Ep 88: Addressing Gut Issues Among Runners with Dr. Patrick Wilson
In the 88th episode of Run with Fitpage, we had the opportunity to speak with a well-known and respected researcher, Dr. Patrick Wilson. Dr. Wilson is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science and directs the Human Performance Laboratory at Old Dominion University. Vikas and Dr. Wilson talk all about an athlete’s gut, GI Distress, and more.
Dr. Wilson earned a bachelor’s degree in dietetics from Minnesota State University and a master’s and doctoral degree in exercise physiology from the University of Minnesota. He also completed a 10-month dietetic internship at the prestigious Mayo Clinic and received post-doctoral training in sports nutrition at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He is a credentialed Registered Dietitian through the Commission on Dietetic Registration and is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Dr. Wilson has authored over 45 scientific articles that span the disciplines of exercise science, sports nutrition, and health. He has spent hundreds of hours studying how dietary and psychological factors impact gut function and symptomology in exercisers and athletes, and he has been interviewed for his expertise by numerous national media outlets, including the New York Times, Outside Online, the Globe and Mail, and Runner’s World.
Vikas hosts this weekly podcast and enjoys nerding over-exercise physiology, nutrition, and endurance sport in general. He aims to get people to get out and ‘move’. When he is not working, he is found running, almost always. He can be found on nearly all social media channels but Instagram is preferred:)
