Take charge of your health and fitness and personalize your approach.
Learn how your daily nutrition impacts your health and performance and what changes can be made to maximize, optimize and reach your fitness goals.
Metabolic Efficiency Training (MET) is nutrition for everyone – walkers, runners, swimmers, cyclists, triathletes, elite and professional athletes.
MET is a simple foundational concept and doesn't involve calorie counting per se. You will learn how to put a meal together using the three macronutrients — protein, carbohydrate and fat. It is not a meal plan or a diet. Implementation is based on the foods you currently enjoy. It's a "way of eating," that once learned, becomes easy to implement. Sustainable for a lifetime!
Energy needs are met based on your specific training/lifestyle. Nutrition periodization (macro, meso and micro) is highly specific to the training structure of specific sports, as well as the athlete’s goals.
A Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist (METS) is someone who is proficient, as well as certified, to guide athletes with the proper protocol given their individual goals and needs.
Eat to train.
The macronutrients, carbohydrate and fat, are the main focus when discussing Metabolic Efficiency Training, as they are the primary energy sources. Metabolic Efficiency Training (MET) is the specific nutrition and physical training recommendations to manipulate cellular processes that will improve the body’s ability to utilize nutrients. The main benefit of MET is that it allows the body to use carbohydrate and fat more efficiently to optimize health and performance. This all has a positive effect on training status and health.
As most athletes are familiar with, there are phases to physical training termed "periodization" cycles. Nutrition periodization works in conjunction with the associated macro, meso and micro training model. It is a purposeful nutrition intervention that supports the athletes periodized training and recovery plan. Metabolic efficiency training pairs the athletes physical training cycle with their nutrition periodization plan. This suggests athletes align their daily nutritional needs to their physical training output. Therefore the macronutrient intake fluctuates, in greater or lesser amounts coinciding with higher or lower volume and intensity training.
Improving performance is the goal of many athletes and in endurance sports it is often the overlooked or missing piece in the puzzle. We dig into your unique physiology and optimize your nutrition to fit your individual needs and goals.
