  • The effects of nutrition on exercise metabolism and performance remain an important topic among sports scientists, clinical, and athletic populations. [...] Key Method A search was performed using the MEDLINE and PubMed search engines. The literature search identified 46 studies meeting the relevant inclusion criteria. The Delphi list was used to assess study quality. A meta-analysis and meta-regression were performed where appropriate. Findings indicated that pre-exercise feeding enhanced prolonged (P = .012…Expand Abstract
