Author(s): Hima Bindu Malla, Dr. Meenu Dhingra and Dr. Priti Rishi Lal
Abstract:
Sports Nutrition in India gained momentum after the conduct of 2010 Common Wealth Games. However, studies on Nutritional intake of elite Indian athletes are limited and there is a critical need for enhanced research in this area. This review paper, therefore, summarizes the dietary profile of athletes of all age groups with a specific focus on Indian athletes. The paper highlights the reported calorie consumption pattern, dietary practices, supplement consumption, deficiencies, diseases like metabolic abnormalities, eating disorders, hypertension, FAT/RED-S and discusses relevant status amongst Indian athletes. The paper attempts to form a basis for further research in various areas of Sports Nutrition in India.
