Injury Nutrition with the Female Athlete and my experiences so far
How do you adapt a programme, including nutrition, when an athlete has an injury?
Aimee Ellen O’Keeffe is a Performance Nutritionist at Manchester United Women’s team and owner of Committed Nutrition Ltd, her own private nutrition coaching company. Aimee is passionate about the female athlete, particularly breaking down barriers to fuelling and changing attitudes towards carbohydrates. Aimee has carried out a lot of research since starting in her role at Manchester United, analysing areas such as MD-1 carbohydrate intake, injury nutrition, half time carbohydrate intake to name a few.
Her sporting background is Football, CrossFit and more recently Indoor Rowing which helps massively when practising fuelling and recovery strategies which transfer over to her day job.
Fuelling female athletes: how different is it actually?
With the rise in awareness and understanding of female physiology, the topic of fuelling female athletes is more and more popular. But how does this look compared to make athletes and what do we need to consider beyond the menstrual cycle?
