Introduction to Nutrition for Football

This Certificate course content covers sport nutrition in general and how to apply it to your chosen sport – men or women’s field football.

This certificate starts by examining nutrition in general and begins by looking at how the history of nutrition development occurred. This leads us to looking at the development of nutrition for sport training and performance. We entertain the concept of the Food Pyramid (USA) and the Eatwell plate (UK Government) as educational symbols for the community at large. These two similar concepts are used to illustrate the different types of food it is important to consume each day and to act as guidelines to people in general and to the sports performers in particular.

We also look at calories and the metabolic rate so as to understand what we cover as the course content develops. Over the next few lectures we examine nutrients – macro and micro – and this leads us to the study of carbohydrates, protein, fats, minerals and vitamins and the important part each plays in providing energy and support to the body in sport and in life in general.

Sports Nutrition is seen as an important factor in determining optimal sports performance.
