Nutrition for Athletic Performance

Background

Choosing the right type, amount, and timing of intake of foods, fluids and supplements can help active adults and competitive athletes perform at their best. To help an athlete reach peak performance, dietitians work with athletes to plan for:

  • adequate energy and nutrients from food
  • enough fluids and electrolytes to keep the body hydrated
  • the right balance of nutrients from foods and supplements, if needed.
