Abstract

Sports nutrition has been proven to contribute directly to athletes’ performance. To help athletes improve their eating habits, sports nutritionists and dietitians need accurate information and feedback. In this paper, the framework of a sports nutrition app known as DietScore™ provides a reliable solution. Development of the tool was done by customizing energy requirement of athletes, types, duration and intensity of training and specific macro- and micro-nutrient needs based on local foods. Additionally, athletes would be able to plan their menu for the following day, which improves their knowledge on daily food intake. These daily activity data are stored in the local database in offline mode and later synchronized by mobile app, which also serves as a Knowledge Management System on Sports Nutrition. DietScore™ could expand into the public domain to increase its social and economic impact. It provides a useful and effective platform, which acts as virtual sports nutrition counselor for both athletes and sports nutritionists/dietitians. With the application of local foods content, DietScore™ will be unique as the first sports nutrition utility tool in the market.
