What’s up with nutritional guidelines for athletes these days? The advice that our national organisations and regional centres continue to push? I’ve got to say, they just don’t seem to have changed much since I was having that stuff fed to me 15 years ago!
This is certainly a polarising topic. A quick look on any social media post in recent times will indicate just how ‘knickers in a knot’ some people will get about nutrition. Athletes, in particular, seem to get extra riled up about it all.
The reason I make these comments is to counter with the notion that I’m going to try very hard to address a few pertinent points associated with food, nutrition and athletes in as balanced and diplomatic manner as I can.
