Nutrition

At the University of Mississippi we believe that the key to improving performance for most athletes involves the two most important variables of the recovery process, Nutrition and Sleep.  No amount of training or work ethic can overcome a poor lifestyle.  An athlete's lifestyle will become one of the determining factors in his/her success or failure as an athlete.  Poor eating habits, inadequate sleep, and any overuse of alcohol will lead to overtraining, fatigue, impaired performance, and inevitably a shortened career.  Sufficient recovery, through proper nutrition and adequate sleep, will enhance an athlete's ability to reach his/her maximum athletic potential.  At the University of Mississippi we stress to the athlete that winning championships is an on and off the field commitment.
