Nutritionist Dietitian, I have created my website to explain to you, in a simple and comprehensive manner, the various aspects of nutrition with a strong focus on athlete nutrition. I have divided the section on dietary advice for athletes into 8 parts: nutrients, sports nutrition, pre, during, and post-workout nutrition, and nutrition by discipline. In addition, I address clinical nutrition, food allergies, and specific considerations for vegetarians.
The different categories of sports-oriented dietary advice
Focus on nutrients, their importance for athletes on a daily basis, as well as on the big day to optimize their diet.
All my tips on sports nutrition, daily diet, and advice to optimize your training and running.
What should you eat during the physical preparation, in the weeks leading up to a race or event, the night before, and at breakfast?
During and after sport
All my advice on nutrition during physical exertion (refueling, hydration, energy bars, gels…) and after physical exertion (recovery).
Nutrition by discipline
What are the specificities when it comes to nutrition for trail running, running, cycling, triathlon, rugby, football, tennis…
Food allergies (gluten, lactose, etc.) lead to changes in consumption, explanations, and solutions.
The vegetarian diet
Vegans can experience deficiencies, especially during physical exertion. I recommend guiding you towards a diet suitable for physical activity.
As a clinical dietitian, I provide you with advice on an appropriate diet based on specific medical conditions.
In sports, nutrition plays a role that is at least as important as training because it is from your plate that your fuel will come. I like to emphasize the following statement:
Having strong legs without fuel is as useless as having fuel without legs!
When you understand and, most importantly, apply this statement, your athletic performance will improve. How many athletes have I seen stop consuming fats or go on restrictive diets in preparation for sporting events?!
This is largely why dietary advice dedicated to athletes is so successful. Depending on the category, you can easily understand the usefulness of lipids, what glycogen is (and what it’s used for), why potassium is beneficial when it’s hot, or what to eat in the week leading up to a race. You will find the answers to all these questions here.
I also offer recipes for athletes, both for race preparation and during the race itself (homemade drinks, gels, or bars), articles about specific dietary regimens (lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan, keto…), comparisons of sports drinks, energy bars, or gels from different brands, and finally, more information about myself and my website. Lastly, I have created a Health Prevention section that includes numerous articles about the link between nutrition and health, such as the importance of probiotics and how to boost your immune system.
If you want to learn more about me, I have created an About Me page.
Frequently asked questions about athlete nutrition
What is the most common bad nutritional advice found on the internet?
The hunt for lipids, fats—I have never understood that because there are essential fatty acids that need to be provided to the body… especially since lipids are the main source of energy after 45 minutes of exercise! I won’t even get into unnecessary dietary regimens… everything that is blindly copied, even though everyone is unique.
What is the best nutritional advice I can give?
Everything is in my articles, and above all, the main advice I can give to one person may not be valid (or even bad advice) for another person. You don’t copy someone else’s training program… do the same with nutrition.
