What You’ll Hear in Today’s 15-Minute Huddle:
Spitting, sweating and starving a wrestler to make weight is not a healthy nutrition plan.
So on today’s huddle, I talk with Jackie Slomin, Registered Dietitian, who specializes in nutrition for wrestlers.
Jackie and I talk about…
- How Jackie became interested in nutrition and why she specializes in nutrition for wrestlers.
- How she approaches nutrition/making weight for wrestlers and how her approach is different from the traditional approach.
- Jackie shares how important carbs are to their performance on and off the mat.
- Why she doesn’t believe young wrestlers should be cutting weight.
- Her advice/tips for sports moms of a younger wrestler and also high school wrestlers as they navigate nutrition with their wrestlers.
