We've come a long way in exercise physiology and sports nutrition research - the field is constantly evolving, and the traditional approaches for fueling athletes that rely on carbohydrate heavy foods and sugar for fuel may not be a valid strategy for supporting your health and wellness. Often times optimizing for max performance and maximizing for longevity are conflicting goals.
ARE YOU AN ATHLETE WHO STRUGGLES WITH THE FOLLOWING?
GI distress (gas, bloating, diarrhea, nausea)
Bonking during a competition or training sessions
Gains in strength and/or endurance
Irritability, mood instability at meal times (aka "hangry")
You have a solid training regimen, but feel like nutrition is the missing piece of the puzzle
If you answered yes to any one of those questions you're in the right place. It's time to let go of old, outdated fueling methods and benefit from everything that modern science is teaching us about sports nutrition! Long gone are the days of having to rely on sugary sports drinks, gels, bars, and carb loading before a big event or training session.
We focus on altering your daily nutrition plan depending on your training cycle in order to support your physical goals. Did you know that what you eat every day can impact how your body uses its internal fuel sources during exercise? You can become more metabolically efficient by making the shift from being a "sugar burner" to becoming a more efficient "fat burner" by teaching your body to improve the use of its almost unlimited fat stores. When your body is more efficient at using fat at higher exercise intensities, your hourly fueling needs decrease. This method preserves your extremely limited glycogen stores during exercise, maximizing your performance at a higher capacity and for a longer duration WITHOUT the need for aggressive sugar and calorie intake. This is done by manipulating the right types and quantities of carbs, protein, and fat to control and optimize blood sugar in a way that promotes a higher degree of fat burning. You don't have to eliminate food groups. There's no restriction. And it's not a ketogenic diet. Blood sugar control and optimization is the name of the game, and can be done in a practical and sustainable way.
WHAT BEING A MORE EFFICIENT "FAT BURNER" MEANS FOR YOU:
Sustained energy levels
No more GI distress
Improved concentration, mental clarity, and focus
Improved body composition
Improved power to weight ratio
Improved blood lipids and insulin sensitivity
Become healthier, leaner, and train faster and stronger than ever before!
