Nutrition is a critical part of an athlete’s life. The choices you make every day about what and how much to eat are amplified when those choices directly impact sport performance, training, and recovery.
Several organizations in Canada are experts in this field, and provide clear and consistent guidance on fuelling a body for athletic performance:
- Dietitians of Canada
- Coaching Association of Canada (CAC)
- Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM)
Research supports a balanced diet as a legitimate means to top performance. The CCES does not support the use of supplements, but recognizes that athletes often use them.
