General health, as well as training and competing as an athlete, is a 24 hour decision making process. The workouts truly become a small component of the day; if you train for 2 hours of a day, you are recovering for 22 hours. Therefore, one must place emphasis on, sleeping, eating, and your daily posture/ activities. Nutrition plays a significant role in either enhancing or undermining personal fitness goals… The Sustainable Athlete wants to be sure your choices contribute to the former.
Proper nutrition needs to address the following:
- Caloric, macro-, and micro- nutrient consumption to support the demands of your current training and racing; periodizing nutrition along with training
- Modifying current nutrition choices to further improve body composition and sport performance.
- Differentiate between “nutrition” and “sports nutrition”.
- Plan and calculate the timing of intake in conjunction with workouts.
- Identifying the differences between biological, habitual, and emotional hunger/ eating.

The only way to truly provide insight towards one’s nutrition choices is with accurate and honest feedback on consumption. The Nutrition Analysis begins with a 3-day food log. Each person will be carefully instructed on entering 3 days worth of intake. The data will then be analyzed to determine daily caloric intake and breakdown of macro-(Protein, Carbs, and Fat) and micro-(Vitamins and Minerals) nutrients. You will receive a written analysis combined with recommendations to better support your current training cycle and goals. The analysis will conclude with a 45 min. phone consult to further explain the results and recommendations as well as answer questions.
