Experienced NYC Sports Nutritionist  -Nutrition Plans for Weight Loss, Weight Maintenance, and Recreational Athletes

Now is a great time to get involved in sports in New York City, as the city is bustling with activity and movement. Working with recreational athletes and clients interested in weight loss and weight maintenance is one of our favorite challenges. New York is home to recreational marathon runners, dancers, aerobics instructors, yoga gurus and more. New trends include everything from Zumba to Cross Fit, and a wave of youth fitness and triathlons. Many people believe that only professional athletes need a sports nutritionist. In fact, anyone who wants to enhance their athletic performance, whether they’re training for a color run, tough mudder, or  first half-marathon post-pregnancy, can benefit from working with a sports nutritionist.


Athletes can expend thousands of calories during training and they need to be replaced in a timely manner to ensure optimal performance during training and competition. Athletes also lose large quantities of water and nutrients through perspiration that also must be replaced to prevent fatigue and muscle cramping. Just as different sports require different training programs, they also require individual nutritional needs. Knowing what to eat prior to and after training and before a competition can sometimes be confusing but is essential to success.


Sports nutrition is defined as “the study and practice of nutrition and diet as it relates to athletic performance.” (


In other words, the way a sumo wrestler approaches nutrition is very different from a long-distance runner, a cyclist, a rock climber, a rugby player, or a boxer. Likewise, recreational athletes will approach nutrition from a very different angle than pro athletes.


Our team of NYC certified nutritionists works with recreational athletes and patients using sport to lose, gain, or maintain weight to assess nutritional needs based on their sport, energy expenditure and an evaluation of their current diet. We then use this information to create an eating plan that provides adequate carbohydrates, proteins and fats for optimal performance. We determine fluid needs and the types of drinks best suited for each athlete’s individual needs and will discuss the use of ergogenic aids and supplements and their impact on performance.


If you’re a recreational athlete and ready to step it up a notch, we’d love to work with you. We work with athletes of all ages, genders, performance goals, and dietary needs (including vegetarian athletes). As a registered dietitians, we can offer you support and guidance to help maximize your potential. You will leave with practical information you can start to use immediately to fuel your body for sport.


We’re excited to be part of your sports journey.

Trusted NYC Sports Nutritionists and Nutrition Counselors for Optimal Sports Performance

Nutrition, when it relates to athletes, becomes a fascinating science of balancing fluids, foods, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As a registered dietitian, it’s a lot of fun to work with sports nutrition. An athlete’s goal is to perform the best so they can give an optimal performance. So, it’s no surprise when we say that the type and amount of food an athlete eats is as important to performance as the training regimen.


As NYC Registered Dietitians and Sports Nutritionists, we will:


  • Provide ongoing education based on your training and competition needs.
  • Calculate your carbohydrate, protein, and fat intake needs, specific to your performance goals, including race-plan nutrition planning.
  • Address pre-training and post-training nutrition requirements, including recovery with adequate nutrition.
  • Address hydration and electrolyte needs.
  • Analyze and discuss vitamin and mineral supplements.
  • Test Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR).
