Thanks to Peter's knowledge and ample experience as an athlete, the counseling is based on practical needs for a particular sport. Every athlete receives an individual nutrition plan based on a 4 day food diary and factors like training, sex, age, body composition, sport and goals.
It is often found that many athletes have suboptimal or worse diets. Some try to compensate for a bad diet with supplements. However, there is no substitute for a healthy diet. Either because of poor knowledge or lack of discipline, wrong food choices are made.
A consultation analyzes the athlete's current nutrition and training practices to produce a well-designed diet that provides:
- Optimal gains from the training program
- Enhanced recovery between workouts and events
- Achievement and maintenance of an ideal body weight and physique
- A reduced risk of injury and illness
- Confidence in being well-prepared to face competition
- Consistency in achieving high-level competition performances
- Enjoyment of food and social eating occasions
In most sports proper body composition plays a key role in success. In these instances proper off-season weight management and competition season body composition is critical.
Many athletes take supplements. The reasons are diverse. Commercial interests make it hard for an athlete to decide which supplements work and which do not. Peter knows what claims can stand the test of science.
The normal diet should be the main focus of proper nutrition, but supplementation can be helpful in certain situations. Contaminated and counterproductive supplements are to be avoided.
