Athletes often adjust their dietary routines to enhance sport performance, but problems can arise when athletes turn for guidance to coaches who may not be trained in the field of nutrition, or who, themselves, are poor examples when it comes to healthy eating habits. There are many myths regarding nutrition that are spread throughout the world of sport, as one must consider proper dietary information without being influenced by the latest fad or hottest gimmick. In this article, the authors offer sport and physical educators some nutritional guidance that is based on fact and can be shared with student athletes. The authors offer ideas on how to reexamine current nutritional guidelines and gives coaches and physical educators tips they can pass on when counseling athletes about nutrition and sport performance.
