High-level gymnasts, parents, and their coaches are constantly inundated with information regarding their diet. Unfortunately, most of that content is just plain wrong, aka gymnastics nutrition myths. 

I’ve rounded up the top 10 myths that we’re addressing every day here at the Gymnast Nutritionist®. You’ll notice that many of these have taken up permanent residency in #dietculture. However, these myths become even more dangerous to the high-level gymnast when they prevent her from getting the adequate nutrition she needs

For the sake of time, I’ll focus on the first 5 myths today, and stay tuned for Part 2 coming your way next week!

In this episode, you’ll learn: 

  • Why looking at nutrition, recommendations and research in the context of fueling the high-level gymnast is so important
  • The #1 pervasive nutrition myth in gymnastics
  • Why “just water” might not always be enough
