Huntington, NY (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Sportsideo, the rapidly growing sports social network announced today the launch of its Nutrition & the Athlete series of articles today. Written by Registered Dietitians Colleen Dawkins and Kimberly Ellison, the Nutrition & the Athlete Series provides nutrition information to athletes, parents, coaches, and conditioning trainers designed to help improve their nutritional status for healthier living and their athletic performance. The Nutrition & the Athlete Series can be found in Sportsideo’s OT Blog on Sportsideo.
Steve Vesce, Managing Director of Sportsideo commented, “Sportsideo’s growing community is made up of all of the people who participate in sports – athletes, coaches, scouts, trainers, healthcare professionals, new reporters, and fans. We have learned that the members in our community – athletes and non-athletes alike - have more questions than answers about good nutrition and there are many misconceptions surrounding this important subject. We all find ourselves asking questions about basic nutritional facts, as well as questioning the many new diet and supplement fads that seemingly arrive on the scene every day. Thanks to the work of Colleen Dawkins and Kimberly Ellison, Sportsideo will provide our readers with a series that can reference important information regarding basic nutritional information to improve health and performance, as well as provide insights into the latest popular diets and fads,” Vesce concluded.
Colleen Dawkins commented “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Steve and the Sportsideo team. We appreciate the chance to communicate our expertise to such a broad and engaged audience. Our goal is for the information we provide to dispel myths and also allow the reader to not only improve his or her athletic performance, but also become healthier overall. It is important that people make a shift towards being empowered and knowledgeable consumers, patients, and athletes.”
Kimberly Ellison added “You are what you eat, so make it count! Food is fuel for the body and anyone looking to achieve athletic goals should know how to fuel their body properly."
You can read the Nutrition & the Athlete Series of articles at Sportsideo’s OT on Sportsideo starting this Friday, November 30th.

Sportsideo (Sports “for that reason”) was founded by professional and amateur athletes to enable all sports participants to connect, improve, and achieve with others in their favorite sports. Sportsideo provides each member of our community with the same “pro experience” enjoyed by professional athletes whenever they enter their locker room – free, easy and instant access to professional and amateur Athletes, Coaches, Scouts, Officials, Agents, Executives, Healthcare Pros, Trainers, Nutritionists, News Reporters, and Sports Organizations. We began Sportsideo with two simple beliefs: 1) Participating in sports is good and helps children and adults lead happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives; and 2) people who share sports experiences improve their understanding of, and respect for each other.
