Why I Created This Course

As a former Division I power 5 sports dietitian, I spent the first 5 years of my career determined to combine the power of functional medicine with sports nutrition.

I sought to combine the power of real food, root-cause nutrition with emerging sports nutrition practices. I created this course to provide you a holistic look at the very strategies I used and continue to use with athletes of all ages and levels to optimize their performance on and off the field. The content in this course will teach you not just how to look at fueling for performance but how to do so while supporting internal health and wellness.

  • What do you mean by real foods functional performance nutrition?

    Real foods are foods that are in their truest form. Think fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, animal products. Functional foods are foods that provide function outside of their nutritional value. For example, salmon is a protein and fat source, however, it also is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Functional nutrition also encompasses a root-cause model that takes a holistic view to solving nutrition questions.

  • What is the Performance Nutrition Gold PDF that's included?

    Performance Nutrition Gold is Lauren's tried and true nutrition philosophy in a short eBook. The eBook provides you with nutrition fundamentals, a food hierarchy, best to worst foods list, and supplementation guidance. These are the very principles she has used for years in working with all levels of athletes.
