Due to a complex interaction of geological and environmental factors, periods of micronutrient deficiency were likely common throughout human evolution. It makes sense that the body would have mechanisms in place to maintain short term survival during such periods, even if it were deleterious to healthy ageing [1]. Throughout history, natural selection has been known to favour short-term survival over long term health if the two are in conflict. Selection for reproductive success early in life may involve trade-offs that shorten lifespan [2]. These mechanisms are witnessed across many species and seem consistent throughout nature.

Fats are a critical part of any diet, providing the body with its primary source of long term stored energy. Many other metabolic pathways, such as membrane formation and hormonal control, rely on an adequate fat supply to function. There are many different types of fats, some that are beneficial to health and some that are very detrimental. Understanding the role of fats is an essential part of developing a performance-based diet.

The microbiome is an aspect of nutrition that often gets overlooked, especially in the athletic community. However, our bodies have co-evolved with thousands of species of bacteria, to the point where we now rely on their function to optimise our health. Providing your microbiome with the proper nutrients can have vast implications on your health and your ability to achieve peak performance.

Ultra-endurance refers to your body’s capacity to sustain exercise for a very long time period. It is mainly determined by the body’s ability to generate and utilise energy through multiple metabolic processes. Ultra-endurance is growing in popularity, with events that last hours, days, and even weeks becoming more common in the athletic and recreational fields.

Endurance refers to your body’s capacity to sustain exercise for an extended period. It is determined largely by the ability to distribute oxygen around the body and utilise it for energy production within the muscles. Many sporting disciplines require an endurance component, and in many cases, it is the key determinant for success.
