The Athlete's Plate

The Athlete's Plates are a visual tool designed to help sports dietitians working with athletes and athletes themselves adjust their nutrition to variable training loads when following a periodized training and competition plan. The Athlete's Plates were developed by Meyer, NL with UCCS' Sport Nutrition Graduate Program in collaboration with the US Olympic Committee's (USOC) Food and Nutrition Services. The plates were subsequently reviewed by the USOC Sport Dietitians and scientifically tested (validated) against sport nutrition recommendations. The plates are published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism.

When downloading the plates, you agree that they are used for educational purposes only. Permissions to use the plates in written publications or to adjust them to sport-specific or international applications should be directed to Nanna Meyer: nmeyer2@uccs.edu. Thank you!
