” The human body, like any machine, needs high quality fuel in order to function at its very best. For athletes, whose bodies may be the most fine-tuned and remarkable machines on the planet, this requirement is especially critical. Without proper nutrition, an entire season of exercise and training can be entirely wasted, and competitions can be lost or won based on how well you fuel the machine that is your body. All athletes, from amateurs to Olympians, have begun to realize that a proper and well-maintained diet can make the difference between results and waste or victory and defeat.

Carbohydrates, protein, and fat are the three macromolecules that provide these calories, and your body utilizes them in different ways dependent on their chemical composition and energetic breakdown. By properly proportioning the amount of calories and nutrients you get from these sources, you can fine-tune your diet in order to help you achieve your athletic goals.”
