Menopause In Athletic Women Is Different – Dr. Stacy Sims

This is a podcast for anyone who is perimenopausal or post menopausal or for anyone who works or lives with this cohort of women from doctors to physical trainers to husbands and brothers.


Dr. Stacy Sims is a true pioneer in the field of exercise physiology and nutrition, because she has been unraveling some horrific truths about science and research and how it relates to women.

Things like showing how most studies are done on men, because women are “too complicated” with their hormones and cycles, and how many products, drugs and treatments are designed by men for men based on this research.

As a researcher, innovator and entrepreneur in human performance, Dr. Sims is truly a beacon of light for all women out there to understand our sex differences in training, nutrition and environmental conditions.

She has combined her knowledge and experience in books like ROAR and a new one coming out called Next Level: Your Guide to Kicking Ass, Feeling Great, and Crushing Goals Through Menopause and Beyond.

She has also launched some kick ass online programs that women of all ages rave about, but the one we are going to talk about today is MENOPAUSE FOR ATHLETES.

I’m now going to give you my honest opinion. This program blew my mind. It is THE best one I have ever gone through. I am already 51 and I have gone through A LOT of them. And I know I am not the only one out there with this opinion.

Dr. Sims is highly qualified to talk about topics like menopause, hormones, food and training. Back in 2007, she was the exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist at Stanford University where she specialized in sex differences for recovery and performance.

And if you do a Google Search, you will find a ton of studies that Dr. Sims has published. She’s really dedicated her life to challenging the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition and health and has created an incredible community of feisty menopausal women along the way.

She now lives in New Zealand with her family and continues to do the amazing work work she does for all of us from there.
