YOU NUTRITIONAL THERAPY
Sports Nutrition - Stronger You
It goes without saying that nutrition has a significant impact on performance, and if you are training regularly and are serious about what you do, you will understand the importance of nourishing your body to improve performance, recovery and regeneration.
No matter what sport you are involved in (endurance, strength or power based) You Nutritional Therapy can provide support to help you get the most out your training, support your recovery process and help you to reach weight targets in a healthy way.
Stronger You sports nutrition goes well beyond the basic macronutrient balance (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) and focuses on helping to correct any imbalances first of all to lay the foundations of your personalised programme. The initial consultation will focus on this and testing is often recommended, for example:
- Genetic testing can identify your power/endurance ratio, your recovery rate and aerobic potential, as well as your genetic need for certain nutrients (eg. Vitamin D, folic acid and vitamin B12)
- Adrenal stress profiles and other hormone tests can help identify overtraining or any imbalances that could affect your performance and overall health.
- Essential Fatty Acid testing can identify imbalances in the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid families, which can be useful in helping to manage inflammation and recovery.
- Food intolerance testing can identify intolerant foods that could affect weight gain, digestive issues and energy levels.
