Sacrificing Performance

Sacrificing Performance

Could you be inadvertently knocking your young athlete “Out of Bounds” with improper nutrition?

In the #ConcessionRevolt article, we explored the objective of concession stands in youth sports (to fund athletic programs) and the irony of selling junk food to support something that is supposed to be healthy. We questioned the cost of it all when we consider our children’s overall health and performance. Over a series of articles that I am writing with HERO, we will continue to examine nutrition’s role in youth sports. In this article we’re going to narrow in on how choosing the wrong food can actually sabotage your child’s performance.

About the Author:

I am a Portland, Oregon based Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, writer, wife, & mom of 3 amazing spirited sons. My passion is to inspire hope and to help you and/or your loved ones overcome mental, emotional & behavioral challenges such as anxiety, ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s, and depression – as well as neurological dysfunctions such as sensory processing disorder and the associated health conditions that come with these challenges. In collaboration with your medical team, I support these issues through therapeutic diet and lifestyle programs so that you and your family can live purposeful, happy lives. I work with individuals and families both in-person and remotely, conduct group 21-Day Sugar Detox Classes (because getting control of sugar should be foundational to any healing protocol), and am available for media interviews and content contribution. Lastly, I've been a wrestling mom for 10 years now and have worked tirelessly, mastering an optimal performance and weight management plan for high school athletes. I’m happy to speak to groups and organizations who are interested in the topics I am most passionate about.
