Nutrition also plays a vital role to help reduce the impact of heat stress on our health and sports performance. Our bodies are all different, so there is never a “one size fits all” nutrition and hydration strategy. For example, we all sweat at different rates, and the ability to access and tolerate fluid varies between sports and athletes. Sports Dietitians Australia, the peak body for evidence-based sports nutrition in Australia, suggest athletes seek the advice of an Accredited Sports Dietitian for guidance, as both over and under-drinking during exercise can be potentially harmful.
