Performance nutrition is the use of dietary interventions to impact and improve performance,
training, and recovery abilities. It also focuses on improving body composition and
optimizing changes in muscle mass. Dietary interventions include a range of topics
looking at food type, energy, nutrients, supplements, and fluids to keep the body
performing at peak levels.
