Better total nutrition is the answer for how to get and help athlete clients win – in their sport and in their life.
How can you know if their total nutrition – food, beverages, supplements – is better for their body and performance today? Our Better Nutrition Expert Becca McConville, RD, LD, CSSD, CEDRD. explains how The Better Athlete Nutrition Evaluation makes it easy and efficient for you to get the critical data you need to identify each client’s nutrition wins!
After meeting Becca and learning her story, how she practices, helps athletes win, we knew she was the expert to collaborate with to create The Better Athlete Nutrition Evaluation. This tool is the first and only tool for practitioners, coaches, parents, and athletes to assess their total nutrition to ensure it supports better performance, recovery and future health.
Tell us a little about your practice and your niche:
Once an athlete, always an athlete. I am a former college basketball player and life-long athlete. I provide sports nutrition counseling to countless athletes, including student athletes at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and I previously served as dietitian for the Kansas City Chiefs.
I love the blend of sports performance and sports nutrition. Helping clients define and keep that perfect sweet spot. It is so much more than just what you eat!
As “The RED-S Dietitian,” I use my sports nutrition and sports psychology knowledge to guide athletes to find their SWEET SPOT of optimum performance balanced with optimum nutrition.
Tell us how you came up with the idea for The Better Athlete Nutrition Evaluation:
Every athlete is unique in the right combination of what works better for them. This includes:
- What you eat
- Why you eat
- When you need to eat
- What you want your food to do for you
This complexity is why I wanted to create The Better Athlete Nutrition Evaluation for The Better Nutrition Program. Finding the balance of fueling that works within an athlete’s desired performance outcomes is not an easy feat!
Having The Better Athlete Nutrition Evaluation will help any healthcare practitioners who counsel and treat athlete clients. Using the tool, they can conduct the most thorough nutrition assessment at that very first client appointment to then provide personalized, total, better recommendations – and results.– Becca McConville RD LD CSSD CEDRD
