Between an overall more sedentary lifestyle because of quarantine and the stress that surrounds COVID-19, nutrition can sometimes take a backseat – and with it an athlete’s performance, which heavily depends on good nutrition. Join At Your Own Risk during a Facebook Live with Dana Angelo White, MS, RD, ATC, about nutrition during COVID-19 at noon CDT April 24.
The Facebook Live, titled “Three Things You Can Do Now to Optimize Performance Nutrition Amidst COVID-19,” will cover meal and snack timing, how to best recover and easy meal recipes, including a cooking demonstration. There will also be time at the end for a Q&A. ATs should share this Facebook Live with their athletes and members of their communities as a resource.
