Kashif’s largest meal of the day is late in the evening (8-10 PM).
Twice a week he prepares homemade dinners at his dorm. The other nights he eats frozen convenience foods, microwave dinners, fast food, or cold sandwiches.
His friends have mentioned to him that his eating habits may affect his health, but Kashif has explained that he is an athlete and needs to eat the way he does to have the energy to compete at a college level.
He has seen no change in his weight over the past few months, either up or down, not even with weight training activities.
He has not been to the doctor in a year, but as a student athlete is required to see the doctor once every year, so he will schedule an appointment in the upcoming weeks in preparation for lacrosse season.
Kashif wants to be the best athlete possible and his friends’ concerns have made him think about his eating habits. He has visited you at the student health center where you are volunteering with the nutrition office as part of your nutrition class.
Criteria to address in your post (Please answer in paragraph format):
Please give Kashif five suggestions about sports nutrition and his current eating habits. Make sure to cite using course resources or other reliable sources. MAKE SURE THESE ARE LOGICAL, RELEVANT AND PRACTICAL for our student. Can he really not eat fast food? Could he feasibly stop using a microwave?
Explain the impact that each suggestion could have on his performance and/or health.
Describe the health impacts Kashif could experience if he chooses NOT to take your advice and continues with his current nutrition/training program.
Note: Please clearly NUMBER your nutrition-related tips in your response.
