Kira Sutherland is an Australian Naturopath and Sports Nutritionist with more than 25 years in clinical practice. She divides her time between clients, lecturing at the undergraduate level, and mentoring practitioners of complementary medicine in the application of holistic sports nutrition. Known for her vibrant, straightforward teaching style, Kira’s focus is to empower and educate at a level where information becomes intrinsic knowledge.

In this episode, we talk about the lack of research including female participants, why females and males don’t benefit from the same approach to exercise, how your body is impacted by intermittent fasting, all the drama around protein and so much more!

This episode is brought to you by Nutrisense, a provider of continuous glucose monitors. Visit Nutrisense.io and use my code NICOLE25 for $25 off your first month.

A Nutrisense CGM is an incredible way to monitor your blood sugar levels in real-time and their app helps you see exactly how your diet and lifestyle specifically affect your blood sugar. I tried a Nutrisense CGM this past summer and it was a game-changer. It was amazing to see how my meals and specific foods were affecting me positively or negatively. There was a whole lot of experimentation while using it to see what worked best for me and some foods were real shockers. Now you can get a Nutrisense CGM and take $25 off your first month of service. This includes two CGMs to be used for two weeks each, the app, and a month of free dietitian support. That support is invaluable and the best part of the service.

If you want to get your hands on a CGM, head to Nutrisense.io and use NICOLE25 for $25 off your first month.
