October Core Diet Office Hours

Hi athletes!

We kicked off our Core Diet "Office Hours" a few weeks ago and we will now be implementing them monthly!  Our next one will will be held on this coming Monday, October 24th at 8pm EST. These “Office Hours” will be held through our online chat module and hosted by the Nutrition Program Director, Jaime Windrow

As a reminder, these are very similar to office hours over at QT2, ORR and TRF except that all questions will be focused on nutrition and fueling.  So start gathering your questions! 

All 1on1 athletes and current Core Diet clients are welcome to join, and no pre-registration is required. To join, log into your Member Area on The Core Diet website and click on "Chat Room".There will be no set agenda, except the questions that you bring. Get any of your nutrition and fueling questions answered in real time or just listen along!

The Race Weight Countdown

Originally posted on Ironman.com 7/1/14

Many athletes who come to work with me have a similar goal: Finding out their ideal race weight and the best way to get there. Optimal race weight, however, can only be determined by peeling back the layers that make up the whole athlete. These not only include the individual athlete's body composition, age, gender, competition level and length of races, but their emotional relationship with food, any previous patterns of disordered eating, weight loss/gain history, level of commitment and sacrifice, to name a few. For simplicity's sake, this article focuses solely on the numbers.

The Best Time of Year To Eat Wild Salmon

When I first start working with a new athlete, I will usually review some food logs to see how things are progressing. You know what I see? Chicken. And lots of it! Chicken and broccoli. Chicken on a salad. Chicken on a low carb wrap. While a skinless, free-range chicken breast is a great source of lean protein, my fear is that food boredom is right around the corner. Well now is the perfect time of year to branch out!

What is Sea Salt, anyway?

Healthify Your Comfort Food

As the colder months roll in and slowly envelop us in frigid air, our food choices start to change.  Our penchant for salad goes by the wayside and we start craving more comforting foods: warm, creamy soups; toasty, gooey casseroles; and oodles of noodles.  All the delicious foods that, if eaten with abandon, help create the lovely padding around our midsection– a thermal layer that keeps up warm through these chilly months.

Leucine: Improving Muscle Gain & Maintenance

As a triathlete, you work your tail off throughout the season to perform your best in that A race.  The first part of your season consists of building a solid base; gaining strength in the gym that will transition to power on the bike and in the run.  The second half of your season is devoted to speed and continued aerobic improvement.
