No two plans are the same! In addition to customizing plans based on test results, our dietitians often make tweaks for our athletes such as:
As a professional triathlete, four-time Ironman Champion, and seven-time 70.3 Champion, Sarah Piampiano would retain 20 pounds of fluid after racing an Ironman event and need four to six weeks to feel fully recovered. She also experienced chronic bloating, cramping, constipation, and inflammation.
Two months before her third Ironman, Rylee came to Ixcela hoping to improve her post-race recovery time—and to reduce her frequent Porta-Potty stops while training and racing.
Hayden, a pediatric medical resident in his 30s, struggled with daily stomach issues for years. He experienced GI discomfort while training for an Ironman 70.3 and for days following intense training and racing.
Ixcela has helped pro athletes as well as age groupers to push their bodies and achieve their best. Ixcela has also worked with Olympians and professional athletes in the NFL, NHL, and MLB, as well as pros who race Ironman, triathlon, ultramarathons, marathoners, and Tour de France events.

At Ixcela, protocols are based on testing results—everyone does NOT get the same plan. Your Ixcela performance dietitian will factor in your Ixcela data, preferences, symptoms, goals, training regimen, and what you have the capacity to do. Our goal is to help you feel better by getting creative on nutrition and lifestyle shifts that feel realistic for you.
Ixcela has helped many people alleviate symptoms of bloating, cramping, constipation, diarrhea, and nausea. While we may not be able to alleviate all symptoms, on average, athletes who come to Ixcela experience 72% fewer instances of GI issues after working with one of our registered dietitians for 90 days.
