Nutrition For Young Athletes In Sport

Author(s): Jasemine Anderson*

No matter how old the athlete is, nutrition is crucial for their athletic performance. The consumption of highcarbohydrate meals has been promoted for athletes, however low-carbohydrate diets increase muscle’s ability to burn fat, potentially saving the body’s meagre carbohydrate reserves. But such diets don’t improve the capacity for endurance. It is not yet known if training in carbohydrate-deficient state results in an enhanced capacity for fat oxidation that can aid in the reduction of body fat.
