SPORTS NUTRITION: TRANSLATING THE SCIENCE INTO COUNSELING TIPS
How often have you heard your clients say, "I know what I should eat, I just don't do it. I have my training down to a science, but nutrition is my missing link."
Are these athletes confused by the plethora of sports nutrition information available on the Internet? Do they know whom to believe? Are they too focused on losing weight that their diet has gone awry? As a dietitian, do you have the latest knowledge needed to teach your sports-active clients how to eat for top performance?
This workshop offers sports nutrition science as well as counseling tips to help you effectively combat trendy myths and misconceptions. The presentation will boost your confidence when counseling both fitness exercisers and competitive athletes. Topics will include how to:
Effectively balance carbohydrates and protein
Discuss pros and cons of a high fat / ketogenic sports diet
Fuel properly before, during and after exercise
Build a winning sports diet (even one that's eaten on the run)
Choose commercial sports foods that are worth the money
Lose weight and maintain energy to train
By choosing the live workshop, you'll be able to ask your questions and leave with answers.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
Offer guidance to casual exercisers and competitive athletes regarding the best balance of carbs, protein and fat.
Teach athletes the science of fueling before, during and after exercise.
Explain the costs and benefits of a ketogenic diet.
Create with your clients a winning food plan that will enhance their athletic performance.
