Plant-based nutrition for sports performance, recovery and our planet.
Implementing a healthy plant-based approach to training, competing and general well-being will have compelling benefits.
Using an evidence-based approach, guidance is provided on adopting and thriving on a well-balanced plant-based diet. This includes ensuring adequate calories are consumed, protein levels are not unnecessarily exceeded, and key micro-nutrients are met.
The primary interest is using the plant-based approach to improve performance and recovery, however, the benefits can extend to weight loss and improved health and well-being.
Consultations are offered to assist with transitioning to a plant-based diet and fine-tuning to ensure the nutritional requirements meet the sporting goals. For athletes, this can work alongside their existing training plan.
Please note: consultations are not undertaken for pregnant women, young children, and those suffering from medical conditions. Consultations are not provided to diagnose or treat any conditions. Kaitiaki Endurance Sports collaborates with a team of trusted plant-based medical experts to whom you would be referred to.
