Thirty resistance trained NCAA Division I baseball players (82.4 ± 8.2 kg; 183 ± 6.3 cm; 13.7 ± 5% bodyfat) participated in the 12-week study. Fifteen players volunteered for the SNEI while 15 players matched for position served as controls (C). All players participated in a monitored, periodized strength (4 hr/wk), conditioning 3 hr/wk), and skills (20 hr/wk) training program. The nutrition intervention group (N) received a 90 min SNEI encompassing the following topics: energy intake (Kcal), carbohydrate (CHO), protein (PRO), fat, food sources, and hydration. Thereafter, N met once every three weeks with the primary researcher for educational reinforcement in groups of 5. Sport nutrition knowledge questionnaires (Reilly & Maughan, 2007) were administered to N at baseline (t-0) and following 12 weeks (t-12). Food intake was determined by three-day dietary logs administered to N at t-0 and t-12. Energy and macronutrient intake was calculated using Diet Analysis Plus (Cengage), and compared to nutritional requirements (Kcal: 45 kcal/kg; PRO: 2 g/kg; CHO 6 g/kg; Fat 1.5 g/kg). Body composition (BodPod), 1 RM back squat, vertical jump, and broad jump were measured at t-0 and t-12 for C and N. Pre and post nutritional status and knowledge were analyzed using paired samples t-test for N. Changes in body composition and performance were compared between C and N using an independent groups t-test with an alpha level of 0.05 for all tests.
