What is a sports nutritionist?

Sports nutrition is the study and practice of nutrition and how it can improve a person’s athletic performance. A sports nutritionist counsels athletes on optimal nutrition for health and sport, proper hydration, training and competition, optimal recovery, weight management, immunity, and supplementation. A general nutritionist counsels their clients on eating healthy and overall wellness but in addition to that, a sports nutritionist can help clients fuel appropriately for activity leading to improved body composition, increased strength and endurance, and reduced injury and illness.

Work With A Sports Nutritionist

What does a sports nutritionist do?

A sports nutritionist’s typical day will likely include counseling athletes on daily nutrition and health recommendations specific to their needs. They may also discuss topics like proper hydration, training recovery, supplementation, improved immunity, altering body composition, or combating disordered eating, depending on a person’s specific needs. Sports nutritionists will also make time to track health trends for their clients, convert scientific evidence into nutritional recommendations, and conduct research on ways to improve the health of the individuals they help.

Improved understanding of overall nutrition

An image of an arrow icon
A sports nutritionist can help people understand the optimal nutrition and health practices for their specific needs and training regimen.

A sports nutritionist will help athletes gain a better understanding of their overall nutrition, improve performance, alter body composition, speed up recovery, and minimize the risk of injury which will improve their overall health and allow them to perform better as athletes.

Injury prevention and decreased muscle soreness

A better understanding of recovery

Here are a few things you should look out for when it comes to finding a sports nutritionist.

An image of an arrow icon
Great dietitians understand that to be experts in a given area of nutrition they need to specialize. Nutrition is such a young science and the best professionals are on the cutting edge.

An image of an arrow icon

That is why we at Top Nutrition Coaching, help clients cut through the noise, find the best professionals that are right for them, and accelerate their path to success. We've helped thousands of clients reach their goals long-term, improved lives, and saved people time and money by doing the work to curate a high-quality network of professionals.

They share tips to improve lifestyle behaviors, not temporary fixes

An image of an arrow icon
You need to find a sports nutritionist that is willing to help you make changes that can improve your health for a lifetime. A great sports nutritionist will give you the tools you need to do well in your life, and they won’t want to keep you in a loop of unhealthy dieting habits or temporary fixes.

Advice that’s specific to you

An image of an arrow icon
Some sports nutritionists may want to cut corners and give you generic advice to save time in their schedules. Try and avoid a sports nutritionist like this that doesn’t give you the one-on-one counseling and nutrition advice that they should. When looking for a quality sports nutritionist, they should track your health, patterns, and needs to help you achieve the best you.

A good listener

An image of an arrow icon
Lastly, look for a nutritionist who will listen to your concerns. If your nutritionist gives you recommendations that just aren’t working for you, they should be open to discussing other options for you. Because they’re experts in optimal nutrition for athletes, you should consider their recommendations and try your best to apply them in your life. But a great sports nutritionist will take your concerns into consideration.
