Book Description

Clinical Nutrition in Athletic Training is the definitive nutrition textbook for athletic training educational programs, providing athletic trainers with foundational knowledge in clinical-based concepts specific to the field of nutrition.

Editor Dr. Mark Knoblauch and his contributors draw upon nutrition-based requirements outlined in the 2020 Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) educational standards, as well as from the input of practicing athletic trainers and dietitians.

This book gives an overview of the energy systems, macronutrients, and micronutrients that are often intertwined with nutrition. Each chapter includes real-life tips from the field, providing readers with a unique and practical learning experience.

What’s covered in Clinical Nutrition in Athletic Training:
• Supplements and their use in clinical nutrition
• A detailed overview of fluid management
• Chapters specifically devoted to nutrition and disease, as well as eating disorders
• How to interpret food labeling
• An outline written by a dietitian on how to conduct a proper nutrition counseling session
• Tips on discussing nutrition with patients and athletes

Clinical Nutrition in Athletic Training explores how proper nutrition may be able to reduce the incidence of injury in some individuals. With sections focused on direct patient care aspects of nutrition and how nutrition is involved in weight management, this book also examines how nutrition requirements change based on the type and level of physical activity an individual is engaged in.

Clinical Nutrition in Athletic Training is an easy-to-read resource that will equip athletic trainers with the knowledge to care for and educate their patients and athletes on nutrition.
