Sports Nutrition Section
There's nothing like the subject of nutrition to stir debate. It seems like the experts change their minds almost daily about what we should and shouldn't eat. In truth, scientific nutrition hasn't changed much at all in the last fifteen years.
It's the constant and never-ending emergence of fad diets and weight loss programs that adds to the confusion. It appears everyone has differing opinions...
Fortunately, scientific sports nutrition is a little less contested. There are some very well-researched, well-practised dietary strategies that have been used by athletes for many years. They are applicable to most sports. In fact, they are more than applicable - they are a pre-requisite to peak performance.
