An extensive review of the research focused on nutritional issues facing the aging athlete. The chapter examines the physiological changes that affect the macro- and micronutrient needs of athletes over 35 years of age; the energy needs of these athletes, the specific macronutrient (carbohydrate, fat and protein) and micronutrient (vitamin, mineral) needs; as well as the fluid needs of aging athletes.
