Our registered dietitians help high performing athletes have a positive relationship with food, weight and body image. 

Not taking in enough fuel for performance can have drastic effects on an athlete’s body, including causing injuries to heal slowly, hormone & endocrine dysfunction, bone remodeling to cease and digestive issues to escalate.

As sports dietitians trained in eating disorders, the Mind Body Endurance Performance Nutrition team understands the intersection of nutrition and eating disorders. Athletes have unique challenges associated with mealtime dynamics, weight, body composition and exercise. We support competitive and casual athletes at all levels by using practical, realistic and evidence-based nutrition recommendations. 

Similar to sport, we value the team and believe in a collaborative approach working closely with MBE mental health providers and other treatment team members. Mind Body Endurance dietitians are also available for presentations and consultations for teams and organizations.
