In this Month's Webinar, we will focus on:

  • Understanding how athletes approach their goals and motivation and how it leads them to adopt rigid mindsets and body struggles

  • Identifying signs of whether an athlete may be struggling with disordered eating or an eating disorder

  • Creating a mindset shift to help them be more flexible in their food choices while adopting meal patterns that build strength and endurance

For RDs and health professionals who want to learn how to work with athletes through a non-diet approach.
