Dietary Prescription

If this athlete is following the prescribed diet plan, she

will not need to consume supplements


Because she is a female athlete, she may be iron deficient

She will need to be screened for this and if her iron is low,
we will include more high-iron foods in her diet or
consider an iron supplement

If this athlete is unable to eat a high-protein meal or snack

immediately post-workout we may consider a protein
powder shake or drink, because the timing of this protein
intake is very important

Conclusions and Discussion
Did we meet our goals?
Prescribed diet slightly high in:

(would probably want to lower this slightly for her to build strength,
but the athlete should try this diet and see how she personally feels)

(could be good for an athlete who is sweating heavily and losing a

Room for improvement:
