Fuel Your Athletic Demands

Posted on January 15, 2017 at 6:20 PM

Time to fuel your athletic development!  How do you know how much energy you burn each day?  How do you know if you are matching this with your food intake?  Nutrition is what drives our energy and repairs our body to keep competing.   Poor nutrition can bring down any athlete.

It takes much energy to train, compete and rebuild.  It is important to know how well you are refueling your systems to rebuild damaged tissues as well as maintain energy stores for the following day.  When you register on my dotFIT platform, we can accurately calculate your calorie demands.  By logging your food daily, accounting for timing and amount of food intake, we can clearly see what may need to be modified to keep your calories, protein, carbs and fats working for you and not against you.

In addition to seeing your calories, protein, carb and fat ratios, you will also have access to menus, shakes, protein bars and boosters that are NSF Certified for sport.  This means that a third party tester comes in and tests every batch to make sure there are no banned substances in these products.  When you are an athlete who is competing at top level, taking a product that is not tested can contain banned substances and you will not be allowed to compete.  In order to maintain your status, it is always a good idea to check any supplement label to make sure that it is third party tested as NSF Certified for Sport.

Many college athletes tend to fall short on nutrition requirements due to so many changes.  Tracking your food is a great way to make sure you are staying on the right path.
