Personal Sports Nutrition Consult

This consultation can address any of your personal sports nutrition questions. We often devote the first consult to your personal energy management for daily life and workouts.

How Your Sports Nutrition Consult Works

After you book your appointment, Coach Ryan will assign some simple homework assignments: food logging to establish usual eating habits, exercise log to determine typical energy expenditure, and basic characteristics such as height, weight, and goals/targets. He will use this information to prepare your report and send you the results.

Sports Nutrition Consult for Cyclists, Triathletes, and Runners

Then you will meet with Coach Ryan to calculate and explore your personal sports nutrition baseline:

  • Energy availability
  • Estimated RMR (resting metabolic rate)
  • Daily energy requirements
  • Suggestions that will move you toward your goal(s)
  • Exercise recommendations specific to your goals
  • Fueling recommendations

After your consultation, we will schedule a 15-minute follow-up meeting to be sure your questions were answered and address any topics that may have arisen since your initial consultation.

Race Day Nutrition Plan

Nutrition can make or break your race, leading to a great performance—or negating months of training. Don’t wait until the last minute to think about nutrition; start planning for your best event with our Race Day Nutrition Plan.

Our systematic approach combines lab-grade testing and personalized experimentation to create a custom race day nutrition plan to fuel your best performance.
