Andrew Dole shares on PHIT for a Queen why “He comes informed when working with his athletes. Addressing Context= individual needs of the athlete.”


  • His style is sorting science with common sense.
  • Dairy can be a great resource as a complete nutritional package for that athlete.
  • When working with his athlete’s takes the approach that you don’t have to take in dairy but what are you going to replace it with?
  • Explore if your food beliefs are driven by who you associate with (culture within sport).
  • Myth #1 -Debunks that humans can drink milk through their adult ages because they have been able to evolve to handle milk consumption.
  • Myth #2- If you are not allergic to dairy there will not be an inflammatory response as a result of dairy consumption
  • Myth #3-Challenges the myth that dairy causes phlegm.
  • Myth #4-When asked if dairy interferes with an athlete’s hormone levels Andrew challenges it with decades of champion athletes that have been vocal about their dairy consumption.
  • M-TOR is a nutrient sensor pathway that is responsible for increasing muscle synthesis.
  • Leucine & Arginine are the light switches for the M-TOR pathway.
  • Myth #5-Whey in comparison to plant-based protein foods you would generally have to consume double the amount to get the same amount of leucine.
  • We are tending to lack the context in which we hear our nutritional science.
