Yay! A rebuttal fromUSA Swimming! At least now I know that they are actually reading my stuff, eh?
I am pretty sure they have been trying to pretend I don't exist since they turned down my application for the National Team Director position.
Jill Castle is an MS, RDN, and has a website that promotes her two books on childhood nutrition, so I have to say she does have some skin in the game here. I am not really making money on this stuff, but that is beside the point. If she is so highly qualified, why is she making so many strong claims with no sources cited to back her up?
Read her article here at the USA Swimming website.
Her claims I can refute?:
“Both a low-fat diet supports and sustains cardiovascular health, and a high-carbohydrate diet is effective at fueling aerobic-based sports such as swimming.”
