You Are What You Eat

A recent article by Nancy Clark got me to thinking about some of my favorite basketball nutrition articles and resources.

Here's a short list that I've also added to my link section (lower right hand corner of this blog) .

While these links provide good general information, none of it takes the place of having a sports dietitian work with you to optimize your nutrition.

Fueling the Fastbreak- Article by Jen Ketterly, MS, RD

Basketball Nutrition Handout - from the Australian Institute of Sport
Better Nutrition Equals Better Hoops - from the Gatorade Sports Science Institute

A healthy eating and active living Web site for kids ages 9-12 and their families, from the International Food Information Council.

Website for Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutritionists section of the American Dietetic Association. If you want to work with a Registered Dietitian in your area that specializes in sports nutrition go to .

Bon Apetit.
