Athletes cannot reach optimum performance without fueling their bodies properly. The body needs to have a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals to function optimally.

While the current study suggests that individuals have a broad understanding of healthy food choices, there are challenges with applying this knowledge into everyday practice. This is where blogs may come in handy as a tool for dietitians to communicate procedural healthy eating information effectively.

The twins are nationally recognized registered dietitian nutritionists and personal trainers. Their work has been featured on media outlets ranging from The Doctors and Fox and Friends to CNN and USA Today.
