Official nutritionist


Dr. Stacy Sims, MSC, PhD, is an Environmental Exercise Physiologist and Nutrition Scientist working as a Senior Research Fellow at Waikato University’s Adams High Performance Centre. Her research delves into understanding sex differences of heat and/or altitude stress, recovery, genetics, and nutrition to moderate adaptive responses for performance. She is also the author of ROAR, a comprehensive, physiology-based nutrition and training guide specifically designed for women. “Women are not small men” says Sims. She encourages women to “Stop eating and training like one.”

Sims is an athlete herself. Her research stems from her own difficulties with gastrointestinal distress while competing as an Ironman triathlete and elite road racer. In the lead up to Spirited Women 2019, Stacy will be sharing her wealth of experience and knowledge about optimum hydration and nutrition during sport to support competitors toward the best possible performance on race day.
