The first thing we do with the athlete to prepare a nutritional planning is an anamnesis or interview in which we consider the age, gender, body composition, eating habits, preferences and dislikes of food, etc..
Up next we carry out a 3-day dietary record (2 weekly and 1 holiday) to find out the person’s usual intake and calculate the approximate calories eaten throughout the day.
Then, by means of a record of physical activity, we must know the type of activities performed each day, hours, duration, volume of daily hours, intensities, holidays, etc. to calculate the energy expense per weekly activity that is done.
Next, the sports nutritionist performs the anthropometric protocol whose main objective is to assess the size, shape, proportion and composition of the athlete. Anthropometry is a tool that helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, also used to monitor nutritional, physical activity and surgical interventions. Such follow-ups may be transversal (single measurement) or longitudinal (various measurements over time), for example in athletes or sedentary persons.
Finally, we present a complete report of the body composition in which the results of the skin folds, body perimeters, fat mass, muscle mass and somatocarta (graphical analysis of the physical form) are shown with each reference value established individually for the athlete.
In addition, in our company we offer a nutritional coaching service. Professional coaching helps achieve results by accompanying, facilitating the resources, adequate perspective and the motivation necessary for the person to achieve the goal. It is a personal change that the person has to make from the current situation to reach the desired situation. Through the process of coaching, the person deepens their knowledge, increases their performance and improves their quality of life.
