How Our Platform Works for You:
Fueled + Focused believes in using a science-based approach to fueling the body for optimal training and racing goals. Backed by our lead sports nutritionist, Cristina Caldwell, a USAT Level 2 Triathlon Coach, RRCA Running Coach, and Exercise Physiologist, this platform provides users with a customized meal plan and community like no other.
Track Your Information
When you sign up for membership, you will input your personal statistics, so our system can create the best meal plan for you. These statistics include age, weight, height, gender, sport, sport schedule, and if you would like to maintain, lose, or gain weight. You can always change these statistics as your season progresses.
Once you input your statistics, the system will calculate your ideal total, meal, and snack calories, as well as total grams of carbohydrate, protein, and fat. If you change seasons or start training more, we recommend you that you update "Your Stats" page, which will then adjust your recommendations.
Planning at Your Fingertips
Based on the recommendations given to you from our scientific calculator, our system will then match you with recipes that fit your customized criteria. If you update your athletic statistics, your recommendations and recipes will change as well, which makes it easy to create weekly nutrition and training plans.
The Science Behind Fueled + Focused
Our system uses the The Mifflin St. Jeor Equation, which has a 95% confidence level. This means we take your age, height, weight, gender, and activity level and match it to your goals to customize a plan that determines your optimal intake for you to reach your objectives. By taking the guesswork out of meal planning and what should or should not be consumed, you are able to focus on what matters most—results.
Energy used at rest (REE) + Physical Activity (PA) + the thermic effect of food (TEF). In total, the TEE is how much energy or calories your body needs to sustain itself, given its metabolic requirements from basic human functions like breathing, daily living activities, and breaking down food for energy.
This is the total amount of energy your body uses if you were to be resting in bed all day. This is similar to your basal metabolic rate (BMR), but research shows it is around 10% higher. The younger and more muscular, the higher your REE.
This includes activities related to daily living, such as showering, cooking, doing laundry, in addition to exercise performed. The more active your day and the more often you exercise, the higher this activity factor will be. If you are a high level athlete training 20+ hours per week your intake might need to be higher than the formula says. In this case, it is best to reach out to Fueled and Focused for guidance.

This is the energy it takes to break down the food that you consume. The thermic effect of food will vary depending on which food source you are eating (carbohydrates, fats, or protein). It actually is harder for your body to break down protein, so it requires a slightly higher TEF.
Giving Back to Veterans
We believe in giving back to the community. There are a multitude of great charities, but one close to our heart is Team RWB (Team Red White and Blue). Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. We are happy to be part of this great organization! Please visit www.teamrwb.org and consider becoming a member or donating. Proceeds from Fueled and Focused will be donated to help to keep enriching veterans lives.
