Nutrition Packages

Biomarker Testing

these panels test markers that aren't often checked by a doctor. Many healthcare providers aren't familiar with the optimal ranges for biomarkers for athletes, whereas Inside Tracker is uniquely designed to provide athlete-specific insights.

Metabolic Efficiency Testing & Analysis

A metabolic efficiency test is a type of sub-maximal exercise and nutrition test (not the same as a VO2 max test) that depicts how the body uses internal stores of fat and carbohydrates during exercise. The data from your test can be used to determine what nutrition strategies will best help your health and performance, how you should exercise, and your unique nutrient requirements during training without having to depend on calorie ranges from research.

Subsequent analysis by a professional trained in Metabolic Efficiency Training™, which I provide through my Metabolic Efficiency Test Analysis service, can help you determine the exercise and nutrition strategies that will help you optimize your health and athletic performance.

Metabolic Efficiency Testing and Analysis gives you the information you need to implement a Metabolic Efficiency Training™ plan. Metabolic Efficiency Training can help with:

  • Decrease/eliminate GI distress during exercise
  • Improve body composition by enhancing your ability to burn fat for fuel
  • Improve health markers and reduce the risk of chronic health issues
  • Improve relationship with food

I'm Lindsay

I used to feel worn-out and sluggish during training because my nutrition strategies were all wrong.

Now, as a sports nutritionist, I love helping mountain athletes like you boost your performance and overall health.

Let's work together one-on-one to create a personalized plan with easy meal ideas and smart supplements. Get ready for epic mountain adventures!

Lindsay Christensen Dietitian Nutritionist Colorado

I started to have some health issues about a year and half ago, Lindsay took the time to get to know my lifestyle, we looked at a lot of data, and created a plan to help me feel better. She surfaced issues my medical provider had not and I am in a completely different place than I was last year.

Something I really appreciate about Lindsay is her curiosity and listening skills–she is NOT a one size fits all practitioner.
Nutrition Client

I’ve been on a journey to health for many, many years – she had information I hadn’t yet come across AND her recipes are delicious. She was able to meet me exactly where I was in any given week and provided tender yet direct guidance.

I am so excited to see how my life will transform from here and owe much of this to Lindsay’s advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, I do not take insurance. Health insurance providers do not cover sports nutrition. In addition, I have learned through experience that the restrictions posed by insurance make it impossible for me to serve clients in the way that best supports their health and well-being; therefore, I do not work with insurance. However, you may use an HSA to pay for services and supplements.

Currently, my nutrition coaching business is exclusively telehealth-based, which means I see clients through HIPAA-compliant video conferencing software within a HIPAA-compliant client portal. My practice is currently entirely online (telehealth).

A CNS is a Certified Nutrition Specialist. A CNS is an advanced personalized nutrition practitioner who must have a Masters or doctoral degree (most have a Masters degree in Human Nutrition, like me), complete a 1,000-hour supervised experience internship that achieves a set of clearly defined practice competencies, and pass the CNS exam. CNSs are required to recertify every five years and complete 75 hours of continuing education credits. 

The CNS credential demonstrates that certified individuals have the knowledge and proficiency required for advanced professional nutrition practice. The CNS certification program is administered by the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists℠ (BCNS℠), an independent credentialing organization associated with the American Nutrition Association® (ANA). The ANA is the professional association for the science and practice of personalized nutrition. CNSs are qualified to provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) and advanced personalized nutrition care. 

For more information about the CNS scope of practice, please see the following document

While the credentials RD (Registered Dietitian) and CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist) both signify nutrition expertise, there are some differences between the two. An RD doesn't need to have master's degree (though this has recently changed).

CNSs are not as well-recognized as RDs (yet), but we are a rapidly growing demographic of highly-qualified and educated professional nutrition providers occupying positions in private nutrition practice, hospitals, medical clinics, industry, and research! 

I work with clients in the United States, except the following states (for licensing reasons):

  • Virginia

  • Montana

  • South Dakota

  • Nebraska

  • Iowa

  • Missouri

  • Alabama

  • Delaware

  • Maryland
