      Yes it can. There are some nutritionists that are expert in this and they know what is the best diet depending on the sport type

      Yes it can.. a lot of exciting research goes into developing products to help improve performance in sports… athletes often have trouble eating enough food for the amount of training they are doing so some studies focus on healthy high calorie foods.. it is very interesting!
