It is the position of the American Dietetic Association, Dietitians of Canada, and the American College of Sports Medicine that physical activity, athletic performance, and recovery from exercise are enhanced by optimal nutrition. These organizations recommend appropriate selection of foods and fluids, timing of intake, and supplement choices for optimal health and exercise performance. This updated position paper couples a rigorous, systematic, evidence-based analysis of nutrition and… Expand

Figures from this paper


Energy and nutrient status of amenorrheic athletes participating in a diet and exercise training intervention program.
The results indicate that some amenorrheic athletes have poor nutritional status due to restricted EIs and poor food selections, and a sport nutrition supplement may improve energy balance and nutritional status in active amenorrHEic women. Expand
Food restriction, performance, psychological state and lipid values in judo athletes.
The data indicated that a 7-day food restriction adversely affects the physiology and psychology of judo athletes and impairs physical performance, possibly due to inadequate carbohydrate and micronutrients. Expand
A critical examination of dietary protein requirements, benefits, and excesses in athletes.
A critical analysis of existing and new data on protein requirements is provided in an attempt to provide some guidance to athletes, trainers, coaches, and sport dietitians on athletes' protein intake. Expand
Nutritional intakes and status of highly trained amenorrheic and eumenorrheic women runners.
It was concluded that the potential contributions of dietary fat, B-carotene, and zinc to inducing changes in menstrual function and the metabolism of certain hormones should be investigated. Expand
American College of Sports Medicine position stand. The female athlete triad.
The female athlete triad (Triad) refers to the interrelationships among energy availability, menstrual function, and bone mineral density, which may have clinical manifestations including eatingExpand
Vitamin and mineral status: effects on physical performance.
This work states that young girls and individuals participating in activities with weight classifications or aesthetic components are prone to nutrient deficiencies because they restrict food intake and specific micronutrient-rich foods. Expand
Exercise, nutrition and immune function.
To maintain immune function, athletes should eat a well-balanced diet sufficient to meet their energy requirements and consume 30-60 g carbohydrate x h(-1) during sustained intensive exercise, which appears to limit the degree of exercise-induced immune depression. Expand

Athletes who have poor diets, especially those restricting energy intakes or eliminating food groups from the diet, should consider supplementing with a multivitamin/mineral supplement. Expand
American College of Sports Medicine roundtable. The physiological and health effects of oral creatine supplementation.
Although Cr supplementation exhibits small but significant physiological and performance changes, the increases in performance are realized during very specific exercise conditions, suggesting that the apparent high expectations for performance enhancement, evident by the extensive use of Cr supplementation, are inordinate.

The process of setting DRI values for the micronutrients (including electrolytes and water) is illustrated, and a summary of instances where physical activity needs were considered when DRIvalues were derived is provided. Expand
