Outside of training the single greatest thing an athlete can do to improve their performance (and their long-term health and happiness) is to learn to cook.
— Elyse Kopecky

Indulgent Nourishment to the rescue...



Elyse specializes in working with athletes of all levels, moms-to-be, and busy working parents on optimal nutrition for lifelong health and happiness. She loves freeing people from counting calories and stressing about the latest diet trends. Elyse proves that real food is meant to be enjoyed and that fat is essential for satiation and a healthy metabolism. From the research that went into writing Run Fast Eat Slow and from working with 4-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan, Elyse has a special understanding of the nutrition needs of runners. From her own personal story she has a passion for working with women who want to eat right to overcome fertility issues. She is available via Skype video or in person in Bend, Oregon. 

NOTE: Due to my busy schedule with writing my 2nd book (before my 2nd baby arrives!), I'm currently taking on new clients on a very limited basis. Time slots are available on Mondays and Wednesdays and are saved for women suffering from athletic amenorrhea or fertility issues.
