Performance Nutrition During Menopause

We work with a diverse range of athletes, from junior development, to everyday active, to elite. One group that we ADORE are our women that come to us wanting to adapt, improve and thrive – now that the kids have grown older or left home, it is time for them. One topic that often gets overlooked in nutrition and performance nutrition is menopause. It is also a topic that many shy away from asking about. So, here is a whole chunk of your questions rolled into one podcast with an incredible practitioner – Mel. Mel Matheson is a dual accredited sports dietitian and exercise physiologist with a passion for helping women to recognise the importance of energy availability, menstrual cycles and how to make peace with food. As a non-diet dietitian, Mel inspires others to liberate themselves from weight cycling, restrictive eating or burnout to a place of body acceptance and adequate fuelling – A personal journey she has also endured. Mel is based in Dubbo and runs her own business Nutricise – She can also be found on social media under @Nutricise. Enjoy and please head through to our website if you would like to explore what support may look like for you, with a free assessment from our Dietitians 😊
