    Sports Dietitian

    Post by Dave Tyno on Tue Jul 13, 2010 4:11 am

    I went to see Sally Garrard yesterday.
    She had been recommended by a few friends.
    After the visit, I can see why.
    She was open and easy to understand.
    Did my skinfolds, sum of 7 sites was 13x.
    Put me smack bang in the "Above Average" category for "normal" - non athlete people.
    Right around the bottom end of the "Poor" category for athletes..........

    Her advice on what to eat is pretty easy to understand - 95% of it, I could have figured out, but it'll be good for me to have the plan there and get reviewed in a few weeks.

    If you're like me and doing the weight yoyo thing, I'd recommend giving it a crack.

    Sounds rad mate. Apart from the skin test, what other stuff did you have to do infront of her? Could you get the info via email?

    Skinfold & jumped on the scale and discuss likes/dislikes, current diet, goal races, training program etc.
    I'd say it would be possible to do via email, it would just take longer.

    She asked me what I don't like and I listed a few things off the top of my head. Later she suggested some options and I had to say oops, sorry, don't like that either.

    After one week, I'm relatively happy with how it's going so far.
    Haven't jumped on the scale yet, I'll wait until Wednesday night.

    First review today.
    After 3 weeks
    5 kgs down.
    5 cm off my gut.
    Skinfolds down from 140.4 to 129.5.
    I'm stoked.

    If you're in Brissie and thinking about it, go see her.

    Good work, Tyno. I needed some inspiration. Just entered the Tour of Bright so I need to drop 6kgs minimum I reckon. Day one today. Thanks.

    This is something I would like to look into but alas no sports dietitians in our area.

    Thanks for the link Dave. I've just made an appointment to see her, although I can't get in until 14 September!

    Yeah, she's busy at QSM. My 3 week review became a 4 week review this time because of the same issue.
    I'll be asking her how busy she gets @ West End next visit.

    2nd review - 4/9/10 (12/7/10)
    Skinfolds - 115.6 (140.4)
    Weight - 93.2 (103.9)
    Waist - Narrow - 94.5 (102.5)

    I warned her you were coming Balri Smile
    She mentioned that it might be easier to get in at QSM, even though she's only there once a week.

    Holy crap mate, that is fantastic! I rememebr watching your weight over a number of BL comps and it went 101-100-101-102-101-100-101 and so on. You must feel pretty awesome.

    Yeah, it's definitely a different thing at the moment.
    Actually being dedicated to training and eating right, which I haven't done for a looong time.
    Post long run this morning I actually snuck under 90, before brekky though. clown
    The biggest challenge will be sticking to it and keeping it off once I'm not training for the marathon.

    keep it up Dave,

    really enjoy reading about your progress.

    Do you find once you start eating healthy food, you actually start craving healthy food? unless you let things go too far between meals, then I seem to still have an panic attack for fat, eg Maccas!!

    I wouldn't say "craving" good food.
    I still want to eat chips and chocolate.
    Being prepared is the key for me.
    If I buy fruit and cereal at the start of the week and take it to work, I have healthy stuff on hand when I get hungry.
    I haven't been as conscientious in the last few weeks as I was originally, so it's important for me to not slip too much.
    Strangley enough, weekends are usually less susceptible to snacking poorly than work days.

    I saw her a couple of weeks ago and got a call yesterday that they'd had a cancellation so I'm going again today. Hopefully it's good news. Jumping on my scales at home a week ago I think I'd lost about 3kgs but I don't feel like I've been as good since then even though I haven't gone far wrong.

    Skinfolds - 109 (needs to be 70)
    Weight - 80 (needs to be 72-75)
    Waist - 93 (needs to be 90)

    I'll try to remember to update this afternoon

    Didn't have time for skinfolds today because we were discussing race nutrition for GCHIM but got the following:

    Weight: 76.7 (was 80)
    Waist (np): 83.7 (was 86.5)
    Waist (bb): 89.5 (was 93.5)

    Pretty happy with all of that. Hopefully it will translate to a faster race this weekend

    I'd assume if you lost 3+ cm off your waist and 3+ kg, your skinfolds would be heading down too Smile
    Good stuff Blair.
    I'm sure you'll be plenty quick enough on the weekend.

    Review # 3 for me and Marathon nutrition plan
    Haven't been as conscientious as I started out.
    So in the last month - 1.5 kg weight loss.
    10 mm off skinfolds.
    May see sub 90 before Xmas! Smile

    wow dave that is awesome, 10kg in 3 months, that is crazy..

    Did she mention any sort of 'ideal' weight for you either in terms of your goals, BMI ( No ) or lean mass/weight?

    I don't have pics.
    I might be able to find some from around June/July.
    Hopefully I'll get some decent photos on Sunday.
    I can notice loss on my face, but not much else, other than my pants/belt being looser.
    Some of my mates who saw me at swimming the other day asked me where my legs went.....

    At my initial visit we figured low 90s was a good goal, haven't set a new goal with Sally yet.
    The last session was more about the Marathon plan.
    At the moment, she's calculating my Lean Body Weight as 79-80 Kg
