- Eat to Compete!
Fueling for performance through a strong 'food first' approach will help athletes gain an advantage over their competition by:
- Optimizing fueling and hydration strategies for improved strength and endurance
- Enhancing recovery
- Improving body composition and making changes in body weight that don’t reduce performance or cause eating problems
- Preventing injuries and promoting healing when they do occur
- Reducing risk of exposure to banned substances
- Learning to eat optimally and healthfully to promote wellness and performance
- Addressing medical issues that are making fueling difficult
- Keeping athletes strong and healthy by preventing problems such as over-training or frequent illness
Performance Nutrition Coaching:
Initial consultations include:
- Thorough review of health history and personal goals.
- Guidance regarding individual nutrition concerns which might include under-fueling, medical conditions, optimizing nutrient density, basic fueling and nutrition questions.
- Initial visits are roughly 60-75 minutes in length and athletes leave better informed about strategies for properly fueling their performance and may include corrective action plans for any problems identified.
Following the initial visit:
- Follow-up sessions are available to review the status of goals established in the first visit, or for any additional questions not previously covered. Changes in training, performance, or to update changes in medical status would all be appropriate items to follow-up on.
- Written training programs that are individualized by sport, health status, and performance goals are available. These plans include recommendations for nutrient timing, recovery and hydration. They also include a sample daily meal plan.
- If you desire a detailed training plan, you must commit to at least 1 follow-up visit to address progress and make any necessary changes. Why work with a Sports Dietitian? Watch the Video.
