Meet Katie Schimmelpfenning RD, LD

Thank you for visiting! I am a dietitian specializing in sports nutrition for swimmers. I have seen firsthand the impact of under-fueling and nutrition misinformation on swimmers’ performance.
That is why I created this blog. Our goal with Eat Swim Win is to provide evidence-based and easy-to-understand sports nutrition tips to improve performance, optimize recovery, and prevent injury!
And, most importantly, keep it fun! I am a firm believer that a happy swimmer is a fast swimmer.
