Abstract: The performance of an endurance athlete is influenced by multiple factors, such as body composition and overall fitness. Out of these factors, diet can often be neglected or considered less significant. Yet, an athlete’s needs are amplified through their elevated energy expenditure, it is therefore of the utmost importance that they closely consider their intakes to fit their specific needs. Furthermore, carbohydrates (CHOs) are an athlete’s primary source of energy, making its CHO needs much higher than non-athlete’s. Nonetheless, a lot of endurance athletes do not consume enough CHOs, which can have negative impacts on their health and overall performance. On the other hand, current dietary assessment tools often take a lot of time to administer and analyze and require the expertise of a trained nutritionist. Thus, the purpose of this project was to develop and validate a short dietary screener for sufficiant and insufficiant CHO consumption in endurance athletes. These findings suggest that the developed screener is precise and effective in the target population.
