Courtney illuminates a perspective on how to approach eating and your relationship with food that is not widely discussed in strength and conditioning circles. Many athletes see nutrition as a vehicle to achieving a better outcome in their sport, whether that’s physique and/or performance related. And while common nutrition approaches (i.e. tracking calories and/or macronutrients, keto, intermittent fasting, plant-based, nutrient timing) are effective at producing desired outcomes like gaining muscle mass and losing body fat, there is a holistic perspective that is largely missed en route to said outcomes.
Driven athletes and New Coaches alike, tune in to learn something new for yourself, and to use with clients to aid them in their process AND goals. Please do use the timestamps to come back to the mindful eating guided meditation practice as needed. Enjoy!
