Authors

Abstract

Are you among the many coaches, athletic trainers, and support crews—including parents, partners and siblings—who spend too much time on the road, traveling with your athletes from one sporting event to the next? If so, your food budget is likely tight, your encounters with unhealthy foods are relentless, and your hankerings for comfort foods might often overpower your nutrition knowledge. While you likely know what you should eat, you may struggle to eat well. Regardless of the obstacles, athletes who travel by car and bus need to fuel optimally to be able to perform at their best.
