Why focusing on long-term health is so important for performance as a triathlete

Aug 25, 2022

I'm a big advocate for nutrition. Your body is the number 1 thing that will get you to the finish line.


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).
