Here are three popular nutrition focus plans to get summer-ready

  1. Weight Loss
    Want to work on your body composition this summer to achieve your physical or performance goals? It's important to approach weight loss in a safe and sustainable manner. Focus on creating a moderate caloric deficit, choosing low-dense energy foods, and maintaining a balanced diet to reach your goal without sacrificing performance. Prioritize safe weight loss strategies to achieve your desired outcomes while keeping your energy levels high.
  2. Get Race Ready
    Planning to participate in a race or big event this summer? Awesome! To be fully prepared and ready to smash your race, it's essential to focus on your race-specific nutrition. This includes carb-loading before the race, maintaining proper hydration, and having a solid plan for in-race fueling. Prioritizing your nutrition strategy will help you reach your racing goals and perform at your best.
  3. Kickstart Performance Nutrition
    Feeling motivated by the sun and longer days to spend more hours on the bike? Fantastic! Ensuring you fuel your body properly is crucial to keep up with the increased activity, avoid injuries, and maintain enjoyment in your sessions. This is the perfect time to start focusing on your nutrition to sustain your performance. Emphasize the basics like hydration, balanced meals, and recovery snacks to kick off your performance nutrition journey!
