Practitioners and researchers in the nutrition, exercise, and sport areas perform many types of nutritional assessments on athletes. Nutritional assessment is a key to determining the health and performance efficiency of athletes, professional, collegiate, and recreational. Nutritional Assessment of Athletes, Second Edition is an updated expansion of the first edition. It describes the dietary, anthropometric, physical activity needs, biochemical, and clinical assessment of athletes, with emphasis on the adult. A new chapter has been added on hydration as proper hydration and fluid replacement is a topic of utmost importance to physical performance. A new chapter has also been added on molecular aspects of physical performance and nutritional assessment as research is indicating that nutrigenomics also influences physical performance and nutritional assessment.The book gives detailed descriptions of the methods utilized in collecting assessment data as well as discusses the advantages and limitations of each method. It summarizes evidence-based practical information relating to nutritional assessment of athletes. Nutritional Assessment of Athletes, Second Edition is a valuable resource for nutritionists, dietitians, exercise scientists, coaches, trainers, nurses, physicians, other health care professionals, athletes (professional, collegiate, and recreational), and students, with a strong potential for use in sports nutrition courses.
