Holoway, F. E., & Spriet, L. L. (11, August 2011). Sport-specific nutrition: Practical strategies
for team sports. Journal of Sports Sciences, Volume 29. Retrieved from

In this article, the authors explain the importance of adding a proper nutritional program in
team sports. The authors' stance is that kids playing these sports need the right fuel for their
bodies in order to be able to perform at their highest potential. Also, getting kids away from
the caffeine and supplements is a way of keeping them healthier as well. Through these
processes and steps, the athletes become able to perform at their maximum levels.

This article helps to answer my action question, as it offers a solution through using special
programs to keep kids in sports healthier. It is important as it also includes a way that the
team as a whole can benefit from these nutritional habits.

Couture, S., Lamarche, B., Morissette, E., Provencher, V., Valois, P., Goulet, C., & Drapeau, V.
(2015). Evaluation of Sports Nutrition Knowledge and Recommendations Among High
School Coaches. International Journal Of Sport Nutrition & Exercise Metabolism, 25(4),

This article is written to test the knowledge of nutrition in coaches. The coach is
responsible for having this knowledge and through questionnaires the authors tested this
knowledge. The article also again looks to see if the coaches were offering the idea of
supplements on top of nutrition, which thankfully, was said to be rare.

This article helps to answer the question of cause and effect because coaches can have a
great influence on what athletes know about nutrition. They are the mentors so it is
important that they know what to suggest to their athletes

Webber, K., Stoess, A. I., Forsythe, H., Kurzynske, J., Vaught, J. A., & Adams, B. (2015). Diet
Quality of Collegiate Athletes. College Student Journal, 49(2), 251-256.

This article researches the diet quality of collegiate athletes. Because of the fact that these
athletes demand so much of their bodies in action, the authors investigated just how good
their diets are. This article finds that athletes need more education on their diets as they
were high in sodium. This increase in sodium has a drastic effect on the body, and was said
to slow down the performance of the athletes as well.

This article helps to answer the question of value because it shows why nutrition is so
important in the lives of collegiate athletes. It indicates that not only the type of nutrition is
important, but also the necessity of the quality of it.

Prokop,N.W., Duncan, L.R., & Andersen, R.E (2015). Do Canadian collegiate hockey players
accurately perceive body composition changes after unmonitored training and diet?.
Applied Physiology, Nutrition & Metabolism, 40(10), 1056-1060.

This article is a research that the authors conducted with hockey players to find out if they
knew how a 3 month period in their season affected their bodies. The authors conducted
questionnaires with the athletes in order to have a better understanding of what the athletes
did or did not know. They broke down the questions into body parts. With this they found
out what every part of the body would lose in mass or gain with no nutritional plan nor a
set work out routine. A key component was perceived vs. actual change. This means the
difference between what the athletes thought was going on with their bodies, and what was
actually happening. This shows a big problem in athletes' knowledge of nutrition.

This source helps to answer my question of value because it highlights the lack of nutrition
and also the lack of knowledge that the athletes have of their bodies and how important it is

to maintain it. Also, the article highlights the problems that come along with not knowing
these things, and how it can affect the athlete's season.

Burkhart, S. J., & Pelly, F. E. (2014). Beyond sports nutrition: the diverse role of dietitians at
the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. Journal Of Human Nutrition & Dietetics, 27(6),

In this article, the authors talk about the importance of dietitians within sports. These
dietitians provide a sound and helpful nutritional program that help athletes stay fueled
while they play their sports. In these Commonwealth Games, dietitians again provided
questionnaires that assessed what regions and athletes paid close attention to their
nutritional habits, and these dietitians came up with how their roles in providing these plans
is helpful and effective.

This article helps to answer my question of action. This is because the role of these
dietitians can drastically improve the health of athletes, and provides a possible solution as
to how to get athletes to better understand how important nutrition is in sports.

Jinling, W., & Zhonghui, H. (2015). The Nutrition Improvement Effects Of Frucus Cannabis
Protein Powder On Athletes During Weight Control Process. Carpathian Journal Of
Food Science & Technology, 7(3), 102-108.

In this article, the authors describe how the improvement of the frucus cannabis protein
powder can help to increase the nutritional values of athletes in sports that require them to
control weight. Like in wrestling for instance, making weight in order to be able to compete
is crucial. This advancement makes doing this more healthy and easier which is crucial in
the life of the athlete.

I would say that this article answers my value question because it is so important that
athletes, especially the ones that compete in these sports in which making weight is
important, know that they have healthy options for them to make their weight.

Alderton, S., & Chambers, L. (2015). What's new in sports nutrition?. Nutrition Bulletin, 40(2),

In this article, the author talks about nutrition in sports, and what some of the latest trends
are, and how they benefit in bone health and overall health of the athlete. A key part of
their findings was the benefits of nutrition as it pertains to injury prevention. With the
nutritional value of an athletes' diet promoting positive bone health, the athlete becomes
stronger and can stay away from injury.

I would say that this article answers my question of essence and existence because it talks
about what the newest findings on sports nutrition are, which help to describe what exactly
sports nutrition is, and also goes on to explain all of the benefits that go along with a
proper nutritional plan.
