Sports Nutrition for Youth Athletes

by Jacques Delorme

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Who taught you about sports nutrition when you were young? Likely your parents fed you every day and you ate what they thought you needed. Determining what to eat when faced with extremely busy lives and not having the time to plan can be a daunting task. The easy way out is sometimes necessary ... but not always healthy. Nutrition has been ranked by some experts as making up as much as 60% of the scale in importance towards getting real results from training with exercise making up 30% and rest and recovery making up the final 10%. With that high an importance placed on it, it makes sense to learn what you can to maximize its effects. This book covers all of the required areas of nutrition you need to have in order to eat healthy and make a real difference in your training as an athlete. Carbohydrates, protein, fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and fruits and vegetables are all important parts of a complete nutrition plan and this book covers them all and more.

About the author
My name is Jacques Delorme and I have been around sports for over 25 years as an official, player, and coach. I am a certified coach in baseball, basketball, football, volleyball and wrestling and I have coaches all age groups from 3 yr old all the way up to masters (over 35). As a part of my coaching, I didn't always stress proper nutrition. Back when I started playing and then coaching, there was very little emphasis on eating properly. When my son started taking his training more seriously, I gathered up to date information on sports nutrition to get him to make the most of his efforts. As a result, I have created this site to communicate with others interested in learning more about the training, nutrition and motivation of youth athletes. Advertising by companies like GNC, Popeye’s and MuscleTech has introduced our younger generation to what adult athletes have been doing for years – supplementing their diet to improve performance and recovery. Unfortunately, a lot of our teenage athletes are not doing it correctly. They are not asking the right questions, getting bad advice from friends instead of professionals or simply just trying what they think will work. The desire to be the next great athlete has parents sometimes reliving their childhood through their kids. Knowing supplements can help, parents allow it to be taken by their kids, but do not always monitor what is being done. I have personally seen a number of athletes with rather strange habits: Taking a Red Bull and Advil or tylenol before matches or practice – one to give the energy, the other to dull pain. A 17 yr old male taking a product which contains an amino acid designed to boost testosterone levels. The boost in testosterone is needed for older aging males trying to train but is pointless for a teenage male with already high levels.There are a shocking number of athletes using energy drinks like Monster, AMP, etc in large quantities to get the “rush” they feel thinking it isn't harming them. The warning on the can should tell them otherwise. My websites are the result of several months of research and training. Updates are being made as feedback comes in and research studies are released. I will continue to study and learn as much about youth training as I can find. The sitess will contain the most up to date information I can find. I have done presentations for sports groups, community groups as well as schools. “Teach and guide our youth before the lessons they learn by trial and error alone render them incapable of reaching their true potential.”
