Updated and revised to keep pace with the growing changes in the field; the ebook Practical Applications in Sports Nutrition 4th edition (PDF) provides college 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 textbook concludes with a chapter dedicated to helping students discover the pathway to becoming a sports dietitian through experience and education.
