Sports Nutrition

Improving an athlete’s diet through education can create good eating habits,
maintain an optimal body weight, increased energy level and improved self-esteem. These improvements help all athletes to be faster and more confident.

Nutrition can have a major impact on performance in sports. The focus here will be
on nutritional items—creatine, carbohydrate foods, and fluid replacement drinks. It is extremely difficult to determine the effects of nutritional manipulations on performance in any sports. Variability in opponents, weather, field characteristics, game strategies, individual playing time, injuries, etc makes detection of potentially small but important effects of nutrition very problematic.
