Your digestive system is a complex biological machine that breaks down the foods you eat, releasing energy and nutrients that ultimately provide fuel for your body.
Athletigen's founder and CEO, Dr. Jeremy Koenig, recently sat down with Ellie Spain, director of education at ALTIS, to discuss the role of genetics in sports and how the evolution of technologies can aid both coaches and athletes.
Recently, Andrew Gordon, a right winger with the Linköpings Hockey Club of the Swedish Hockey League, spoke with Athletigen before starting his 11th season of professional hockey.
Andrew has been an Athletigen customer for three years and recently purchased the new premium Athletic and Nutrition reports. Already he has seen significant improvements in how he prepares his body for the rigors of elite sports. Following is a Q&A that delved into the specifics of what Andrew experienced as an Athletigen user.
Do you ever wonder why Susan and Jerry at the office can boast about eating ALL the carbs they want and still see healthy results, and yet some people (yourself, perhaps?) complain about packing on the pounds after one bite of bread or a doughnut?

It seems you may have overdone it. The culprit may have been the company softball game Saturday morning or perhaps it was the intense CrossFit workout at the local box later that afternoon. Come to think of it, it was probably running the impromptu 10k on Sunday, particularly given the fact that you didn’t warm up beforehand!
