Eating on the road: Practical nutrition strategies for the traveling athlete.
Athletic Therapy Today
All athletes, from time to time, have to contend with eating meals away from home. Maintaining good nutritional practices while traveling to and from events may affect an athlete’s health and athletic success. Unfortunately, many athletes have poor nutritional knowledge, resulting in inadequate intakes of certain nutrients and poor dietary practices.1,2,3More athletes get nutritional information from athletic trainers and strength and condition-ing coaches than from dieticians. Thus, the purpose of this report is to provide the athletic trainer or therapist with practical suggestions and recommendations for the traveling athlete to meet his or her nutritional needs when on the road.
