Fueling your body with the proper calories and nutrients is half the battle of keeping your body in performance shape. That's why we offer detailed nutritional counseling to pair with your training program. Our objective is to optimize the energy systems required for your sport or activity, as well as the energy requirements of the current phase of your program. Our Nutrition Programs are designed by our physicians so that you can be sure you are receiving proper guidance.
Protein is one of the most important macro-nutrients for an athlete. It helps repair and build connective tissue like muscles and tendons. Our programs consider the demands of the athlete's sport, how much protein they actually need to be consuming, and what sources are best.
Fruits & Vegetables
While they're not the sexiest part of your diet program, fruits and vegetables contain tons of the micro-nutrients (like vitamins and minerals) that your body needs to function like a well oiled machine. Neglecting this aspect of your diet program will negatively impact your performance eventually.
Carbohydrates are a primary fuel source for most athletes. However, with carbs, meal timing can be just as important as quantity. We'll show you what carbs are good, what carbs are bad, and when the best time to consume them is.
Our bodies are made up of over 70% water. As an athlete you may be losing much more of that water than the average individual. Dehydration impacts how well you recover from workouts and competition. Fortunately, we'll help provide you with great tips to help track just how much water you should be replenishing with.
Fat is NOT the enemy. Lipids (the building block of fatty acids) are an important energy source, as well as crucial to hormone regulation. Just like with carbs, we'll show you what the best sources of fat are and why its important for you.
Ideally, you should aim to receive as much nutrients from whole foods as possible. However, supplements used correctly can help account for certain dietary restrictions as well as aid in recovery, performance, and overall health.
