The nutritionist role in sports
The human body must never go into reserves. This would inevitably lead to stop the car or, at worst, cause engine failure, resulting in injury and burning.
This is the concept on which nutrition is based. Applied to the various kinds of sports, it affects its two main components: the duration and power.
Sports nutrition is based on the study and planning of the needs of all nutrients needed by the sportsman to find the best solutions to maximize performance. This ensures that he is never going to miss nutrients, in the various phases: pre, post and during exercise.
Nutritionist Dr. Andrea Del Seppia works with many internationally renowned athletes, in various sports disciplines. He is usually team leader, responsible for the athletes nutritional preparation and study of the body composition. He primes them up for the most important competitions.
