We turn a critical eye onto a recent position paper on the nutritional needs of female athletes, focusing specifically on the paper’s recommendations for pre- and post-workout carbohydrate and protein intake. We dive deep into the evidence presented in the paper and discuss whether the recommendations are supported by the cited research.

Expect to Learn:

  • The key recommendations made in the position paper regarding carbohydrate and protein intake for female athletes
  • Whether the evidence cited in the paper supports the specific recommendations made
  • The potential implications of misinterpreting the paper’s recommendations
  • The importance of considering individual factors such as muscle mass, activity level, and goals when making nutrition recommendations
  • Our perspective on the necessity of gender-specific nutrition recommendations based on the available evidence
