Myth busters – exposing healthy diet and exercise myths. ‘High fat, low fat, carb loading, high carb, low carb, do this before, training, do that after training’…does that sound familiar?
Meet Professor John Hawley and Professor Louise Burke OAM, also known as the exercise and nutrition mythbusters!
Their job? To pull apart and test a selection of the weird, wonderful and potentially credible diet and exercise myths that are targeted to increase performance. Putting the most popular ‘myths’ to the test, our Mythbusters will examine and present evidence based on their findings – some myths may be ‘busted for good’ while others, surprisingly, may present with genuine merit.
A fun, engaging, highly credible and social experiment that is open for public interaction and opportunity.
