About the Event
Plant-based eating has gained popularity throughout the years as it has been associated with a variety of improved health outcomes including decreased cardiovascular risk and disease. Despite these health benefits, is a plant-based diet appropriate to support the needs of an athlete? In this seminar we will discuss the basics of plant-based sports nutrition including calorie density, fueling with carbohydrates, plant-based protein to support muscle growth, and particular nutrients of concern.
