NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

Nutritional Therapists are trained to use food to modify health and support homeostasis. Equally they recognise that although a balanced diet should meet the needs of an individual, in certain circumstances there are distinct benefits to food supplementation and they are recommended. This should always be in conjunction with a healthy, well-balanced diet and a specific lifestyle programme, and not instead of.



SPORTS NUTRITION


Nutrition is a key aspect of sports performance. Whatever your level of participation, your nutrition can make a difference. From fuelling your training session or competition performance to aiding your recovery afterwards, from building muscle mass to reducing fat mass, nutrition plays a vital role. Getting your nutrition right can allow you to get the very best from your body in your chosen sport.


Sports have differing physical and nutritional demands. Likewise, two people can respond differently to the same training session, can take a different amount of time to recover and undoubtedly will have differing nutritional needs. The Nutritional Therapist’s approach therefore begins with understanding you as an individual, your sport, training and lifestyle.


Prior to your initial consultation you will be asked to fill in a nutritional therapy questionnaire. This includes details of your health, lifestyle, symptoms and a 3-day food diary. In addition you will be asked to fill in a 7-day training diary. The information you provide allows the Nutritional Therapist to prepare in advance for your consultation and maximises the one-to-one consultation time. All information that you provide is confidential, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) code of conduct.

The information you provide allows the Nutritional Therapist to prepare in advance for your consultation and maximises the one-to-one consultation time.

Your initial one-to-one consultation will last 75 minutes. Consultations can take place at Race Hub, Six Hills Lane, Six Hills, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, LE14 3PR or via Skype. It is always preferable to meet in person, particularly for the initial consultation however if this is not possible due to your location Skype is an excellent alternative.


In certain circumstances the Nutritional Therapist may recommend laboratory testing in order to enable further analysis. This will be discussed with you during the consultation and should you wish to proceed with a recommended test arrangements will be made for you.

How Many Consultations Will You Need?

Each person has individual requirements however as a minimum an initial consultation and follow-up are recommended. This will allow the Nutritional Therapist to set out your programme and subsequently monitor your progress against it. If any adjustments are required they can then be made to the programme.


Complex or chronic conditions may require a greater number of consultations. Consultation appointments are generally every four weeks however this can be shorter or longer depending upon the circumstances.

What Do You Get?

Following each consultation you will receive a health optimisation plan via email. This will set out your dietary, lifestyle and supplementation programme. The details of the plan will have been discussed and agreed with you during the consultation.
You may also be sent information sheets, recipes and further reading for your information.
