“Welcome to Total Nutrition Counseling! I focus on healthy whole foods for fuel and therapuetic benefits to improve your performance.”
My focus is to help athletes and active people meet their athletic, nutrition, health needs and goals, while achieving their optimal level of performance. My foundation of a mostly plant based whole foods diet, with healthy lifestyle changes, and evidence based science sports nutrition recommendations are designed to help the athlete decrease risk of injury, and illness, while meeting their athletic goals. My athletes will receive medical nutrition therapy (high cholesterol, etc.)if warranted in addition to individualized sports nutrition guidance. I emphasize whole foods first for fuel, supplements second if necessary.
I have been a dietitian for 25 years, and have a certification specialization in sports dietetics (CSSD), a coveted certificate that the NCAA, USOC, & professional sport leagues require. My goal for my athletes is to optimize their performance level and be healthy. I provide a sports nutrition regime and foundation diet that is sustainable and practical.
I understand most people realize that sports nutrition is important for training/sport, but they may not know why, or what to eat, or when is the best time, or how to make it practical. That is what I am for, I teach you how to do all of this in a practical way, that is sustainable. My motto: Train Hard, Eat Healthy, Improve your Performance and Feel Good!
