NSCA’s Guide to Sport and Exercise Nutrition
provides valuable information and guidelines that address the nutrition needs for the broad range of clientele serviced by strength and conditioning professionals, personal trainers, and sport dietitians. This free chapter, “Energy Expenditure and Body Composition,” focuses on two basic nutritional strategies that can affect body composition: hypercaloric diets to gain weight (with an emphasis on lean muscle mass accretion) and hypocaloric diets with the goal of decreasing body weight, particularly body fat. Of the many physical attributes that can be modified, body composition is of paramount importance for most athletes regardless of the sport they participate in or their gender.
