Book Review: Roar Dr Stacy Sims.

Book Review: Roar Dr Stacy Sims.

August 04, 2019

I love reading from the real experts when it comes to understanding the role that nutrition plays in the 'performance & recovery' of active people, athletes and weekend warriors.

Dr Stacy Sims book ROAR offers a rare insight based on women's physiology. The key theme throughout the book is that 'women are not little men', so her ideas are 100% focused on the nutritional and training requirements of active females.

The book provides excellent insight and covers everything from nutrition, hydration, hormone cycle, menopause and training and much more.

Some of the key take-outs: 

- Dr Stacy Sims is a big fan of ensuring active females consume enough protein in their diets.  For example, women should take in protein high in leucine before exercise and within 30 minutes of exercising to help maintain muscle when hormone levels are high.

- Dr Stacy Sims also talks about the importance of strength training for active females, according to Sims, after the age of 30 females lose 3% of muscle mass per decade if they don't keep moving/strength train.
