Sports Nutrition Guide
Sports nutrition encompasses a lot of different areas, from staying hydrated, feeding athletes while traveling, optimal eating before, during and after exercise, to the controversial area of supplements. We have created a huge resource covering all these areas, plus more. Whether you are an aspiring or elite athlete, a parent or coach, this site has a large collection of sports nutrition advice, and best of all - it's for free! Please have a good look around. To stay up to date, sign up to the sports nutrition newsletter. We also have sections on Nutrition for Health and Weight Loss.
- Weight Control — for many athletes, the greatest nutritional concern is body weight, whether making weight in the short term, or losing or gaining a few extra pounds.
- Macronutrients — each of the major food nutrients play a role in the diet of athletes.
- Hydration — it is important to get enough fluids before competition and training, but also it is important to re-hydrate after exercise to aid recovery.
- Supplementation — for the extra edge, you may need to supplement your diet, but it is not a simple decision.
