Fueling for peak performance
What is sports nutrition?
Sports nutrition goes beyond a typical “balanced diet” conversation that all teens might have with their doctor. It’s a precision analysis of the energy demands of each sport and how student-athletes can maintain a healthy weight, prevent injury and effectively fuel for everyday practice and game day.
Sometimes, overly restrictive diet plans can have negative long-term health impacts for student-athletes. Under-fueling (not getting enough calories for their activity level) can contribute to depression, increased stress levels and poor sleep. A sports nutritionist can ensure your student-athlete is getting all the nutrients they need to stay healthy as well as perform at their best.
