It’s crazy that 2018 is coming to a close, so much has happened and yet so much is to come. It’s a great time of year to reflect on all that you accomplished in the past year and what’s to come in the future. I plan on digging a bit into that tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite resources to use when looking for sports & fitness nutrition information & advice. This is not an exhaustive list, just a few of my favorite resources that I personally use & respect!
Sports & Fitness Nutrition Resources
I get asked all the time where to look for nutrition, health & fitness advice/ideas/recipes so I figured I’d try my best to put some of my favorite resources on here for you guys so you have a list of where to turn to for advice & ideas.
While, I certainly hope I can be a great resource for you, I also want you to have other outlets as well. The more I can guide you on where to turn to for health information, the more comfortable I will be knowing you’re not just surfing the web and going with the next fad diet because someone who has a pretty website and a 6-pack said to do it.
The Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association (CPSDA)
This website & association has great information about collegiate & professional sports. I am in no way affiliated with them at the time of writing this post but I do enjoy and trust the information that they put out. They have conferences, webinars, and resources to help you find what you are looking for.
Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition
Wondering what the latest and greatest research is saying? Stop looking on Instagram (unless it’s the ISSN’s account) and start looking to the ACTUAL research.
Sports Nutrition: A Handbook for Professionals
If you are like me and want something in your hand to hold, this is a great resource, especially if you are looking to become a sports dietitian. It gives you all the basics you need!
There are MANY bro-science blogs out there. While there is definitely more than nutrition information on this website, it offers a ton of helpful and non-bro-sciency-bro-y nutrition information that you can trust.
ps. I also have a ridiculously long study guide I created with the help of Ashley from My Weekly Eats for the CSSD exam, if you’re interested, we might pass it along to you 😉
Sports & Fitness Nutrition Experts
Okay, aside from the plain-ol’ boring science, there are some FABULOUS resources I use and trust on the internet that have great information for those interested in sports & fitness nutrition.
Check out these ladies & gents and see what they have to say about what to eat to fuel exercise &/or performance. In the new year I’m hoping to also be even more of a resource but you can of course check my blog for information regarding real food nutrition for the every day athlete!
