Any athlete of any age or level can benefit from a consultation with a sports nutritionist on how to use their nutrition to help them meet their goals. 

A sports or performance nutritionist educates athletes on what they should eat and drink to optimise their performance. A sports nutritionist may advise an elite sprinter on what to eat before a race to win that gold medal, or help a recreational runner get through training for their first marathon. They may design meal plans to enable a cyclist to lose body fat without compromising power, or recommend specific supplements to a weightlifter looking to gain muscle mass.
