We have all heard of the saying “you are what you eat.” From youth sports to professional sports, we are educating ourselves on how we should fuel our body so we are at peak performance while playing our sport. The famous Olympic track and field athlete Bill Toomey stated, “Nutrition is also a valuable component that can help athletes both protect themselves and improve performance.”
As an athlete, you can understand that having a community means support, guidance, and comfort. It is one of the best parts of competing. HowUdish has many features that allow you to feel as though you have this type of support. You are able to chat with other “Dishers”, share your favorite dishes and restaurants, match with like-minded Dishers, subscribe to see dish choices from top professional athletes and much more.
Easy To Use
HowUdish is an immersive app that tackles the frustrations of understanding what the health benefits (or lack thereof) of what you’re putting into your body all while creating a community around you. You can follow along with nutritional plans of professional athletes with the likes of Brandon Marshall and Elena Della Donne or you can carve a path of your own. When you log in, you’re prompted to select which type of food lifestyle you’d like to align yourself with. If you’re gluten-free, looking for a low-fat diet, high carbs or just a well-balanced diet, HowUdish provides all options for you.
Why It’s Important
It is very critical that athletes intake the number of calories that they expend on a daily basis. This is something that you do not to guess at. In order for any athlete to perform at their peak, they need to have a proper nutritional diet. If not it can be damaging to the body and mind.
Below is part of a Nursing School Rankings infographic that dives into the number of athlete diets, with some details on unusual dietary quirks that some Olympic athletes have had.

When doing research in the recruiting process for my daughter I came across the LRT Sports website. I was immediately intrigued as this was another dimension of the recruiting process that many people don't even consider. My daughter and I could "short list" schools based on the education she was looking for, as well as the opportunity to play her sport. LRT Sports not only gave us pertinent information into the recruiting process with different interviews of coaches and players, it also gave us insight into current and/or former players' opinions on the coach of that school in her sport. We could use this information to re-prioritize my daughters list of schools based on this feedback. I have many friends that are, or will be, going through this process shortly and I highly recommend using LRT Sports as part of anyone's recruiting process.
The college process presents a myriad of challenges. Factor in athletics and it becomes even more daunting. Now, add the fact that you have zero experience with sports. What is a the mother of a college bound student-athlete to do? LRT Sports has truly lived up to its promise. It has kept "the college recruiting process honest and easy by providing first hand information about coaches, schools and the recruiting process." Their interviews with current students, coaches, and professional athletes have provided realistic guidance. I am much more informed because of LRT Sports! The coach ratings are the most helpful. LRT Sports interviews allow us to hear from students as to how the adults are impacting not only their athletic experience but also how they are helping to shape their adult self.
The C.A.L.C. was thrilled to have Keirsten Sires come and speak to us on multiple topics relevant to high school athletics today, including recruiting. Keirsten reached all of our students and left them with great strategies that will not only help on the fields, courts, and mats, but also in the game of recruiting. She was a true professional and delivered a wonderful message.
Now that the recruiting process and the related stress is over, I wanted to thank you for your guidance. You did so much more than we had expected. Once you started the process by matching the best academic schools first, not the best sport programs, I knew you were the one. The way you laid out a timeline of contacting coaches, visits, and camps completely took any guesswork out of the plan for us. All of the student athletes that you put us in touch with gave us a look from the inside, and made us more comfortable knowing what was coming. Finally, using your website as a resource for knowing what to expect from different coaches based on former recruit reviews gave my son confidence before our meetings. There is no way we could have figured this out on our own, you really put us in a great position when decision time came.
I think hearing from other athletes is very beneficial. To be able to learn from people’s mistakes, and to be able to have access to those voices is really helpful; especially voices that have been there and done that. It’s very important for people to have access to information that could benefit them, and in this case there are many voices that can help the next wave of athletes.
If you have something that’s going to spell [the recruiting process] out for you… it’s so valuable. I think what everyone at LRT Sports is doing to spread the word and help advocate and educate athletes on the recruitment process is incredible.
Without question would have used LRT Sports. It would have probably been one of the most valuable tools that I could have had. If you want to know what these coaches are really like then I think this is the best tool out there. I’m really glad you are allowing recruits to have a resource like this moving forward.
