What Can Sports Nutrition Do For You?

athletes must eat the fight foods

Eating the right foods in the right amounts is the key to building lean muscle and performing at optimal levels. Our team of dietitians will take an athlete’s metabolic rate, unique nutrition needs, and athletic goals into consideration when developing a nutrition plan.

Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are the building blocks of an athletic physique, but don’t worry: They are not the only building blocks! We cater to the vegetarian and vegan sport community, too. Nutrition HealthWorks’ knowledgeable team of registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) is well-versed in plant-based alternatives to fuel your body through intense activity.

We know under-hydrating can cause performance issues. What you might not know is over-hydrating can dilute key nutrients within the body, leading to a whole different set of performance problems. These requirements are unique to each individual, and our team can help monitor and calculate the proper balance for you to perform your best.

You may have heard the term “timing” as it relates to the perfect moments to fuel up on the nutrients your body needs to perform its best. Taking advantage of these opportunities can increase energy, decrease recovery time, and give you the competitive edge you need to stand out for college sports recruiters!

Let me spread the word as I continue to learn so much about diet and how it must be individually applied for optimal health. Nutrition Healthworks and Lydia have helped me navigate nutrition facts versus fiction (there is a lot of that out there) as well as improving sleep and hydration. She has helped me tweak some things that as a lifelong athlete I thought I knew but I didn’t know. This has been very helpful and you need to connect. I connected through the Y and BCBS but however you do it this is my place to go!

“I’ve learned so much in working with Kelly over the past year. She listens closely to what I’m sharing and helps me develop achievable and actionable goals. She’s helped me develop a solid sports nutrition plan in training for my ultra and half marathon. In addition to her vast nutritional knowledge, she is kind and truly cares about my welfare. She’s positive and encouraging. She stays on top of all of our follow up items and follows through on every action item. I’m grateful for Kelly’s guidance and genuine care in my nutrition journey!
