What others are saying about our free online symposium...

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“As a healthcare provider with a strong interest in sports nutrition but no formal education in that area, this symposium was exactly what I needed! It gave me interesting and actionable information while also helping to connect me with experts in the field. I will continue to attend these virtual events!”

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“Eat2Win’s Sports Nutrition Symposium was a fantastic event. The 9 speakers gave us information that was unique, but overlapped. It was a great learning experience that will help many athletic trainers regardless of the setting. The topics range from sleep, to supplements to specific micronutrients. Some of the information was a great refresher, while giving me a different perspective on each topic that will help me and my athletes.”

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“The Sports Nutrition Symposium 1.0 was a great tool to learn! As a new dietitian, I like to take all of the opportunities that I can to learn and grow as an RD. I'm looking forward to the next symposium.”

Monday January 18th @12pm CST
The Athlete's Gut - Overcoming Stomach Distress
Patrick Wilson, PhD, RD

Gut disturbances are highly prevalent during exercise and competition. This webinar will review some of the most common causes of gut symptoms in athletes as well as what can be done to prevent/manage them. 


Monday January 18th @7pm CST
Dietary and Nutritional Supplementation to Enhance the Effects of Resistance Training

Jeffrey Stout, PhD, CSCS, FISSN
Appropriately designed resistance training (RT) programs for men, women, young and old, will experience significant muscle hypertrophy and strength. However, the adaptation rate can vary depending on the training status, gender, age, and nutrition. This lecture will review how nutrition and selected dietary supplements can maximize the outcomes of RT.

Tuesday January 19th @12pm CST
Nutrition for the Injured Athlete

Roberta Anding, MS, RD/LD, CDE, CSSD, FAND
The session will compare and contrast starvation versus stress and the alteration of fuel sources. The nutritional requirements during injury vary with the degree of the insult. This presentation will review the nutritional needs for common sports injuries.

Tuesday January 19th @7pm CST
Nutritional Needs for the Female Athlete

Dina Griffin, MS, RDN, CSSD
The physiological effects of the menstrual cycle, perimenopause and postmenopause warrant unique nutrition considerations for the female athlete. While the body of research is relatively new and small in comparison to male athletes, it is important to become aware of these considerations to potentially better serve and guide our female athletes across the lifespan.

Wednesday January 20th @12pm CST
Making Weight by the Best Means Necessary

Derek Wilcox, PhD
Water manipulation has been a part of weight class sports since they began. We will discuss the ins and outs of how to manipulate hydration levels in the best and worst ways and the risks involved in the process.

Wednesday January 20th @7pm CST
Nutrition Periodization for Football

Pratik Patel, MS, RD, CSCS, CSSD
This presentation will cover the nutrition needs of American football over a full calendar year including specific needs and aims during the offseason and competition time points. 

Thursday January 21st @12pm CST
Mental Health and Well-Being Among Student Athlete

Karen Egan, PhD
Prioritizing mental health and well-being is an essential part of supporting student-athletes in their academic, athletic, and personal goals. Being able to recognize potential signs of concern, talk to student-athletes about these concerns, make referrals for care, and reduce stigma are all key skills in supporting mental health and well-being.

Thursday January 21st @7pm CST
Ketogenic Diets

Jacob Mey, PhD, RD
Dr. Mey will discuss the emerging roles of ketones in health and disease. He will overview the evidence on potential applications for the ketogenic diet in sports performance - where it may help and where it may hurt. Finally, he will provide his perspective on critical dietary components present in most research-grade ketogenic diets that are missing in the general public's version of the ketogenic diet.

Friday January 22nd @12pm CST
Use of Omega 3 for Brain Health and Concussion

Michael Lewis, MD, MPH, MBA, FACPM, FACN
While not a drug or “cure,” omega-3 fatty acids are a powerful nutritional tool. They are perhaps the single most important supplement that should be recommended for patients to maintain brain health as we age as well as those younger athletes at risk of head injury.

Friday January 22st @7pm CST
Why Athletes Can't Gain Weight and How to Fix It

Tavis Piattoly, MS, RD, LDN
The webinar will discuss the challenges athletes face when it comes to gaining weight due to excessive calorie expenditure along with a lack of sufficient calorie intake. It will also provide nutrition strategies to help athletes overcome the challenges by learning a list of low volume/high calorie foods.

What others are saying about our symposium...

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“The Sports Nutrition Symposium provided excellent information from reputable presenters on unique topics and insights into new research geared toward optimization of performance and fueling strategies. This was a valuable resource for professionals and students involved in sports medicine beyond just Dietitians, like physicians and athletic trainers, as well as, scientists participating in research for performance and nutrition.

I found the information to be applicable to the populations we work with and greatly expanded on relevant topics in sports nutrition. For example, increasing my understanding of applying nutrition periodization strategies and recommendations for enhancing sleep quality for improved athletic performance. I highly recommend signing up for the webinars provided by mysportsd.com and I look forward to the next symposium.”

What others are saying about our free online symposium...

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“The 2020 Sports Nutrition Symposium was so well put together and had some really great topics and speakers! Very relevant to the world of sports nutrition right now. It was also great to see a ton of other professions other than Dietitians attending and asking questions! There was so much good material shared this week, and I learned a good amount of new information.

This symposium is such a great option for dietitians looking to get more into sports nutrition and learning more about current relevant topics. It’s also great for other health care professionals just looking to expand their knowledge in nutrition. There was such a large variety of topics that there was really something for everyone. I am a dietitian just getting into sports nutrition and Tavis Piatoly gave some great information and advice to take with me moving forward in my career! I will definitely be attending the next one symposium! ”

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“Good variety of topics (which were relevant to the time), and presenters were extensively informative on respective topics. Convenient as well.”

My Sports Dietitian: Eat 2 Win

“Outstanding format with a wealth of information from informative and educated professionals within the nutritional profession.”
