Revised and updated to keep pace with the growing changes in the field, the Fourth Edition of Practical Applications in Sports Nutrition provides students and practitioners with the latest sports nutrition information and dietary practices, and prepares them to assist athletes and fitness enthusiasts in achieving their personal performance goals.

The text concludes with a chapter dedicated to helping readers discover the pathway to becoming a sports dietitian through education and experience.
