Team Nutritionist Assignment

You need to gather information about athletes caloric requirments, the
nutritional information on the foods you will use to feed your team 
(calories, food labels/carbs, protein, fat, fiber, water, vitamins, 
minerals...), and special needs of those athletes who need to lose 
weight/gain weight.  How many calories do your athletes need every day?  Are
there different requirements for different athletes/position players?  What
are the best sources of energy for them?  What should they eat after a
workout?  What should they eat before contests?
Make a sample meal plan/menu for your athletes that includes breakfast, 
lunch, dinner, and snacks.
