Sports Nutrition and Hydration
Adequate nutrition is a key component to health, physical fitness and optimal sports performance. Following simple, basic guidelines for the intake of food and liquid can prevent many of the recurrent problems that affect young athletes today.
Elite Sports Medicine’s sports nutrition counseling program includes a comprehensive nutritional assessment and evaluation that meets each athlete’s individual needs and specific sport. Our services identify if there are issues such as a diet lacking in the proper nutrients, excessive use of supplements, and eating disorder concerns.
Sports nutrition counseling can be very beneficial for young athletes who:
- Play sports year-round
- Have had injuries
- Lack stamina
- Experience cramps
- Are required to gain or lose weight for their sport
- Have experienced weight change
- Experience constant headaches
