Are you an athlete with IBS or other annoying gut symptoms?

I help busy athletes fuel their sport and navigate gut issues,

so that they can focus on what really matters, performing their best!

You don't have to be a slave to your gut symptoms and fear food...

For many of my clients, this is not their first rodeo. They have been to the Gastroenterologist, functional medicine doctor, nutritionist, etc. and nothing seems to work.

Eventually they are slapped with an IBS diagnosis and a handout about the Low FODMAP diet and sent on their way.

How frustrating is that??!

Not only are the symptoms getting in the way of you living your normal life but they are also hindering your performance.

It doesn't have to be this way though! You don't have to be fearful of food, give up foods, or be confused about what to eat when. I can show you a better way!

Here's how it works...



First, we will assess the different factors that can be contributing to your unique symptoms. Things like nutrient timing, total energy intake, and meal compositions.



Based on the factors identified, we will create a plan unique to you! No matter how busy you are you will be able to integrate these strategies. Get ready to level up your performance.



Through guided worksheets, group learning, handouts, and resources you will learn and grow in your sports nutrition knowledge.
