Yet most triathletes see a dietitian LAST, after they've:
😒 Tried and failed to get their ideal body composition
😝 Tried every random fad or quick fix diet
🤭 Struggled with fuelling and vomited their guts up on the run, had to race to the loo multiple times, or planned their training runs around the toilets on their route!
😳 Bonked, hit the wall, repeatedly fallen into a hole or peeled themselves off the pavement
🤕 Suffered from a stress injury/fracture or chronic fatigue.
As an Advanced Sports Dietitian, I can help you with your training and a meal/race plan and I've worked with many triathletes, both 1:1 and in the Triathlon Nutrition Academy. What I, and they, can tell you, is the long term benefits kick in when you engage further - take ownership, prioritise your overall health and learn and understand the foundations - the HOW and WHY of nutrition.
💡 Control the controllables - what you put in your mouth is controllable
❓What habits do you have around nutrition?
❓What issues hold you back from fuelling properly and taking care of your body?
❓What's the root cause? Fix that. No more band aids.
❓When you retire from triathlon, what shape do you want your body to be in? You have a small window to get this right!
💡 Do the work once and see the benefits FOREVER.
🎧 Take a listen to this week's Triathlon Nutrition Academy podcast to know why getting this right is so important to your long-term health and performance (now and beyond your life as a triathlete).
