"After several failed attempts to switch to a plant-based diet on my own, I hired Heidi to help me make the switch while still maintaining my level of performance in endurance sports. Not only was I able to successfully convert to vegetarianism, I had a great season which ended with a 2nd place podium finish at Lake Tahoe Triathlon. Heidi was inspirational and supportive and gave me the tools for long-term success."

"Working with Heidi on my prenatal nutrition was hugely valuable to my pregnancy. Heidi applied her extensive knowledge coupled with a flexible style to develop meal plans that fitted in with my life whilst providing all of the key nutrients for my growing baby. Her naturally positive and compassionate style made each session a lot of fun whilst I learnt how to improve my health throughout my pregnancy and beyond."

"Heidi Buttery is a gifted dietician who has changed my racing trajectory and my life . As someone new to the triathlon, scene , I didn’t do my first triathlon until the age of 43, I had no background in concepts of race or training nutrition, recovery , salt intake, and hydration . I linked up with Ms. Buttery from a teammate as I started my fifth season and I have noted immediate and lasting improvement in training , recovery , and race execution. I executed a flawless half iron distance to start my 2017 season absolutely pain free in my joints or my gut and won my first podium spot ever even at the back end of my age cohort. I am competing in two Ironman Events this year to close out my season as I continue my quest for Kona and Heidi has become a trusted and valued member of my team . She has provided targeted diet plans, shopping lists , recipes and spot on nutrition plans that continue to make a difference and perfectly compliment the training and coaching I receive from Rising Tide Triathlon Coaching. Moreover, she is personable, fun and LISTENS to what I am going through as a dad and active duty Naval officer trying to make this crazy Kona dream come true. She has my highest possible personal and professional recommendation."
