Nutrition is the process of consuming, absorbing, and using nutrients needed by the body for growth, development, and the maintenance of life, nutrients are chemical substances in foods that nourish the body. Many nutrients can be synthesized in the body. Those that cannot be synthesized in the body called essential nutrients-must be consumed in the diet. They include amino acids (in proteins), certain fatty acids (in fats and oils), minerals, and vitamins. Nine of the 20 amino acids in proteins are essential nutrients. If essential nutrients are not supplied in the quantities required, nutritional deficiency disorders may result. Our trainers can tailor and calculate a specific diet plan to complement your exact training needs and goals.
