Nutrition plays an essential role in exercise and sport because it is important for health, adaptations to physical activity and exercise, weight maintenance, and exercise performance. Nutrition influences nearly every process in the body involved in energy production and recovery from exercise.
To apply the principles of sport nutrition, practitioners must have a good understanding of nutrition and knowledge of the biochemical and physiological processes that occur in cells and tissues and the way those processes are integrated throughout the body.
In this course we provide a scientific basis for sport nutrition that covers the principles, background, and rationale for current nutrition guidelines for athletes.
