This book informs readers and athletes of fundamental nutritional guidelines to enhance sport performance, and to reduce the likelihood of malnutrition and vulnerability to nutritional myths and concerns. It contains collected works from Sport and Exercise Studies scholars. The authors thoroughly researched numerous nutrition-related topics and their impact on sport performance and wrote chapters for this book aimed at providing suggestions and improvement strategies for athletes, coaches, health-educators, and other health and movement professionals – as well as any reader interested in improving their dietary choices and physical fitness. Topics discussed in this text include but are not limited to: plant-based diets, hydration and cutting water bloat, eating disorders, intermittent fasting, fat loss diets, ketogenic diets, juice cleanse, supplementation, the impact of social media, and more.

Other than individuals simply wanting to better their diet and sport performance, those who will benefit from reading and applying this work include but are not limited to: (a) physical educators, (b) health educators, (c) coaches, (d) exercise instructors, (e) personal trainers, (f) physical and/or occupational therapists, and (g) nutritionists. This is a practical guide and overview of recommendations and suggestions written by practitioners for practitioners.
