Abstract

The accurate measurement of dietary intake in athletes is important to ensure that sports nutrition interventions are evidence-based and have direct relevance to athletes and sporting programs. However, measuring dietary intake in athlete populations, who often have unique requirements and challenges in comparison to non-athletes, poses a range of analytical and methodological challenges for practitioners. Despite clear implications for athlete health and performance, there is a paucity of research in the area. Therefore, the methodological considerations, unique (and shared) challenges with non-athlete populations, current evidence and recommended future directions for effectively measuring dietary intake in athletes will be discussed.
