"From the Ground Up" How to Fuel Your Best Base Season eBook
January 11, 2018
I’m very excited to deliver my first eBook, geared toward performance-driven and “get back on-long (or very-long) course” athletes, who want to build a strong 2018 nutrition base.
Often designated the “fourth leg” of triathlon, nutrition can be a hastily-put together strategy, even though we are constantly making decisions regarding food and hydration before, during and after our training sessions. Take the guesswork out of your fueling strategy.
This 40-page eBook contains a 6-week program designed for you to integrate simple, effective nutrition + lifestyle recommendations into fueling your most powerful base season yet.
A happy byproduct of making the nutrition + lifestyle modifications in this guide may include weight loss. During building or racing season isn’t the time to lose excess weight - now is, when you are training hasn’t hit its peak, but you are still banking training hours and can integrate and test nutrition + lifestyle adjustments along the way.
Here is a glimpse of weekly topics covered:
Week 1: Hydration + Sleep
Week 2: Pantry Staples + Energy
Week 3: Dark, Leafy Greens + Flow
Week 4: Crunchy Veggies + Unhealthy Habits
Week 5: Mushrooms, Sea Veggies + Support System
Week 6: Meal Harmony + Mindfulness
Woven into weekly lessons are recipes, articles and Heidi’s best practice tips + guidance. There is also a section detailing timing + optimal choices surrounding breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you choose the semi-customized option, you will turn in your weekly assignments (+ 3 day food/activity journal) to Heidi and she will give you feedback on making further improvements. After registering for this option, you’ll receive an online questionnaire to help Heidi sculpt the best recommendations for you!
To fully customize your nutritional journey, purchase this book and receive $50 off a 3, 6 or 9 month nutrition program with Heidi, which includes a comprehensive health intake and specific nutrition recommendations, based on lifestyle, budget and other important factors. Meal planning, race-day fueling + grocery store tours are included in this option. Contact Heidi directly at Heidi@nutritionbyheidi.com or 415-992-1042 for more information on setting up this type of consultation.
