TBP 154 :: Neely Quinn and Alyssa Neill on Increasing Energy Levels with Nutrition

The TrainingBeta Podcast: A Climbing Training Podcast

About Neely Quinn and Alyssa Neill In this episode, I had a conversation with my friend and fellow nutrition practitioner, Alyssa Neill, about how to increase your energy levels using food. What you consume and when you consume it can have profound effects on your energy levels, and we’ll discuss the ins and outs of all of them. Even if you don’t “struggle” with energy levels, it’s quite possible that your energy could be even more on-point than it is now, and that can be low hanging fruit in terms of your climbing performance. I’m running a Nutrition for Climbers Program from August 28th through September 25th, all about how to improve your energy levels, lean out, and fuel for performance and recovery, as well as how to deal with some of the emotional eating issues I’ve talked about on this podcast. You can enroll until this Thursday, August 27th, here. Conversation Details The topics we covered in regards to increasing your energy levels: Carb intake Protein intake Meal timing Crag days Caffeine intake Sleep Water consumption   Links My new Nutrition for Climbers program (enrollment ends 8/27/20) Do one-on-one nutrition consulting with me Alyssa Neill Instagram: @nourishment_nutrition Website: www.nourishmentnutrition.com

Episode 35: Alyssa Neill: Nourishment From the Inside Out

The Revelation Project

Alyssa describes herself as a walking paradox so I found myself feeling right at home in our very progressive discussion with a surprise “ending." It also happened to be National Orgasm Day, so, there’s that. You're welcome. Alyssa Neill is a holistic Registered Dietitian, Certified Life Coach, in-training Quantum Alignment Human Design Analyst, and a Nourishment Evangelist, who deeply enjoys exploring all the avenues of nourishment, including & especially (!) those that are culturally taboo. She works with clients one on one in her private practice and hosts groups, intensives, and retreats. Alyssa loves nothing more than creation, expression, learning, and connecting. She climbs, dances, hikes, and adores being anywhere outside. Alyssa is a Human Design G-Center Authority Projector, a Cancer Sun, Pisces Moon, and Capricorn Rising. While she appreciates all of these ways to define who she might be in relation to you, she also loathes when people try to define her. This episode covers: Reclaiming How We Nourish. Nourishment guided by the body's wisdom. Stripping away the externalized authority and conditioning (e.g. "you should look like this," "you must eat less," "be smaller here," "bigger here," "bad foods," "be neat," "chew quieter," "don't fart," "that's inappropriate," "masturbation is a sin," "not ladylike," etc.) and reacquainting ourselves with our Selves and our Senses. Nourishment guided by our Individualized Inner Authority & Senses (via sensation). Less socially acceptable modalities/avenues of nourishment: creative expression, sexuality, sensuality, being int the body, intimacy, etc. Why? Well, great damn question. Our life-soul trajectories are often so externalized. We don't trust ourselves because we have been taught not to. We have been taught to live within the very specific, often very comfortable structure of existence, and while it has worked well for some, for many of us it a) causes dis-ease if we try to ignore our soul-purpose by overriding internal signaling b) leads us to numbing out c) puts our power outside of ourselves (i.e. consumerism, judgment culture, shame-guilt as drivers), which in turn paralyzes us d) causes massive amounts of confusion, pressure, and tension Shownotes: Alyssa was the one who would bring up uncomfortable conversations at the dinner table. She didn’t realize that she was pushing the envelope. Stories that reveal Alyssa’s humanity. Alyssa’s work in the world is to meet Women where they are and begin the conversation about nourishment, and all avenues of nourishment including menstruation, food, emotional health, sexual health, allowing sensation and pleasure. Norms don’t resonate with Alyssa. Western society has conditioned us to be separate from our nourishment. Alyssa remembers being an adolescent and becoming very self-conscious due to development at an early age. We’ve been conditioned to think of sex as predatory vs. a natural part of coming into our sexual essence. An experience with disordered eating became a catalyst for Alyssa to recognize her disconnection from her body and her radiance. Disorder creates disease - because it makes us separate from the truth of who we are. Sensation (sensuality) is a huge part of nourishment. Our bodies are super organisms working synergistically - even our microbiome responds to what we are feeling. When we are in our senses we are not overthinking. Alyssa works with clients to help them reframe the narratives they might have around food, body, and everything. When we are caring for ourselves we glow with radiance.

TBP 151 :: Neely Quinn and Alyssa Neill on Body Image and Disordered Eating in Climbers

The TrainingBeta Podcast: A Climbing Training Podcast

About Neely Quinn and Alyssa Neill In this episode, I had a conversation with my friend and fellow nutrition practitioner, Alyssa Neill, about body image and disordered eating behaviors in climbers. We both have experienced negative body image and have worked with client on body image and disordered eating behaviors. We discuss candidly our own experiences with it all and provide tips on how to balance your diet to get all the nutrients you need while maintaining your optimal, healthy body composition. We talk about common behaviors we see in our clients that sabotage their performance and health goals, and how to improve those behaviors. And we provide mental/emotional tools to help deal with negative body image/body dysmorphia. This discussion was a very vulnerable one for me, and I discuss some personal things I’ve never talked about on the podcast before. Our hope with this episode was multifaceted: 1) we want to bring body image issues more into the open, 2) we want people to learn how to eat in order to avoid common emotional eating pitfalls, and 3) we want people to start re-thinking the “optimal body type” for climbers, and realize that extreme leanness is not the end all be all of climbing hard. It’s also incredibly important to be healthy and happy. Lastly, if you believe you have an eating disorder or are suffering with disordered eating behaviors, we encourage you to seek help. Whether that’s from a therapist, a nutritionist, a doctor, or all three, there are many resources out there for you. I did an interview with Kate Bennett, who is a therapist who specializes in eating disorders among athletes and she sees clients remotely. Alyssa is also currently taking clients remotely. Interview Details Our personal stories Common behaviors we see in clients Common signs and symptoms of disordered eating Mental/emotional tools that have helped me How limiting beliefs about your weight can affect climbing performance Our thoughts on “Intuitive Eating” How a balanced eating routine can help with emotional eating Dilemma of professional climbers How your hormones are affected by disordered eating     About Me (Neely Quinn, ICNT) A little about me that you might not know… After completing my Bachelor’s degree in both Psychology and Zoology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, I completed a 4-year holistic nutrition program called Seven Bowls School of Nutrition, Nourishment, and Healing. I graduated in 2007 as a Certified Integrative Clinical Nutrition Therapist. During my education, I learned about not only nutrition, but Western and Chinese herbs, homeopathy, the psychology of eating, and other alternative practices. I started practicing nutrition with private clients in 2007, and I’ve been working exclusively with climbers since 2015 to help them optimize their energy levels, body composition, climbing performance, and overall well-being. I was heavily involved in the Paleo nutrition community for a few years, and I was recruited to write The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Paleo, which was published in 2012. I’ve led nutrition seminars online, taught at Bauman College (a certificate program for nutrition), and taught several community classes in person. I’ve been a panelist at several conferences and festivals, including the International Climbers’ Festival in 2017-2019, and PaleoFX. I’m also an instructor for the Performance Climbing Coach seminars with Steve Bechtel et al, and I travel around the country with them to teach people about nutrition for climbers. Outside of my nutrition life, I’m the owner of TrainingBeta.com and the host of The TrainingBeta Podcast. I live in Longmont, Colorado with my husband and co-founder of TrainingBeta, Seth, and our dog, Zala. I’ve been sport climbing for 20+ years and I’ve worked with my diet extensively to figure out proper fueling and recovery for optimal climbing performance–a lifelong pursuit.
