Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past 30 years, sport nutrition has emerged not only as a key component of training and competition for athletes, but also as a genuine scientific discipline. Research has traditionally focused on specific aspects of nutrition before, during and after exercise. However, in reality, for most competitive athletes adequate and appropriate nutritional intake is a constant consideration. Carbohydrate intake is important before and during exercise to support the metabolic demands of exercise, but also after exercise to recover and prepare for subsequent training sessions. Protein intake is important at all times to support muscle repair and hypertrophy. In contrast with carbohydrate and protein, most athletes focus on minimising fat intake so as to maintain low levels of body fat. Fluid intake is important to maintain hydration and reduce the potential risk of exertional heat illness. Consuming a well-balanced diet helps athletes to obtain adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals, which play a key role in maintaining metabolism and other general cellular functions. Some other nutritional compounds have the potential to enhance athletic performance. The purpose of this special issue is to provide a summary of contemporary issues and invite contributions that describe new insights into managing nutrition for athletes.
