Team Nutritionist Assignment
You need to gather information about athletes caloric requirments, the
nutritional information on the foods you will use to feed your team
(calories, food labels/carbs, protein, fat, fiber, water, vitamins,
minerals...), and special needs of those athletes who need to lose
weight/gain weight. How many calories do your athletes need every day? Are
there different requirements for different athletes/position players? What
are the best sources of energy for them? What should they eat after a
workout? What should they eat before contests?
Make a sample meal plan/menu for your athletes that includes breakfast,
lunch, dinner, and snacks.
