Call in to speak with the host
Welcome to LIVEWELL Radio brought to you by GNC and PacificHealth, makers of Accelerade, Endurox R4, and Accel Gels. In this EXCLUSIVE EPISODE, we go live with renowned sports scientist: Dr. Robert Portman.
Dr. Portman’s research has focused on the impact of nutrition on athletic performance and muscle recovery. He has been a pioneer in the development of nutritional formulations that combine carbohydrate and protein and is responsible for creating and developing the first sports drink specifically engineered to facilitate muscle recovery following exercise.
Dr. Portman has co-authored three books with Dr. John Ivy. Their first book, Nutrient Timing, has been called, “the next important nutrition concept in the 21st Century”. Nutrient Timing dramatically changed the role nutrition plays in performance and its principles have been universally incorporated in the training regimen of athletes at all levels.
The second book, The Performance Zone, creates a nutrition action plan so that every athlete can utilize nutrition to enhance endurance and raise athletic performance.
The latest book, Hardwired for Fitness, uses the latest science to demolish myths that serve as a barrier to getting fit. Hardwired for Fitness shows how, by resynchronizing your body’s natural biologic rhythms, you unleash a powerful arsenal of metabolic weapons to help you get and stay in shape.
His new Portman Calculator allows you to easily compute your nutrition and hydration needs for your workouts or races. The Calculator determines the amount of fluid and nutrition you need to consume before, during and after your activity for optimum exercise performance: www.portmancalculator.com.
It's good to talk.
