Methodology for Assessing Female Collegiate Athletes' Total Dietary Intake and Intake of Food Provided by a University Athletic Department: A Pilot Study
Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
To identify an effective method to assess female athletes’ dietary intake and consumption of foods provided by a university athletic department. Due to athletes’ high energy and nutrient needs and busy schedules, universities offer foods via refueling stations, training tables, team meals, and snacks. Existing validated tools assess usual dietary intake; however, it is a challenge to determine which foods the university athletic department provided. Accurately measuring intake of these foods is necessary to assess their impact on athletes’ overall diets. Female athletes (n=4) completed 2-4 Automated Self-Administered 24-hour recalls (ASA24) and online surveys to identify university-provided foods.
