions on the show, consistency as a result of good health is very important when it comes to achieving better training over a period of time.

Topics on this episode include the essential elements of a health-centered approach to athletics and human performance, including sleep, gut-biome & nutrition, mental training and mindfulness in a “screen-time” age, and even concepts on team cohesion revolving around food and nutrition.  This is a podcast that not only helps to fill those gaps between training and the human being, but also is one that helps us to continually have a “human first”, “athlete second” perspective that is so important to the well-being of those we serve in the field.

Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.

14:40 How cooking, food and the related community is an important part of team  culture and cohesion in sports

49:40 Mental and psychological training and relaxation methods for athletes
“When we look at some of the research around national to international competitors (in endurance sports), we see that international level competitors get sick 40% less than national level competitors, so if you can just show up every day in the gym or not miss practice, and just not miss days, at the end of that year or block of four years you are going to be that much further ahead than the competition”

"If you have got a 44” vertical leap and are the fastest guy on the floor, do we really need all these other things, or is just keeping you healthy enough to show up every day the key performance lever?”

“In the UK, half of the grocery bill is spent on processed foods…. If you head to Paris, only 14% is spent on processed foods”

“A lot of (team culture) starts with food (sitting at the dinner table together)”

“The night before a game, athletes tend not to sleep well”

“If a guy is getting less than 6.5 and gets his sleep up to 7.5, he can improve his testosterone by 10-15%”
