BIO:

Katie has lived in hilly and sunny Austin, Texas for 7 years.  A road racer for 4 years, she is aiming to compete in several national races in 2017.  Katie completed her Masters in Public Health at UT in 2015, with a focus in Nutrition Epidemiology.

Katie’s nutrition philosophy:

  • Food is fuel.   It supports everything we do as athletes.  Fueling well can lead to weight loss as it allows your body to adapt and perform at higher levels, resulting in a leaner physique and better body composition.

  • There is no magic bullet. Paleo, sugar-free, low-carb - all diets work short term through a reduction in calories.  For sustainable change (that is, if you truly need to modify body composition to improve performance), look to your relationship with food. 

  • I don’t believe in “bad” or “good” food.  Sometimes, we eat solely for pleasure, eat until we’re overfull, or snack because the food is in front of us.  Learn the difference between head and body hunger, keep your overall health and performance goals in mind (don’t eat JUST pizza and pie), and your best body and performance will follow.

  • Quality, not cleansing.  Focus on high quality foods that will boost your performance rather than restricting your diet in an unsustainable way.  Colorful veggies, fruit, whole grains, lean protein, healthy fats, and a treat here and there.

  • Preparation and a little bit of practice can make fueling well inexpensive, easy, and keep you from boredom. -Use what’s in your pantry. Know how to make healthful meals with what you’ve got.  Avoid bonking.  If you’re busy, meal plan for the week so you can grab food and get on with your life.
