How did “Nutrition for Climbers” come about?
While researching climbing nutrition for the International Olympic Committee’s Diploma in Sports Nutrition, I got frustrated to find that there was very little quality, science-backed information for climbers. Where was the good information about how to eat and how to fuel?
There were a few blogs, podcasts, and websites, but most of them had dubious nutrition information. The ones that had good information didn’t really have a comprehensive format where climbers could really understand what to eat, when to eat it, and how to fuel to match their training.
I saw a huge void in the climbing nutrition world, and wanted to fill it by providing climbers, coaches, and trainers with a solid, useful, and science-backed resource.
My teenage son’s climbing team was the inspiration for both the book and the research I’ve conducted on adolescent rock climbers, exploring what they eat and if they are at risk for disordered eating patterns. (My published research can be found here and here).
The climbing community deserves more! “Nutrition for Climbers” was born!
