Today’s episode is week 3 of the nutrition series! This episode is with returning guest, Anna Turner. We are breaking down lab work in this episode. We are talking about the lab work that we should all be getting done every year as adults in addition to the lab work that we should be getting as athletes. Specifically, we break down vitamin D, iron and ferritin, Vitamin B12, magnesium. Then we do a bit of a case study with one of the athletes that I coach and that Anna works with on nutrition.
