Sports Nutritional Biochemistry
Everything you eat throughout the day, not simply what you eat or take in as a supplement when you exercise or compete, should be considered as part of your sports nutrition. It is important to remember that knowing when and what to eat each day will have a significant impact on your performance, emotions, sleep, health, and energy levels. Sports nutrition focuses its research on the kind and amount of food and water consumed by athletes. It also addresses the consumption of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements, and natural products like carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids.
