 Sports Nutrition Advisor

Home Study Course



The Sports Nutrition Advisor course will give you the knowledge to become an asset for athletes, trainers, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts. No form of training is complete without sound nutrition. This is why there are those who seek information about: metabolism; role of foods in exercise and sports; which foods contain the different classifications of nutrients and minerals; benefit differences between raw and cooked foods; how nutrition combined with exercise can prevent certain diseases; energy expenditure; body fat; dangers of being overweight or obese with health problems associated with each; how to identify eating disorders; ergogenic aids; how body composition affects performance; importance of hydration; behavior modification; how to assist a dietitian; and more.  Completing the AFTA Sports Nutrition Advisor course does not make you eligible to function as a licensed dietitian.
