Nutrition Plans

At the Irish Cycling Academy we believe in bringing you the best expertise possible to help you gain an advantage in your cycling.

For this reason we have asked nutritionist Sean Kilroy BSc. MSc to join us at the academy.

Most cyclists find that their training is going well but admit that if their nutrition was better they could perform better.

There are a couple of reasons why this is true:

  • Bodyweight makes a difference when climbing
  • Proper nutrition = more energy = more power
  • Timing of eating is crucial for recovery and energy release

Some of the most common questions we get asked by our members are:

  • What should I eat before training or events?
  • How can I lose weight and still have energy for my cycling?
  • What should I eat during my ride?
  • How soon after a workout should I eat and what are the best foods to eat for recovery?
  • How many calories should I be eating each day?
  • How much protein do I need?

Sean doesn’t just answer these questions for you but can design a personalised plan based on your body type, training and lifestyle.
