Initial Sport Nutrition Assessment
This is for those people who want to focus on individual nutrition issues with a Registered Dietitian specializing in sport nutrition. This assessment will include dietary and training questions in relation to the types of individualized issues an athlete may be facing. An appreciation and understanding of the energy differences throughout the training weeks and/or months are important in guiding nutrition recommendations. An energy budget will be developed to help athlete’s meet their energy needs for health and performance.
Energy Budgeting Follow-Up Consultation
This follow-up consultation is for those clients who have completed an initial assessment. In this session you will work with a Registered Dietitian specializing in sport nutrition to develop an energy budget to meet your current energy needs for health and performance. This energy budget will guide you in food choices to ensure that you are getting appropriate carbohydrate, protein, fat, fluid, and calorie intake based on your age, weight, height, gender, weekly training and physical activity level.
Meal Planning Follow-Up Consultation
This follow-up consultation is for those clients who have completed their initial assessment and energy budgeting consultation. The meal plan will be your guide for making meal and snack choices. It will also include ideas for pre-workout, during workout, and post workout eating based on your daily exercise or training program.
Follow-Up Sport Nutrition Counseling
Follow-up sport nutrition counseling is available for those clients who have completed a sport nutrition assessment and want to work on individualized hydration strategies, pre and post workout meal planning, and/or periodized nutrition for sport performance with a Registered Dietitian specializing in sport nutrition.
As Needed Follow-Up Consultations
Follow-up sport nutrition consultations are available for those clients who have completed a sport nutrition assessment and have specific questions about the use of sport nutrition supplements or functional foods that they are interested in for their personal health or sport performance. These sessions are encouraged for current clients as a follow-up to provide on-going expert advice as needed
*Body Composition/Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Assessment
A body composition test in conjunction with a RMR analysis measures your unique body composition and your personal caloric requirements. An accurate assessment of your body composition and RMR helps you, your Dietitian, and your Coach or Personal Trainer to better plan and evaluate your nutrition and training programs. This body composition test is done with the latest in multi-frequency bio-electrical impedance analysis using the InBody570. The extreme accuracy of this analysis makes it possible for the InBody570 to monitor the slightest body composition changes during the process of weight loss/gain and sport performance training programs.
You will record your food and fluid intake for 3 days (2 weekdays and 1 weekend day) and also log your physical activity on a web-based tool Food Prodigy. Your food and activity log will be analyzed using one of the top software programs in North America. Your nutrition summary will provide a list of nutrition and physical activity recommendations based on your health goals. It will also include a list of any nutrients your diet may be deficient in, such as B vitamins, calcium, iron, or zinc.
Additional Sport Nutrition Meal Plans: Cost $150/meal plan
Different meal plans can be developed to meet the needs of the different periodized cycles in your annual training program. For instance, weight management strategies and calorie control will be needed in the transition between the end of one competitive cycle and the preparation of a new competitive cycle. Carbohydrate loading for endurance athletes would be appropriate in the competitive cycle and specific guidance with respect to macro-nutrient quantity (e.g. carbohydrate, protein, and fat needs), micro-nutrients (e.g. iron, sodium, calcium, Vitamin D), timing of nutrients (recovery nutrition), and hydration (fluid and electrolytes) would be essential in the preparation and competitive cycles for all athletes.
Comprehensive Sport Nutrition Package
The comprehensive assessment includes TWO body composition and resting metabolic rate analyses, an initial sport nutrition assessment, a dietary analysis on Food Prodigy, an energy budgeting and meal planning session, development of a sport nutrition daily meal plan, AND two 30 minute nutrition counseling sessions with a Registered Dietitian specializing in sport nutrition.
PowerFuel™Sport Nutrition Workshop
Are you unsure of which foods to eat before, during, and after training? Are you wondering when the best time to eat for maximum benefit is? Perhaps you are chronically fatigued by the end of each week and your performance is deteriorating? This workshop will help you select the best foods and fluids so that you can train longer, recover more quickly, avoid injuries, and achieve your sport performance goals. The workshop includes a resting metabolic rate test so that you can plan your energy budget for peak health and performance – to be refueled, ready to go, and achieving your sport and health goals!
Energy Budgeting Workshop
Athletes will record a 3 day food and exercise log BEFORE the workshop. This workshop starts off with a body composition test with the InBody230 in conjunction with a RMR analysis to measure lean body mass, body fat mass, muscle development, hydration status, and personal caloric requirements. Athletes will develop an energy budget to meet their training needs for different performance goals: eating for weight loss, power and/or endurance. They will then compare this with their typical intake from their food log to see what they are doing well and where they can make some improvements.
