The Mental Edge: How To Boost Your Performance Through Mindset Mastery

Elite athletes understand the importance of nutrition for optimal performance. Food, drink, vitamins, and supplements energize the body to train and compete.

Of course, some food sources are better than others. If you feed the body junk, your body won’t perform efficiently or optimally. For example, I wouldn’t recommend an athlete to eat a bucket of fried chicken and drink several litres of Coke before a competition for obvious reasons.

That is why many athletes enlist sports nutritionists’ services to understand better what to feed themselves, what to avoid eating, and how to optimize fuel use. A nutritionist often starts this process with a nutritional needs assessment.
