When it comes to athletes, a lot goes into how they keep their performances levels high. One of those ways is through their nutrition. I spoke with Kate Davis, a registered dietician in Lansing, Michigan, on just how important it is to keep those things in mind for an athlete, as well as anyone trying to stay healthy. Davis graduated from Michigan State University with a master of science degree in human nutrition, with an emphasis in exercise physiology. She is a member of the United States Olympic Committee Sports Dietician Registry and has consulted teams such as the USA women’s hockey team, Grand Valley State University Athletics, and the Gatorade GFEAT Employee Wellness Program.
