Meteor Nutrition was a gamechanger for me. I entered training for my second Ironman with a lot of confidence regarding my day-to-day and sport nutrition (calories consumed while training). I met with Kelsey with the goal of dialing in my run nutrition, but quickly realized I was in for much more.
Frankly, I had no idea how much I was missing. In a single evaluation Kelsey uncovered several blind spots in my day-to-day eating and I left with several critical tips to optimize both my run fueling and my everyday nutrition.
Then I received the meal plan and I was BLOWN AWAY. This document was a full guidebook for eating during endurance training, tailored to my exact needs. I quickly memorized the recipes (because I was cooking them so much), and the nutrition scorecard allowed me to implement my macro percentages when I fixed some of my old standard recipes.
The difference was night and day. I recovered quicker, felt more alert mentally, and saw faster training adaptations. I’ve learned that dialing in your nutrition is equally as important as dialing in your training volume and I count Meteor Nutrition as a critical part of my training team.
Give Kelsey a call. You won’t regret it.
My name is Nick Deal and I run cross country and track for Creekside High School. I had lots of success during my freshman and sophomore years. I was in line to become one of the top runners in the state of Florida for the next two years. Then junior year hit. During that period, I was repeatedly sick or injured. In cross country season, I was sick once every two months. That may not sound that bad, but it truly messes with your training cycle. I thought it was due to allergies, so I was put on some medicine over track season to ensure that would not happen again. It worked, until Districts rolled around. I got sick again and I didn't even make it out of Districts. I was seeded to score at the State meet. This was a huge disappointment and a low time in my life. After the successes from freshman and sophomore year, I didn't understand why this was happening now. Especially at the most important time in my life, where colleges start recruiting. I knew changes had to be made. So that's when I went to Kelsey. I had no clue what to expect when I went to see her, I just knew that my diet had to change somehow. Before I went to Kelsey, I was eating whenever I felt like it with 3 basic meals a day and a snack here and there. I would come home from school starving, and munching on everything I could until dinner, and then I wouldn't be that hungry for dinner. Kelsey quickly saw the flaw in my diet: I wasn't eating enough. She quickly changed my diet so that I was eating a more well-rounded breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with quality snacks in between all three meals, and a pre-run snack. I felt the impact instantly. I was more energetic and I wouldn't come home hungry from school anymore. I felt like this was going to take me to the next step in the running world. It really did pay off. This past cross country and track season were better than I could've imagined. I finished 3rd at the state meet in cross country and my team won the state championship. It was a surreal moment to see all the hard work pay off. I improved my 5k personal record from 15:59 to 15:35. Most importantly, I was healthy for the whole season. Over track season, I just continued on doing what Kelsey told me to do. She helped me get a solid pre-race meal before meets, which was very tricky to do. At the state meet, I came in 3rd in the 3200m, 5th in the 1600m, and we won the 4x800m relay. We came in 2nd overall as a team. I improved my 3200 time from 9:34 to 9:12 and my 1600m time from 4:29 to 4:17. It was an unbelievable track season and senior year and I'm grateful that Kelsey could help me along the way.
Kelsey gave me sound advice that focused on the small changes I could make that would lead to a big impact in overall fueling and nutrition. I think what stands out in my mind was the way she kept things simple, which made it less intimidating to tackle. As a stand out endurance athlete herself, her recommendations were on point and relevant.
