Title: Sports Nutrition Project
For your project, you must choose one of the following scenarios as if you were an actual
professional "Sports Nutritionist". Your project is to answer the scenario with a detailed and specific
report as to how you would handle the situation provided. Your project must be at least 5 pages in
length (double-spaced) not counting the title page, reference page, meal plans, and the pages for the
"All Daily Reports" (Saved as a PDF and attach separately in the assignment area). (Your project may be
10 -15 pages in length if you include all the pages.) Be creative with your presentation! Add some color
or some pictures. Think out of the box. It does not have to be in standard APA report format. Be sure to
include all the information. Scenario #3
Athletes attempt to lose weight for various reasons. As a "Sports Nutritionist" what types of
nutritional advice would you give an athlete with the following situation? A WNBA (WOMENS) basketball
player who is 6’0" and weighs 200 lbs and has had a baby 1 year ago. Missing last season and an injury
have put her behind on her comeback and a few pounds overweight. To achieve a good BMI and body
mass composition she needs to loose 15 – 20 pounds of body fat at a healthy pace.
Your report/project should include:
1) At least 5 keys to losing weight properly while also gaining/maintaining muscle mass. Be sure you
support your selection. Remember this is a nutrition class, stay away from discussing detailed training
techniques – summarize. Ask yourself, "Why is this important for losing weight properly?"
2) Provide at least 3 recommendations for decreasing body fat which must be nutrition related but can
incorporate strength training to maintain muscle mass.Remember this is a nutrition class, stay away from
discussing detailed training techniques – summarize. Be sure you support your selection. Ask yourself,
"Why is this important for decreasing body fat?"
3) A 3-day sample meal plan for this player. Use the diet analysis program to develop and evaluate this
plan. Use the information above to complete the profile and determine the daily nutrient intake. Your
meal plan must provide at least 100% of the macronutrient (calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrate) and
food group recommendations. Also, it must provide the appropriate amount of calories from
carbohydrate and fat. Include your meal plans and the "All Daily Reports" with your report/project.
4) A short one paragraph summary.
