As sport has become more competitive over recent years researchers and trainers have been searching for new and innovative ways of improving performance. Ironically, an area as mundane as what an athlete eats can have profound effects on fitness, health and, ultimately, performance in competition. Sport has also gained widespread acceptance in theraputic management of patients with a disorder associated with nutritional status. In addtion, exercise has been one of the tools for studying the control of matabolism, creating a wealth of scientific information that needs to be placed in the context of sports medicine and science.;This text provides a review of the biochemistry and physiology of eating. Part 1 focuses on the essential elements of diet. Part 2 itemizes some practical aspects of sport's nutrition including weight control (essential for sports with weight categories, and athletes with eating disorders), travelling athletes (where travel either disrupts established feeding patterns or introduces new hazards), environmental aspects of specific aspects of nutrition applicable to categories of sport.
