University of Nevada Sports Nutrition
In this day and age, athletes are becoming bigger, stronger and faster. Sports performance training is becoming the "norm," the type of nutritional education offered could be the competitive edge a student-athlete needs over his/her opponent. At the University of Nevada, nutrition is taken seriously. Conjoined with our strength programs and conditioning programs, our athletes are educated appropriately to reap benefits in their respective sport and for their body type. Through a FOOD FIRST approach (food as our #1 choice for carbs, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals), athletes are taught meal frequency, timing, size, and make up; to ensure each student-athlete is fueled for optimal performance, strength, and recovery.
Education and counseling is offered to Teams and/or Individuals to enhance nutritional knowledge and practices of the following, as it pertains to student-athletes required to compete at a high level.
- Meal Planning
- Meal Frequency
- Meal Timing
- Meal and Snack Composition (food choices, FOOD FIRST)
- Nutritional Needs (specific sports)
- Grocery List
- Pre / Post Activity Nutrition
- Recovery Nutrition
- Eating Out Tips
- Eating On Campus Tips
- Special Needs (food allergies, deficiencies, vegetarian, etc.)
- Weight Gain / Weight Loss Tips
- Female Nutrition Concerns
- Eating Disorder Referrals
- Supplement Evaluation / Recommendation (FOOD FIRST)
No matter how great a strength program, conditioning program or sport coach, without proper nutrition (FOOD- carbs, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals), hydration and recovery; the maximum opportunity for benefit will not be there! The body will continue to break itself down and become weak without ever having a chance to develop, recover, rebuild, and grow.
