Plant-Based Diets for Athletes: Benefits and challenges for optimal performance with Nancy Clark MS, RD, CSSD
Plant-based diets are in -- but “carbs” are out. Just what do athletes need to know in order to resolve their confusion regarding how to build a plant-based sports diet? This webinar will focus on how plant-based athletes can optimally fuel their muscles, consume enough leucine and plant protein to build and repair muscles, identify the nutritional differences between animal foods and their plant alternative (such as plant milks, faux burgers, vegan protein powders), and figure out how to balance the pros and cons of vegan vs omnivorous diets.

1.0 hour of CPE from the Commission on Dietetic Registration has been applied for.

Sep 30, 2020 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
