College Football Players Quizzed On Nutrition

College football players need muscular strength and physical stamina to perform on the gridiron. That requires hard training and balanced nutritional support. A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition suggests there’s room for improvement in nutrition knowledge and what these students consume.
 
Eighty-eight Division III players completed food frequency surveys which also included a nutrition quiz. More than 50% of these subjects reported consuming grains, meats and dairy on a daily bases with less than 50% consuming fruits and vegetables every day. Linemen tended to consume high amounts of sodium, potassium and fat, including saturated fat. On the other hand, their consumption of carbohydrates, fiber and essential fats was low. The average nutrition quiz score was 55.2%.
