Optimal Nutrition for Sports Performance

16th June 2023 12:00 BST


Understanding what to eat and when for different types of workouts can be very confusing. And with so much information available (from sources that vary significantly in reliability), it can be tricky to separate fact from fiction.  

Sheona King, MSc Human Nutrition, is here to set the record straight.  

In this webinar, she’ll discuss: 

  • Getting the most out of your sports performance with sensible food choices 
  • Avoiding low energy levels by ensuring adequate fluid intake 
  • Balancing the energy you need for exercise with your weight loss goals  
  • The effect of protein on muscle mass  
  • Whether carb-loading is necessary for long-duration workouts
