Hello! I’m Megan Kuikman. I’m a Registered Dietitian with specialized training in sports nutrition. My goal is to help athletes and active individuals achieve a healthy attitude towards health, training, and food. I empower athletes to fuel properly for training to optimize both health and performance.
My qualifications include:
- Bachelor Degree in Dietetics and Nutrition (University of Western Ontario)
- Master of Science in Human Health and Nutritional Sciences (University of Guelph)
- London Health Sciences Centre Dietetic Internship
- International Olympic Committee Sports Nutrition Diploma
When I’m not working with athletes, I’m doing research. My research looks at relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S) and disordered eating in athletes. RED-S occurs when calorie intake doesn’t cover the cost of calories expended through exercise. This can have negative outcomes on both health and performance. RED-S, disordered eating and underfueling can occur in athletes of any sport, across any age, body size, culture, socioeconomic status, and athletic ability.
Through my virtual practice, I help athletes reach their full potential both physically and mentally. Want to find out more? Contact me using the form below.
