Does this sound like you…
• Train hard, but keep falling short of your goals
• Have trouble losing, gaining, or maintaining weight
• Take longer to recover from exercise than usual
• Have hit a plateau and don’t know why?
The truth is that any of the above could be caused by a number of reasons. Maybe the holiday season, an illness, vacation, or injury are to blame. These are all plausible explanations, but one often overlooked and underrated reason that you are not reaching your full potential could stem from what’s on your plate and in your glass.

And although their training plans are certainly very different, they all have one thing in common: Nutrition plays a crucial role in each of their respective sports.
