Delta Aquatics strives to make sure our athletes are taking care of themselves both mentally and physically. This includes making sure that they're doing what they can to maintain good nutrition. One of the building blocks of great training is great nutrition. USA Swimming offers a superb nutrition guide and section on their website that we encourage everyone to view.

The Athlete's Plates are a visual tool designed to help sports dietitians working with athletes and athletes themselves adjust their nutrition to variable training loads when following a periodized training and competition plan. The Athlete's Plates were developed by Meyer, NL with UCCS' Sport Nutrition Graduate Program in collaboration with the US Olympic Committee's (USOC) Food and Nutrition Services. The plates were subsequently reviewed by the USOC Sport Dietitians and scientifically tested (validated) against sport nutrition recommendations. The plates are published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism.
