However, if you eat enough protein-rich foods at meals and snacks, you likely do not need a protein supplement. If I do use protein powders what should I look for on the label?

Some sports bars can be a good choice if you need some energy before you train or play a sport, and can also help you repair your muscles after.However, it is not necessary to use sports bars. You can get the energy you need from food before you play a sport.

It is critical for all health/fitness/medical professionals who work with athletes or active individuals to have a fundamental understanding of the adaptive response to exercise and the role that nutrition plays in the acute and chronic response to exercise.

Furthermore, sports nutrition is not the sole purview of exercise physiologists or dietitians. Sports nutrition is its own unique field that requires academic and real-world specialization and training.

The CISSN is recognized by the leaders of applied exercise nutrition (not sports dietetics, but rather sports nutrition). In addition, the CISSN has been coordinated by leading professors, professionals, health educators and researchers. The exam which is often given in concert with ISSN conferences. Our conferences are available for continuing education credits by such associations as the AND, NSCA, ACSM, NASM, ACE, IDEA and others.
