In this class, you learned the time you eat relative to working out is just as important as the foods you eat. When should the athlete eat the foods you recommend? How many hours before and after practice? Are there certain types of foods they should eat? What about fluid intake? Be sure to space out your food selections, so they meet the guidelines you learned in class.
Remember, variety and moderation are the keys to a healthy, well-balanced diet so the same foods should not be eaten every day. Make sure your diet changes are different every day.
When your diet plan meets the above objectives, screenshot your analysis or print it to a pdf. You must submit this in the assignment area. Also, I need you to write a report, so my coaches will know what changes you made to their athlete’s diet. Use Word to write your report. It should include the following:
List the meal or snack name and the foods to be eaten–give a specific time. Do not give a relative time (i.e. do not say “1-2 hours before practice”; instead, say “at 6:30am.”) Be sure to space out your food selections, so they meet the guidelines you learned in class.
Time when the athlete is working out
What foods did you add to their diet?
What foods did you remove from their diet?
What did you do about their fluid intake?
These responses should be well-developed, graduate-level short answer essays, and provide evidence (from the reports themselves, classroom resources, or other appropriate materials). Single sentences or bulleted lists are not appropriate. Finally, submit your Word file and 4 diet analysis reports (3 individual daily (diary) reports and 1 summary (trends) report) in the Assignment area under Assignment 3.
