Principles of Sports Nutrition

Cory Holly designed The Athlete’s Food Pyramid as an alternative to Canada’s Food Guide, the USDA Food Pyramid and other Pyramids that are clearly designed as a result of influence from corporations with profit in mind (as opposed to science). Any food guide or pyramid that tolerates or promotes the consumption refined, processed, sterilized dead food is a compromise in itself. This is the ultimate RED FLAG and what would normally alert any rational person to the fact that the basic rules of science have been violated. We know we need specific micro- and macronutrients in specific ratios and amounts. That’s the function of food! To sustain the organism! That’s why we eat, to obtain and transfer energy from the environment to our cells with the least amount of trauma, damage and waste as possible.
