The No-BS Guide to Triathlon Nutrition

Jul 14, 2023

The best time to work on your nutrition was 6-12 months ago. The second-best time is NOW.



Whether you're on track with the goals you set at the start of the year, you've lost momentum or you didn't set any goals and have been winging it so far this year – draw a line in the sand and let’s do something about it now

Triathletes with a race nutrition plan perform better than those that don’t.

In this post we’ll dive into how to fuel your body for success and make the most of your training sessions, creating sustainable change for a healthier, fitter you.


Making Time for What Matters

As a triathlete, you know how precious time is. Balancing training, work, family, and all the other aspects of life can be a challenge. However, when it comes to improving your nutrition, waiting for the perfect time simply won't cut it. 

The truth is, you'll never have extra hours magically appear in your schedule. It's up to you to make time for what's important. 

The Triathlon Nutrition Academy program is a nine-month commitment that will set you up for a lifetime of success. With focused and strategic nutrition, you can achieve your goals and become the triathlete you aspire to be.



Setting Goals for Success

Now that we're halfway through the year, it's the perfect time to check in and evaluate your progress. 

Are you the type of person who diligently sets and tracks goals, or have you lost momentum along the way? 

Perhaps you haven't set any goals at all. Don't worry, wherever you are, it's never too late to make a change. 

Take a moment to reflect and set achievable, manageable goals for the rest of 2023. By habit stacking and focusing on one thing at a time, you'll build sustainable change and move closer to your aspirations.


The Supercharged Triathlete Formula

Let's explore the eight key components of our Supercharged Triathlete Formula, which will help you unleash your full potential.


Fueling Your Training Sessions. 

Learn strategic nutritional interventions for pre and post-training to maximise your session's effectiveness. Recovery is crucial, and we'll guide you through the building blocks required to adapt and recover optimally.


Eating for the Work Required

Understand the importance of periodising your nutrition to match your training load. Our day-to-day meal plans will support your varied training sessions, ensuring you have the energy you need to excel.


Bike and Run Fueling Strategies

Discover the differences between fueling for cycling and running and the importance of gut training. With our guidance, you'll learn how to fuel effectively during each discipline and avoid gut issues that hinder performance.


Carbohydrate Loading

This advanced strategy requires a customised approach for each race distance. We'll teach you how to super compensate your muscle glycogen stores effectively and optimise your performance on race day.


Understanding Supplements

Cut through the noise and focus on supplements backed by scientific evidence. We'll help you identify performance-boosting supplements that truly make a difference, saving you time, money, and unnecessary confusion.


Hydration for Performance

Hydration is a critical factor in your success as a triathlete. We'll guide you in understanding your individual hydration needs and developing a personalised hydration plan. Proper hydration can enhance your performance and prevent issues like cramping.


Building Sustainable Habits

We emphasise the importance of creating sustainable change rather than adopting short-term, restrictive approaches. By habit stacking and focusing on one element at a time, you'll establish a solid foundation for long-term success.


Accountability and Support

We're here to support you on your journey. Share your goals with us, find an accountability buddy, and celebrate your achievements along the way. You're not alone—we're a community of dedicated triathletes committed to becoming our best selves.


Remember that your health is your wealth. 

Prioritise your nutrition, exercise, and recovery to supercharge your performance and feel your best. Make the most of your remaining months in 2023 by setting achievable goals and building sustainable habits. Together, we'll navigate the minefield of triathlon nutrition, providing you with the practical, no BS guidance you need to succeed.
