Week one is all about the importance of nutrition for athletes, and eating high-quality, whole, therapeutic foods. These modules include education on what foods are important to get into your daily diet and how to properly read labels for your health, even beyond what you may already know as an athlete.  Every week, we have a one-on-one session discussing the modules and applying the information based on your individual, unique needs and health. At the first appointment, information from your intake form and 3 day food record will be assessed and recommendations will be provided. We'll discuss any recent lab work, medications, and evaluate any supplements, if needed. Anthropometric measurements, (body composition, measurements, etc. ) whether conducted at the first appointment or by a reliable method prior to the appointment will be evaluated and discussed. In addition any questions on the modules regarding the importance of nutrition for athletes.  All 3 programs will provide a foundation meal plan based on your current health, training phase, intensity, frequency and duration, athletic goals, stage of life and health needs.  

 

Each program has a sports nutrition outline addressing sports nutrition subjects for each week.  For example, week three is Hydration, week four is Pre and During Fueling, week five is Recovery Nutrition, etc. No matter what the theme is, every session goals will be set and outcomes assessed.  The sessions also include individualizing the information from the module that week, and any other nutritional issues.
