Wheat Foods and ACSM Presents: Carbohydrates, Performance & Weight Loss: Is Low the Way to Go or the Way to Bonk?
Low carbohydrate diets are far from new. The Paleolithic Diet, Atkins Diet, the Dukan Diet, and to a certain extent, the gluten-free craze all limit carbohydrates either intentionally or because the recommended choices limit carbohydrate intake by default. Most consumers gravitate toward low carb diets to manage body weight, while others choose gluten-free or follow a Paleolithic diet because they believe it's healthier. Even endurance athletes including triathletes, marathoners, ultra-runners are turning to low carbohydrate diets believing that this will enhance performance by increasing fat burning efficiency.

ACSM and ENC Present: Nutritional Myths and Practices of the Elite Athlete: Implications for Active, Non-Elite Performance
Competitive athletes have come to understand the benefits of good nutrition to athletic performance. With the dramatic growth in the number of Sports RDs, and the increased number of teams in both the collegiate and professional ranks employing nutrition professionals, today's athlete is much more versed on the importance of diet to success on the field than were athletes of a generation ago. This is not to say, however, that athletes don't or can't fall prey to exotic claims for nutritional products, diets, and supplements that promise enhanced performance, improved physique, or other physical benefits. Through scientific data and anecdotal information culled from real life examples of elite athletes' dietary practices, this session will provide information on diets, foods, and supplements that have been proven to enhance physical performance, as well as nutritional practices of dubious efficacy. Information on how the non-elite, physically active person can use diet to their advantage will also be discussed.
