This is a SPECIAL episode. Not only is it Episode 20! But my guest is superstar Sports Nutritionist Heidi Skolnik, who I worked with during my NYC racing days.

She works at The Women’s Sports Medicine Center at Hospital for Special Surgery and has a private practice, Nutrition Conditioning for Life Performance.

Heidi's practice is based on the science of nutrition. She has authored and co-authored 3 books: Nutrient Timing for Peak Performance, Grill Yourself Skinny, and The Reverse Diet: Lose Weight by Eating Dinner for Breakfast and Breakfast for Dinner.

Heidi still works with private clients through her company Nutrition Conditioning for Life Performance in addition to overseeing the Sports Nutrition program at The Julliard School and School of American Ballet. In the past she’s worked with the NY Knicks, NY Giants, and NY Mets along with NHL, MLS, WNBA, Olympic competitors, professional cyclists, marathoners, and collegiate athletes.
