An Introduction to Sports Nutrition
We begin this introductory programme by asking what fuels the energy system. There is a universal acceptance that diet and nutrition impacts exercise and performance. Although it may seem obvious,some athletes and fitness enthusiasts are not aware of what impact food can have on training and performance.

A well planned eating strategy will have a positive effect on competition, fitness, recovery, reducing the risk of illness, and most importantly, helping you achieve optimal results. In this lesson a comprehensive explanation of sports nutrition will be provided, and we will be getting to the bottom of all of yourquestions.

Your Exercise Fuel
Carbohydrates are the primary fuels which keeps us going – an important aspect of exercise! However,most people might agree that it can be quite confusing when trying to apply them to your own sports diet. In this lesson we will be looking at the importance of carbohydrates as a primary source of fuel forexercise. We will look at the current recommendations for different groups of athletes and discuss their carbohydrate intake.

You will learn in practical terms how to manipulate carbohydrate intake before exercise (“carb loading”), during exercise, and after exercise; and how you can improve performance by optimising energy stores in the body. In this lesson we will also look at the various factors which can influence carbohydrate utilisation during exercise.

The Fight Against Disease
So now you are beginning to understand what Sports Nutrition is, we finally need to grasp what exactly it incorporates? What impact does physical activity and nutrition have on health? In this lesson you wil learn about the recommendations on the type and amount of physical activity needed to improve and maintain health. We will also discuss the health consequences of an inactive lifestyle.

We will bring this introductory course to a conclusion by looking at specific conditions including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and obesity in detail. By the end of the lesson you will be very clear on what you can do to prevent and improve these condition with good nutrition and physical activity.
