Sport Performance Speaker Series - SPSS - 181024

This session will outline dietary strategies for athletes to help them match their increased training demands. The focus will look at adjusting carbohydrate, protein and antioxidant rich foods to maximize energy availability and training adaptations to support health and performance. Although this session will focus on food first solutions, discussion will look at situations where a tested sport supplement may be necessary.
