Do I need to diet if I want to be a competitive climber?

You need to eat like an athlete in order to keep your energy systems full before all training and climbing events and allow the body to recover properly so you can continue to improve performance. Additionally, if you are not at your ideal climbing weight, meaning your best strength to body weight ratio (the heavier you are, the stronger you need to be to climb efficiently), you should strive to find and attain this weight - often lighter is better.

All the aforementioned strategies require proper nutrition planning. Using the dotFIT program, you can design your ideal climbing/sports nutrition plan including perfect athletic menus individualized for you with proper protein requirements, meal timing and complete food plans with the correct mix of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Simply fill in your personal statistics, set your weight/performance goal and create your program. The program will also automatically give you pre and post event eating plans including instructions.
