Better Than a Gym!

Finding Your Solution

The program binder has information in it that is not in your online program, such as a complete Dietary Analysis of how you’ve been eating.  The online program also contains some information not included in the binder and that is why our clients get both. 
The TriSystem Premier Program Binder

It’s all inside!

The Program – Get Started

Everyone has an idea of what a healthy lifestyle is. What people don’t know are the specifics. What people don’t know for certain are the practical steps on how to get there…until now!!! Our program leads to lifestyle changes that get you to your performance, body composition or wellness goal. There are three phases in effective program development:

1. Assessment
2. Program Development
3. Implementation and Follow-up
This is one trichotomy of TriSystem Nutrition.

Phase 1: Assessment –  Get Started

What to expect at your first nutrition appointment…
This is where you get to know our nutritionist and see if you are comfortable with them and  if nutrition planning is a good fit for you.  You already know that the right nutrition really works.  We just have to make it work for you!  Your nutritionist is just going to ask you a lot of questions, get to know you and your metabolism.  This also includes taking some measurements.

This is accurate Clinical Nutritional Assessment. In order to determine metabolic rates, there must be sound tests to measure current status. This includes measuring physical attributes as well as food intake, past exercise habits, weight history and medical history. This is what we will accomplish next. Our online, in-home and in-office assessments determine your individual statistics.
  • Body composition testing (LBM, SMM, FM)with calipers and tape measures, we determine more specifics than most other tests out there
  • Physical assessment (gender, height, weight, age, medical conditions and medications)
  • Activity evaluation (occupation, exercise habits, sleep pattern)
  • Food intake analysis (calories, ratios of nutrients, meal frequency, known allergies and dislikes, psychological testing)

Once we collect all this information we will know exactly what to do next.  We will tel you our recommendation and you decide how you want to move forward.
No pressure, no sales pitch, no crazy supplements, just your goals and a road-map to get you there.


Phase 2: Program Development Get Started

The second is actual Program Development. This includes determining exactly what a person should eat and how they should exercise in order to move toward optimal physiological function. Once a client’s metabolic rate is determined and compared to others with the same physical profile, his/her program goals are developed.
Our NASN licensed SPORTS NUTRITIONISTS develop a specific, step-by-step plan for you to follow to reach that performance, lean body mass and body fat goal.
  • Body composition goal setting and three-month progression (LBM, SMM, FM,)
  • Physiological recommendations (weight, CHD risk factors, medical condition considerations and medication ramifications)
  • Exercise recommendations (frequency, intensity, duration and type)
  • Food menu development (calories, ratios of nutrients, and meal frequency excluding known allergies and dislikes)
The results are then compiled into a binder. These eight customized sections define the road map to your new lifestyle.
  1. Special Conditions – Addresses specific medical or physical conditions that affect your nutrition, exercise or supplementation recommendations.  Includes a medical clearance form if needed.
  2. Dietary Analysis – A comprehensive critique of how you are currently eating.  Calorie intake is compared to calorie expenditure.  Thirty-four different nutrient values in your  daily food intake are compared with your body’s specific requirements.  
  3. Goals – Your specific present body fat and metabolism are evaluated to show a three- month progression with average expected compliance.  This is a prediction of where your body fat, lean body mass, weight and performance are going to be after following our recommendations. Total caloric expenditure (average daily metabolic rate) are shown here.  Time span between meals and water consumption are also shown.
  4. Menus– Twelve to18 balanced meals developed for you to be eaten in a specific order or randomly.  Our menus are custom tailored for taste and preparation based on your lifestyle.  Food dislikes, likes, intolerances and allergies are all considered in meal development.  Your current eating habits are considered in meals made to gradually move you from where you are to where you need to be.  In any case, these meals are designed to maximize nutrition intake while minimizing fat storage.  
  5. Exercise Routine – Specific workout or activity plan with your goals, time commitment, fitness level, exercise experience and preferences considered.  Targeted intensity, workout order, heart rate sets, reps, tempo, frequency and duration are all discussed here.  
  6. Supplement Intake – There is unbiased, straightforward information on appropriate supplements that help balance your food intake or make food dislikes manageable.  Supplements help make impractical food intake easier.
  7. Exchange List – There are custom food options to replace foods on your menus – a simple way to have variety without losing nutrition.  This is an extensive list of  protein, carbohydrates, fats, fruits, vegetables and dairy foods.  No dislikes, allergens or intolerable foods are listed here.  A food measurement conversion table is also listed here to help you with portions.
  8. Logs and Extras – Appointment Keeper, Free Food List and Daily Log are among others listed in this “extra” section completed by a bibliography of all the references.

Phase 3: Implementation and Follow-up – Get Started

The third is Program Implementation and Follow-up. Program implementation is application of a plan to move that person from where they are to their goal. This includes program manipulation and progress assessment in order to prevent the onset of plateaus and provides changes that influence program adherence.
Your Personal SPORTS NUTRITIONIST adjusts menus, workouts and supplements. He or she has the experience to give you proven hints and suggestions that make all the difference.
  • Body composition update and progression (LBM, FM)
  • Program adherence, customization and adaptation
  • Exercise progression/new routine development (frequency, intensity, duration and type)
  • Food menu adaptation/new menu development (calories, ratios of nutrients, meal frequency, excluding known allergies and dislikes)
  • Related topic discussion – valid new research discussion
