About Wendi Irlbeck

Master of Science, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and Certified Sports Nutritionist

Wendi strongly believes there is a difference between being good and being great, and the underlying factor is our food and nutritional choices!

Wendi is a devoted Christian, registered dietitian, writer, speaker, performance nutritionist, and healthy lifestyle coach. Wendi utilizes evidence-based science to create nutrition programs so athletes can optimize performance, minimize health risks, and enhance recovery from training while focusing on injury prevention. She partners with parents, sports performance staff, special needs, and recreational athletes and organizations to eat and fuel for success. Wendi also works with the general population on healthy eating. In addition to lifestyle coaching, she makes her rounds presenting across the country and even in Canada.

Wendi has presented at various conferences and clinics. To name a few, the University of Regina in Canada, the University of Northwestern in Iowa, Northwestern State Clinic, Michigan State High School Strength and Conditioning Association clinic. Wendi is a former college athlete, with over a decade of experience in the health and fitness industry. Wendi earned both her B.S. and M.S. at the University of Wisconsin-Stout and has spent time learning from several professionals in the field along with an internship at the University of Florida. Wendi operates NWW remotely but is based in Grand Rapids, MI.

She is here to serve you collectively to achieve your next level of self-using an evidence-based approach that is biblical and individualized.  With God all things are possible! The beauty of working with Nutrition with Wendi is joining a community of other like-minded individuals who desire their highest form of self that keeps God as the center. When you partner with Wendi you are joining a community and a culture. You are never alone, it’s never a “me” thing but a “WE” thing!

Eating a well-balanced diet that contains high-quality lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and living an active lifestyle is paramount for physical and mental well-being. Being healthy also means having a healthy relationship with food where all foods fit.  As a health and nutrition professional, I find fulfillment not only in helping athletes perform at their best, but also in providing evidence-based nutrition and fitness recommendations to guide individuals to achieve their best self. Food is so much more than fuel and I believe knowledge through education and counseling empowers individuals to make choices that support the life they want to live.

In a world full of shakes, supplements, and fad diets I’m here to help you learn the tools for lifelong health and success. It’s time to get back to the basics by eating real foods that fuel our bodies and minds. Nutrition with Wendi is not a “me” thing, but a “WE thing”. Together we will help you create an individualized nutrition and fitness plan that meets your needs while creating healthy sustainable habits along the way.

The goal of Nutrition with Wendi is to serve those who aspire to improve and excel in their athletic performance and health. We define success by transforming each individual, athlete and competitor in their respective goals. Nutrition can make a good athlete great or a great athlete good! It is paramount to control your controllables. Nutrition is a controllable.
