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.


Jackie is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist on a mission to make sure people feel confident and happy about their food and bodies by providing a science-driven approach to nutrition coaching. Specializing in:

Sports Nutrition for Wrestler
Weight Management & Meal Planning
Medical Nutrition Therapy

Jackie has a FREE facebook community for parents and coaches of wrestlers who want to learn how to make weight WITHOUT starving, sweating or spitting @ https://www.facebook.com/JackieSlomin/
