People often ask why India is not getting many Olympic medals. It's not easy to get such, because it needs serious team work for more than a decade without getting disturbed. Hyderabad Is having more than 30,000 serious players from all fields i.e. Distance Running, Cricket, Tennis, Badminton, Table tennis, swimming, cycling other sports and adventure activities. Sports persons from different disciplines need suitable modifications of advice in their diets.
Modern research shows that many players including National teams are having medical problems due to Undernourishment, Micronutrient deficiency and Food Supplemental habits. Players do not know how much water to drink, when to add sugar and salt and other electrolytes. There are many experts who advice sports nutrition to players; doctors, dieticians, coaches and trainers.
One needs to travel with different teams and understand their native habits, regional food, game needs, to advice authentically. Google also is full of confusion and lastly "somebody" who advises everybody. Food is completely changed. There are many myths such as proteins, vegetarian food, food for muscle supplement powders etc
