As a barbell coach, I’ve fielded a lot of questions from novice and intermediate lifters about how to manage their diets as they pursue their lifting goals and they are usually surprised at the questions I ask in response.

Details like their basic dietary habits. Are you keeping track of how much protein they are eating? Looking to lose weight…are you recording your weight on a regular basis? How have you been trying to manage your diet on your own so far? How much sleep are you getting?

Every lifter is different.

They have different goals for what they want to look like, how much weight they eventually want to deadlift, what body fat percentage they want to be and they have different amounts of time they can dedicate to preparing and eating food every week.

If you want progress towards your goals, you will have to dig into the details. It all depends on where you are starting from and what your ultimate goals are. A nutrition consult can help you figure out the right path to those goals.

On a 45min Zoom or phone call, we can go over:

  • Your general background. Lifting history, general diet and how much time you have for recovery.
  • What you are looking to get out of changing or optimizing your nutrition?
  • Review any current numbers you might have around your training schedule or MyFitnessPal logs.
  • Plan macros/caloric intake guidelines around your goals.
  • Discuss practical ways for you to meet those guidelines consistently enough to measure results.
  • Discuss how to modify diet around your workout schedule — heavy and light days for example.
  • How to make adjustments as more data comes in.
