What Is Sports Nutrition Counselling?

Whether you are a competitive athlete or a recreational athlete, sports nutrition counselling can improve your sports performance. A registered dietitian can develop a sports nutrition program and create a strategic eating plan adapted to your lifestyle.

Your nutrition expert will guide you to optimize your macronutrient intake (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) according to your sport and your training frequency. You will also receive easy-to-understand, personalized teaching materials tailored to your needs and objectives. 

No matter what type of sport you take part in, anyone looking to improve their nutrition and fitness can see the benefits of using a sports nutrition counselor. For example:

  • Resistance sports: running, swimming, cycling, skating, pole vaulting, shot put, powerlifting, etc.
  • Intermittent sports: interval running, soccer, basketball, field hockey, rugby, soccer, tennis, badminton, etc.
  • Endurance sports: half marathon, marathon, triathlon, iron man, cross-country skiing, obstacle course, cycling (road and mountain), rowing.
  • People of all ages, genders and fitness levels.

Professional support is a must-have for serious athletes to improve their health and athletic performance as well as recovery times after workouts.

The Diet’s Effect on Athletic Performance

You may be wondering if diet has that big of an effect on performance. For exercisers and athletes alike, how you eat can improve or worsen your performance. What you choose to eat can affect how much energy you have during training. It can also affect many areas of the body that are important for performance such as:

  • Muscle mass
  • Weight
  • Endurance
  • Energy levels
  • Recovery time

A healthy relationship with food will increase performance and improve your athletic abilities. It will allow you to perform at a higher level and maintain your fitness for a longer time.

Reduce risk of injury

Daily training puts a lot of stress on your body and causes it to need an improved diet. It also causes your body to lose essential nutrients. Failure to increase energy intake can lead to weak bones and overworked muscles.

Hydration is another important factor in injury prevention. When you are not hydrated, your physical and mental performance suffers. When this happens, you are more prone to injuries.

A sports dietitian can help you create hydration and electrolyte replacement plans to prevent injuries.

Facilitate recovery from injuries

If you do get an injury while training or competing, proper nutrition can help you heal quicker. The right mix of vitamins and minerals can help your body recover from injury. It will allow you to get back to training faster after an injury.

In addition, your professional will advise you on how to optimize your food intake in order to maintain your muscle mass and avoid unwanted weight fluctuations.

Maintain a Healthy Weight and Body Composition

It is well known that maintaining a healthy body weight can have a positive impact on your life. But there are so many fad diets out there that it may be hard to figure out the best way to manage weight. It can be difficult to nourish your body with all the false information circling.

A registered dietitian can help you design a specialized program to fit your needs. Whether you are looking to lose, gain, or maintain your weight, they can help design a program for you. It will only use scientifically proven ways to achieve your weight goals.

Optimize your Nutrition Supplementation

Nutrition supplementation is a big part of the athletic performance industry. Dietary supplements are not regulated by the government in the same way food is. It’s very difficult to know if a supplement will perform in the way it is advertised.

A dietitian and nutritionist for athletes can help you navigate the supplement industry and educate you. They can help you to understand which supplements work and which ones are best for your goals. They can help you choose evidence-based, safe and effective supplements to improve your performance.

Learn How to Improve and Adapt your Hydration

Hydration in athletic performance can often be overlooked or misunderstood. The amount of fluids and electrolytes needed can vary from day to day, depending on the weather, the intensity of the activity and sweat rate.

Lacking hydration knowledge can harm your athletic performance. It can also lead to an increased risk of injury.

A sports nutrition counselor will advise you on how to replace electrolytes, like sodium and potassium, and evaluate your hydration status. They can create a hydration plan that is designed for you and your body’s needs and recommend specific electrolyte drinks.

Maintaining a Positive Relationship With Food

If you are feeling anxious or obsessive about your food intake, a dietitian can help with intuitive and mindful eating. Athletes are more likely to develop eating disorders than non-athletes. You can work with a dietitian to screen for disordered eating and address the issues.
