The primary aim of the consultation is to optimise your fuel intake in accordance with the training regime that you will be undertaking.
A dedicated nutritionist will help you to determine the right nutrients in the right quantities to ensure optimal recovery, whilst also addressing underlying nutritional issues that may affect both your performance and your long-term health.
A well-planned nutritional plan developed with specialist knowledge is vital in developing an appropriate and effective nutritional strategy to support your training programme.
Your initial consultation will cover the following:
- An in-depth discussion about: your health history, training programme, performance goals, lifestyle and current dietary patterns - to identify your specific issues and potential solutions.
- Basic assessment of macro and micro-nutrient adequacy
- How to optimise your training, performance and recovery through practising appropriate ‘nutrient timing’ (nutrition before, during and after exercise).
- How to develop an appropriate hydration strategy for training to minimise the risk of either dehydration or hyponatremia.
- Specific guidelines on how to ensure that your diet has an optimal balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, plus adequate vitamins, minerals and fibre, to meet your individual training and performance needs
You will receive practical, easy-to-follow advice tailored to your individual needs using the latest nutritional science. This will help you to achieve optimum nutrition, ensuring that you get the most out of every session, recover more quickly, and achieve your goals faster.
The cost of this is £75 per hour payable in advance.
