Comprehensive Nutrition Consult with Kyla Channell
As an athlete, food is fuel and lifestyle demands can derail even the strongest mind-body connection of wellness. In the comprehensive consult, we will examine current sleep, eating, and training habits. With this background, we will create a plan that fits with your life to enhance body composition, recovery, sleep, and overall health. This is the foundation of health to allow your performance training to have optimal effect.
In addition, we will examine your habits in training and racing to include food/fluid preferences and create a specific race strategy for your distance and needs.
For our female athletes, we will cover women-specific nutrition and fueling principles. The current recommendations for race and training nutrition are generalizations from science conducted primarily on men. Estrogen and progesterone have significant impacts on fluid balance, metabolism, and muscle repair/regeneration; post-menopausal women have an even greater challenge to maintain muscle integrity and lean mass. With this consult, we will develop a specific training/race plan based on your hormone fluctuations to allow you to get the most out of your training and minimize performance disturbances brought on by menstrual cycle hormone variations.
