SPORTS NUTRITION

Nutritional goals for athletes are often very specific and require careful management.
  • The food we eat impacts on our strength, training, performance and recovery.
  • Meals eaten before and after exercise are the most important in sports nutrition.
  • The proportions of protein and carbohydrates that you require vary depending on the intensity and type of sport.
  • Whether it is providing a specific, individualized diet plan or receiving expert advice and guidance, our Dietitians and Nutritionists can help!

Nutritional goals for athletes are often very specific and require careful management and monitoring of dietary patterns and food intake to ensure that the food consumption and timing are appropriate. Many athletes also use dietary supplementation to help meet their increased nutritional needs and performance goals.

Meals eaten before and after exercise are the most important in sports nutrition but you should really be careful with everything that you put into your body. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy that powers your exercise regime and protein is required to aid muscle growth and repair. After exercising you need to replace the carbohydrates you have lost and you need to ensure proper muscle recovery by including protein in your post-training meal.

Consulting with a Dietitian or nutritionist to discuss your nutritional intake is extremely important because they will offer you guidance, and a meal plan that works with the schedule, time restraints, and increased nutritional needs that you require. For example, it would be good to know if supplementation is necessary or if food consumption is enough to meet your requirements.

WOMEN'S HEALTH & PREGNANCY

Healthy Eating during Pregnancy! Are you pregnant or have you recently given birth?
  • Healthy eating during pregnancy is extremely important to ensure your health and the health of your baby are optimal.
  • Without professional guidance, getting all your nutrients on a daily basis can be very challenging.
  • Nutrition after giving birth is also essential for your health and the health of your newborn baby!
  • Whether it is providing a specific, individualized diet plan or receiving expert advice and guidance, our Dietitians and Nutritionists can help!
During pregnancy, your health is essential for ensuring that your baby grows and develops the way that he/she should. There are many aspects of your diet that need to be considered such as making sure that you are consuming adequate macro- and micro- nutrients. Many of these nutritional requirements increase during pregnancy, however it is not necessary to completely “eat for two”.

The right amount of weight gain is also very important while pregnant. With the help of a Dietitian or Nutritionist, you can rest assured that your weight will be monitored and advice given accordingly. During the post-natal period, once your baby has already been born, your nutrition is still important to ensure that your weight returns to normal ranges, that you consume adequate nutrients and that your baby still receives the right amount of nutrients.

Some of the specific foods to consider include:

  • Grains: a rich source of fiber and energy
  • Fruit and vegetables: loaded with vitamins and minerals and antioxidants. Many also contain folic acid and iron.
  • Meats, chicken, fish, nuts, legumes: these provide your body with protein, iron and folic acid
  • Dairy/dairy alternatives: these provide your body with calcium and vitamin D.

You may also experience taste aversions and unique cravings. Speak to our Dietitians and Nutritionists about this further to ensure that you make good dietary choices.

BABIES & CHILD NUTRITION

Are you unsure about when or what to feed your infant, child or picky eater?
  • Do you have concerns about your infant or child’s growth and weight gain/loss?
  • During infancy and childhood, good nutrition is essential for growth and development.
  • A well-balanced diet for a young child can help them grow appropriately, excel in school, have adequate energy, and much more.
  • Whether it is providing a specific, individualized diet plan or receiving expert advice and guidance, our Dietitians and Nutritionists can help!

Infancy is defined at the period from birth up to 1 year of age. During this time, it is extremely important for the nutritional intake to be sufficient. It has been shown with various scientific studies that depending on an infant/child’s growth and feeding patterns at a young age, it can influence their risk of various metabolic diseases such as obesity, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. At 6 months of age is when complementary feeding can begin. This may require extra advice and guidance from an expert to ensure your baby is fed appropriately and that there is decreased risk for developing allergies or even picky eating.

Parents should be aware that their child’s feeding style from a young age can closely influence their growth and cognitive development later in life. Specific nutrients (macro- and micro-) play specific roles in the body and having a balanced diet from early on in life will not only affect weight but also overall health, digestive health, cognitive function, energy levels, and many more.

Eating a variety of foods is the best way to ensure an adequate intake of nutrients for children. Each infant or child is different and some may experience feeding difficulties, require more nutrient-dense foods or guidance related to specific disease conditions. Our Dietitians are experts in assisting parents with these situations.

I have had one of the best experiences with Beyond Nutrition. Ms. Nadia and Ms. Kathy are very professional and always helpful. Due to my work ethic I am not very good with following a schedule, but they are very accommodating and we were able to work out a schedule that would fit around my life, and not for my life to change (significantly) around the eating and exercise regimen. I would really recommend them to anyone who is looking to get healthy or just to get a good perspective on what they can change to be a better self :DP.S. Thanks to the nurse who recommended I get my cholesterol and lipids checked, never would have known, maybe until too late.read more

            More Details On Nutrition Consultation At Beyond Nutrition

            As underlined by our name, nutrition is core to our philosophy of a healthier life and we take great pride in the successes we have booked with our clients. Our nutritional consultations are uniquely tailored to maximize impact. Particularly in the cases of diabetes we believe that a well-designed diet plan is essential. During the consultation, our Dietitian or nutritionist will do a full and thorough nutrition assessment covering the following aspects:

            • Concerns you may have and whether known allergies or intolerances are present
            • Current food intake and dietary habits
            • Medical history and medications or supplements that are currently used
            • Exercise regime you are following (if following) and other lifestyle aspects
            • Body composition analysis that will indicate a variety of measures including body fat mass, lean muscle mass, total body water, weight, body mass index (BMI), minerals, available protein for muscle building and more
            • The assessment is often complemented with blood and / or DNA tests to get a better view of your physical makeup

            Based on the assessment our Dietitian or nutritionist will provide advice on your diet and together we will set realistic and achievable goals (e.g. goals for performance, health, weight). A uniquely customized nutrition plan will be emailed to you to follow for two weeks. After this period a follow-up consultation is recommended to measure results and make alterations where needed.

            The body composition analysis can be done by manually taken measurements (weight, circumferences, and fat caliper measurements) or by using the most advanced bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). The InBody test results provide comprehensive information about total body weight, body fat mass, lean muscle mass, total body water, protein and mineral levels, BMI, basal metabolic rate and individual fitness score.
