We provide a holistic approach to sports nutrition & performance


Nutrition for endurance sports is more than grams of carbohydrate and protein!  It is a combination of your training plan, intensity, volume, recovery, stress, lifestyle, work life, and enjoyment of food!

Customized & Individualized

A meal plan is only a fraction of a nutrition service. Speaking with a Registered Dietitian about nutrients, time of meals, and how to self adjust your meal plan when life doesn’t go as planned.  Understanding why, when and what to eat gives you the power to make confident decisions about your food choices.

Registered & Integrative

We are licensed and registered Board Certified Dietitians, which requires us to know nutrition science, exercise physiology, metabolism, biochemistry, and kinesiology.

In addition to Sports Nutrition we also follow the tenets of Functional Medicine, to provide you with a whole body approach.

Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes

Training/Race Day Plans

Creation of fueling and hydration plans for your sprint, olympic, half or full ironman distance race; 26.2, 30k, 50 mile and 100 mile running plans. These plans should be initiated one month prior to the week during which your training plan has the longest workouts and/or duration of training hours. This allows time to begin testing methods and timing of fueling ideas, so that a race day plan can be tested during long workouts.

For Ironman distance events this plan should be initiated one month prior as well, or during a training cycle/camp when you will be training in the same environment as race day.  The first part of the plan determines sweat rate and maximum fluid intake and the type of electrolyte/carbohydrate beverage that works best for you in combination with other forms of carbohydrate. Recommendations are specific to the race course and environment.

We determine if you are under or over-fueling before or during an event, and plan recovery nutrition strategies.  Travel nutrition tips and plans are included to get you to your race healthy and energized.

Wellness & Weight Loss

 

Optimum Wellness Nutrition

The  Optimum Wellness Plan is our flagship nutrition service that follows the philosophies of functional medicine.  An in depth look at your current health that is measured by Biochemical markers, physical signs and symptoms, other serum blood labs, and possible hormonal labs through collaboration with a physician.  This is a comprehensive journey that I guide my clients on, to determine what is making them feel unwell.

Outline of the Plan:

  • Dietary Analysis: I analyze the information clients submit in a dietary, behavioral and lifestyle log.
  • Identify triggers
  • Determine specialized diet: Elimination, FODMAP, LEAP, Gluten Free, Dairy Free etc…Tests to consider: Saliva, Blood, Stool.  (Some of these can be coordinated with your Primary Care Physician, and others will be ordered by me with specialized labs).

What you receive:

Determining what makes you feel ill can be an exhaustive process.  Often, we are so caught in the day-to-day symptoms that it is difficult to see beyond that. I  provide support for my clients so that the big picture, or long term goal is kept in sight.

  • A minimum of 5 in-person (or Skype, or phone) 60-70 min. consultations, or what I refer to as “strategy, support, and guidance sessions.”You can choose a grocery store tour in place of a “regular” consultation session.
  • Unlimited email
  • Expertise of a licensed clinical dietitian. I have several referral networks with PCP’s & Endocrinologists, and collaborate with them on Patient Care and blood work.xpertise knowing which labs (saliva, blood, stool) to order and how to interpret the results.

Specialization in hormonal balance, hormonal changes in response to weight loss, disordered eating, eating disorders, bone mineral density, anemia, and the female athlete triad.Optimum Wellness Cost: $275/month

Eating Disorders

I work with men and women in recovery from disordered eating or an eating disorder (ED) using nutrition education, meal plans, and behavioral support. Clients address their triggers and behaviors at their own pace, and work with the Dietitian to create practical and comfortable goals while implementing new behavior patterns.

There are many restrictive eating patterns that are very common and affect long term health. Often a sense of control and perfectionism drive us with a motivation of being healthy that subsequently, becomes unhealthy when our life feels out of control, and we cling to our behaviors (restricting, purging, laxative abuse, diuretics) to regain our sense of being “on track, able, reliable, and having our lives together.”

Endurance Athletes Strive to be Thin
Competing in endurance sports (triathlon, ultra running, cycling) or anesthetic sports (gymnastics, wrestling) often places pressure on us to look the part of an elite athlete. When we attend events we may feel inadequate regardless of how hard we train, simply because we think we aren’t lean enough. You know that it isn’t rational but if you haven’t lived up to making perfect food choices, or resisted eating “bad” foods, then you may not feel worthy of being an athlete at a specific event These are thoughts that affect your health in the long term – bone density, hormonal imbalance, vitamin & mineral deficiency.
