Sports Nutrition

Fuel your workouts and athletic performance

From enthusiasts to professionals

Sports nutrition is a specialization within the field of nutrition that partners closely with the study of the human body and exercise science. Sports nutrition focuses on the development of a daily eating regimen to fuel workouts, facilitate the rebuilding and repair process following exercise and optimizing athletic performance in competitive events, while also promoting overall health and wellness. The focus on sports nutrition is frequently thought to be reserved only for the elite competitor; however, my practice includes helping individuals who range from the fitness enthusiast through the competitive amateur or professional.

Whether you are an endurance, strength/power, or team sport athlete, I will develop an individualized sports nutrition program for you. The program can include a nutritional analysis, daily meal plans and nutrition goals, hydration strategies, and race/game day nutrition plans.

What do plans include?

Race/game day nutrition plans include what and how much you should consume within 24 hours of the event, as well as exact amounts of fuel to consume throughout the entire competition. Tournament plans that span several days can also be developed.

One of my specialty areas is helping triathletes to meet their race goals, from sprint through Ironman-distance events. Read the testimonials here.

Other services

In addition to individual nutrition consultations, I also provide the following services:

Athletic Department, Club or Team Sports Nutrition Services

I will help to develop sports nutrition policies and procedures for your athletic department or team. I will manage and execute sports nutrition programs tailored to the needs of your athletes, coaches, parents, athletic trainers, and strength and conditioning coaches. I will also work closely as a team with physicians, sports psychologists and therapists. My team approach will help to effectively enhance athletic performance as well as manage athletes with medical concerns or disordered eating.

I am currently the sports dietitian for all the IUPUI Athletic Teams as well as Community Health Network Sports Medicine.

Team Presentations

I will develop team presentations that will educate and inspire your athletes, coaches and parents. Session topics will depend on the specific needs of your team. However, popular performance nutrition topics include:

  • Daily nutrition needs for specific sports
  • Pre- and post-workout and competition nutrition guidelines
  • Hydration strategies
  • Supplementation for athletes
  • Healthy weight loss or weight gain guidelines
  • Changing body composition
  • Prevention of eating disorders
  • Travel nutrition tips
  • Healthy snack preparation
  • Quick, and healthy meal planning
  • Grocery shopping tips and hints

Coach Seminars

Seminars will be created for your coaching staff based on your needs and requests. Sessions can be conducted for an athletic department, sport-specific conferences, certification courses, and club teams. Scheduling a session exclusively for your coaches will ensure a consistent message will subsequently be delivered to all athletes throughout the season.
