Best Nutrition Trend

1. Hydration in the bottle; calories in your pocket.
Two sports scientists, Allen Lim and Stacy Sims, started convincing athletes to separate hydration and calories, and they created their own sports drink lines to support their research: Skratch Labs (Lim) and Osmo Nutrition (Sims).

2. Gluten-free sports nutrition
More athletes are going gluten-free and the amount of sports nutrition options have rapidly grown this year.

3. Whole-food fueling
While sports nutrition is necessary in certain situations, we’ve seen more and more people revert to fueling with whole foods—things like bananas, nuts, dried fruit and coconut water—when possible.
