Nutrition and the Athlete

This week, we will begin our discussion over nutrition for athletes, supplements, fad diets, and eating disorders as we progress through the world of athletic training and sports medicine.  Many times ,we associate obesity and other disorders with genetics.  While we are all predisposed to many condition through genetics, it is also our environment and choices that have a role as well. 

Some things to think about:

What is nutrition and why should athletes have a nutitional plan?

How does one gain or lose weight safely?

What is the food pyramid?

How many servings of each food group should an athlete consume?  How about the average person?

What are fad diets?  Do they work?

What is the female triad?

We will need our interactive notebooks this week, as we will be taking many notes.
