Summary:

Do energy drinks really provide energy? Do athletes truly require products such as Gatorade or Powerade? What about beverages such as chocolate milk — do they contain too much sugar for an athlete? For athletes, whether recreational or competitive, the proper fuel is as vital as training to performance. The right combination of nutrients helps athletes excel at their sports. Proper nutritional intake staves off fatigue, including the underperformance some athletes experience even though they “feel good.” Proper liquid nutrition accomplishes these things within tight time constraints while avoiding gastrointestinal disturbance. By understanding the ingredients of various sports drinks, liquid meal-replacement drinks and energy drinks, registered dietitian nutritionists and other healthcare professionals can recommend appropriate products to their athlete clients based on sport-specific fuel requirements to maximize both training and performance.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program on liquid nutrition for the athlete is to educate registered dietitian nutritionists and other healthcare professionals working with recreational and competitive athletes about how sports drinks, liquid meal-replacement drinks, energy drinks and other beverages can meet an athlete’s fuel and convenience needs, as well as discussing these drinks’ potential pitfalls. After studying the material presented here, you will be able to:
  • List multiple benefits of liquid meal-replacement drinks
  • Define the criteria for consuming sports drinks
  • Describe the difference between a sports drink and an energy drink
