Due to severe bloating, cramping, and diarrhea, Hayden would often skip half of his race nutrition during his Half Ironman races. He could hardly stomach the gels and drinks that would help him sustain his energy and electrolyte levels. After testing with Ixcela and working with an Ixcela Registered Dietitian for just a couple of months, Hayden had a new game plan for race fueling.
Poor athletic performance
Nausea, cramps, and diarrhea
Increased risk of injury
Low energy and motivation
Brain fog and lack of focus
Figuring out the perfect nutrition formula to fuel your best performance is challenging and confusing. Although it is important to ensure you are adequately fueling during races, you may be overlooking the greatest opportunity to maximize your performance—your nutrition habits outside of training and racing.
Find out if your fueling and hydration practices are supporting your performance and recovery.
Ixcela programs use testing to identify the problem. Then, an Ixcela Registered Dietitian explains your data and prioritizes your food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations based on your goals and your willingness to change. No more guesswork!
