Current Issues in Sports Nutrition in Athletes

Tracy R. Ray, MD, Rachel Fowler, MS, RD
Volume: 97 Issue: 9 September, 2004

Abstract:

Annotation: The benefits of sports nutrition evaluation and counseling are important to both elite athletes and active men and women of all ages who want to optimize health and performance. Proper nutrition is essential to staying metabolically healthy during a run, a draining practice, or as a year-round philosophy to perform maximally and to avoid or recover from injury. Major issues related to nutrition in sports include weight control, body composition, carbohydrate loading, hydration, eating disorders, and supplementation, to name a few. General sports nutrition guidelines and sports-specific concerns are reviewed.
