Nutrition

Staying healthy is an important part of any athlete's training. Our team offers sports nutrition and metabolic rate evaluation to help you stay happy and healthy in everything you do. We can help you learn how to manage your health and nutrition needs and monitor weight loss and gain for peak performance.

Metabolic Rate Evaluation

Understanding your metabolic rate can help you control your weight loss and gain, weight related health conditions, and identify balanced eating strategies. Our program features:

  • Use of the MedGem oxygen consumption device to determine metabolic rate and percent body fat
  • Review of your current physical activity, calorie intake, and nutritional needs
  • Detailed information explaining metabolic gap
  • Personalized plan of action including nutrition consultation, meal planning, and exercise goals

Sports Nutrition

Learn how to manage your health and nutrition needs while enjoying food you love. Our sports nutritionist, Dr. Cindy Cassell, can help you develop skills related to nutrition choices, physical activity, stress management, and behavior modification. All nutrition plans are individualized. You will learn how much protein, carbohydrate, and fat is in your current diet; as well as any nutrients that your diet may be deficient in such as zinc, calcium, or iron.

Athletes will receive information on caloric intake directed towards performance enhancement. You will also be guided on what to eat and drink before, during, and after events and training sessions.

Food coaching which includes analysis of your favorite restaurants with attention to convenience, budget, nutritional content, and personal likes and dislikes is also available. Our staff can provide follow-up nutritional e-mails to provide ongoing expert advice.

We can also provide in-services and lectures on nutrition and wellness to your team or professional group. Call (937) 395-3924 or click here for more information.
