Project; The goals of this project are to research current literature and design a case study interrelating sports science and nutrition. To begin the project, you will need to select and identify:
A sport or activity of interest to you
Also, A subject (cannot be yourself)
Lastly, Two specific nutrition parameters(undergraduate) or 4 nutrition parameters (graduate students): Fluid, calories, carbohydrates, protein, etc.
Using these interests, you will do a literature search to lay the background for your paper. You need to submit documentation of 5 resources (undergraduate) or 8 resources (graduate).
1. For the athlete that you choose, you will do a two day dietary recall to obtain the athlete’s current diet and print out the daily food log and reports. Use any online analysis program you want, such as www.myplate.gov, www.loseit.com, or www.myfitnesspal.com. You must provide me with a copy of your recorded food intake when you turn in the assignment. You can refer to the assignment from week one for steps on using the online analysis programs.
2. Compare the athlete’s current dietary intake to the recommended dietary needs based on your current literature search on the sport.
3. What are the athlete’s specific nutrition recommendations based on the main energy system being used and type of sport (strength/power, endurance, ultraendurance, etc)?
If not, what are some specific recommendations that you would make to the athlete to improve their diet to meet their nutritional needs? If they are meeting some or all of the nutritional requirements, what are they and why will they help the athlete?
5. Length of paper should be 3 pages for undergraduate students and 5 pages for graduate students.
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
Sources ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
