3 Top Nutrition Websites for Athletes

November 11, 2012 | Edith Allen

Must See Nutrition Videos

Staying up-to-date on nutrition information is important for today's athletes. One way you can educate yourself is by referencing useful, informative nutrition websites. When searching for such websites, avoid sites that promote extreme dieting. Also, be cautious: avoid websites that are not run by experts, dietitians, doctors, or sports physicians.

If you are interested in finding the right website for you, here are three to get you started:

Self Nutrition Data

This website (pictured above) features an enormous nutrition database. Athletes will find advice on how to read nutrition labels, discover the healthiest weight loss programs and cook delicious and healthy meals. SelfNutritionData also offers the good, the bad and the surprising news about everyday foods.

MyPlate/Food Pyramid-USDA

The United States Department of Agriculture's MyPlate/Food Pyramid is ideal for everyone who is concerned about their diet. Using the site's Super Tracker tool, athletes can register to track their food consumption, learn about specific foods, set diet goals and manage their weight. The tool can also be used to keep track of physical activity. MyPlate includes not only an American food pyramid, but also Asian and Mediterranean food pyramids.

Nutrient Database-USDA

The USDA's Nutrient Database is perfect for any athlete, providing comprehensive information on all kinds of foods—from calorie and fat counts to nutritional benefits.
