If your sports practice is regular and intensive, a visit to a sports nutritionist will quickly become necessary. Your nutritional balance and the effective adaptation of your diet will help you feel better about your body.
For what type of athlete?
You don’t have to be an elite athlete to see a nutritionist; As soon as your practice of sport is intensive (more than three or four hours a week), your diet will play an important role in your training. Without a competent and efficient person, how do you know what diet, what food orientation to adopt, how many foods to consume or even what products to select? Therefore, a nutritionist fits perfectly into a somewhat elaborate training program. You will quickly discover that with regular follow-up from a nutritionist, seriously modifying your diet, the progress of it will be visible quite quickly. Know that all athletes are affected by nutritional problems: cycling, climbing, tennis, team sports… but also, of course, endurance sports such as running; Coming to a marathon without following serious nutritional preparation is equivalent to going straight for the wall.
What goal should you set?
A nutritionist can help you at different levels, for example:
- Playing sports with a dietary requirement (gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian diet)
- gain muscle mass
- Lose weight
A typical sports nutritionist program
First, you can tell your nutritionist your goal, your profile and your expectations. You will describe your sports practice and your projects in terms of competition (preparing for a tournament or a marathon, etc.)
Your nutritionist will ask you a complete series of questions about your eating habits, your schedule, your weight, if you have any food allergies, and of course your general health…
Once these elements have been determined, the nutritionist will work with you to establish an appropriate eating program. Sometimes it will even give you recipes that you and those around you will love! Modified dissociated diet, ketogenic diet, Scandinavian diet… which one suits you best? You will then practice regular follow-up with your nutritionist, to assess the progress made and set new goals.
