Hi, I’m Aicacia – just another girl who loves to climb rocks, eat food, and see new places. I used to be a girl with a full-time job who enjoyed climbing in her spare time, but I took the plunge in 2014 and quit my full-time job as a Registered Dietitian. I really wanted to combine my love of nutrition and climbing
…and so ClimbHealthy was born.
I have had a passion for nutrition ever since I was in high school, but I didn’t discover rock climbing until my sophomore year in college. It took some time for me to embrace the sport, but once I did, I was absolutely hooked. With the help of some friends, I was able to progress pretty quickly in my first two years of climbing, but then I plateaued and struggled with some serious fear of failure. After a year of negative self-talk and avoiding my projects, I decided to cut my pity party short and hop back on the send train. It took some time and serious dedication, but I finally got my strength back and began training.
When it comes to training, I’ve always wanted to know what my diet should look like. How many carbs should I have? When should I eat? Should my diet look the same on rest days?
I searched for answers, but never found anything specifically made for rock climbing. So, I did a ton of research and organized all of my findings in an eBook that you can find here.
And in case you haven’t noticed, I love to write, so I’ll be posting articles on a variety of topics on my blog. I hope you enjoy the site! 🙂
