Welcome To The Skating Dietitian

March 12, 2018  |  Elyse Metelka, MS, RD, CDN


Hello and welcome to “The Skating Dietitian” a blog by me Elyse Metelka, MS, RD, CDN, a Registered Dietitian as well as the owner and founder of Elyse Metelka Nutrition.


Why “The Skating Dietitian”?


As a lifelong figure skater, nutrition has been crucial for my physical performance as an athlete. I have been an athlete all my life and have been figure skating since the age of 12. I still continue to skate to this day and love it just as much as the first time I stepped out on the ice. Throughout my figure skating career, I have taught skating and have competed in numerous competitions including twice at the national level on the University of Delaware’s Collegiate Figure Skating Team. You can find pictures of me skating throughout the years below.


Figure skating has taught me many valuable lessons including self-confidence, determination, fearlessness, perseverance, and so many more that I use in my life and career today. I always know that if I stumble and fall in life I CAN and WILL get back up and succeed. Without figure skating, I wouldn’t embody these amazing qualities and without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. So that’s why I decided to call this blog “The Skating Dietitian”.


What Will This  Blog Cover?


All things related to nutrition, health, food, and fitness will be covered in this blog. There will be special emphasis on my practice specialties of sports nutrition, eating disorders, weight management, vegetarian nutrition, and medical nutrition therapy for disease.

I hope you enjoy the posts to come! Stay tuned for more!
