ReFuel SPRING 2019 | Page 2

EO REPORT Welcome to another edition of ReFuel! A big thank you to everyone (and there were many!) who provided feedback about ReFuel. We were so excited to hear that it is providing you with valuable information to support your various sporting endeavours and that you recognise the importance of evidence-based sports nutrition information. There was also some terrific feedback on how we can refine the mag, so we will be working towards including further enhancements in 2020! This edition is again jam-packed with a lot of great information and insights to get you through the coming season including some of the risks and considerations in weight and aesthetique based sports such as Taekwondo and Equestrian, great tips for the travelling athlete(s) as well as the role of caffeine strips and protein drinks. We do ask you to remember, as you read through this and any ReFuel edition, that the information is general in nature and aimed to assist your understanding of the role sports nutrition plays in your active lifestyles as well as health. Remember – no two individuals are the same! So, please take the information in this context and seek the assistance of an Accredited Sports Dietitian to ensure your sports nutrition strategies are safe and targeted to your specific needs. Accredited Sports Dietitians are passionate about increasing performance but equally passionate about your health and safety.
