How to lose weight the easy way with TNA athlete Renee Ingram

Despite not being a focus of the Triathlon Nutrition Academy program, weight loss, or body fat loss is a surprising side bonus for many of our athletes. 


Academy member, Renee, is a great example of how eating more strategically, instead of constantly trying to eat less and cutting carbohydrates, can lead to body fat loss, without really trying.  

In our recent podcast episode, Renee shared her nutrition journey prior to seeking support from an endurance sports dietitian specialist. She’s been on a big ride (pun intended) and has seen many nutritionists, dietitians, naturopaths etc.


Some of the key light bulb moments she’s realised about eating for triathlon…

  • You don’t have to count calories to lose weight
  • Eating more carbohydrates hasn’t led to weight gain 
  • By eating more strategically around training, it’s easy to achieve your body composition goals 
  • Understanding how to fuel for swim, bike, run has led to more energy and better performance in training

Renee also shared what she’s learned from just Phase 1 of the Triathlon Nutrition Academy (she starts Phase 2 next week) – she now has a plan, she has the knowledge to take control of how she feels and how she fuels on a daily basis, how to periodise her nutrition based on her training goals, how well she recovers after training and how well she performs on race day.
