What is Sports Nutrition?
Sports nutrition is the study and practice of nutrition and diet as it relates to athletic performance. It is concerned with the type and quantity of fluid and food taken by an athlete, and deals with nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, supplements and organic substances such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Although an important part of many sports training regimens, it is most commonly considered in strength sports (such as weight lifting and bodybuilding) and endurance sports (for example cycling, running, swimming). I am a sports nutrition specialist certified through the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) and it is a requirement for the recomp coaches to pass the ISSN exam.
The ISSN is the only non-profit academic society dedicated to promoting the science and application of evidence-based sports nutrition and supplementation.
The ISSN is recognized as the only not-for-profit academic-based society dedicated to sports nutrition and growing the science of applied nutrition. The ISSN conferences, tutorials, lectures and courses have been recognized by Recomp and many worldwide Universities and associations offering the latest, cutting edge and non-biased information about the science and application of sports nutrition and supplements. The ISSN – Why Go Anywhere Else?!
What is a Sports Nutritionist Specialist?
A Sports Nutrition Specialist (SNS) is certified by the ISSN. A sports nutrition professional counsels people who compete in a sport or want to perform better in the gym. They start by first evaluate their client’s diet, training program and goals. They then prescribe energy balanced, nutrient dense diets that ensure maximum training output and achieves a body composition suited to the sport or client’s goals. They should know how to evaluate the scientific merit of articles about exercise and nutrition products so they can separate marketing hype from scientifically-based training and nutritional practices.
