This has been a big goal of mine for several years.
Content area for the CSSD exam include:
Energy metabolism and weight management
Macronutrients and micronutrients of active individuals and populations
Training, competition and recovery
Disordered eating and eating disorders
Nutrition for specific populations
With this credential, I will continue to focus on my specialty areas of practice which include;
Fueling endurance athletes (ex.triathletes and runners) before, during and after workouts
Fueling endurance performances (race week/day nutrition)
Helping athletes maintain/create a healthy relationship with food and the body
Fueling vegetarian/plant-strong athletes
Helping endurance athletes keep the body in good health while training for endurance sports
Additionally, I now meet the criteria to apply to be part of the USOC (United States Olympic Committee) sport dietitian registry which is an available roster of pre-screened sport dietitians as resources for National Governing Bodies of Olympic, Paralympic and Pan American Sports. I plan to submit my application in the next few months.
