As a sports dietitian at JWU, I get questions all the time about how athletes should eat. I teach students simple ways to get calories, carbohydrates and protein that athletes need throughout the day into food.”


Formerly a division dietitian in the US Army, Jonathan Poyourow can articulate how different sports require different nutritional needs, what — and when — athletes should eat for optimal performance, food’s healing factors, and the proper balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Poyourow also hosts biweekly Cooking with Class segments on Providence NBC affiliate WJAR Channel 10.
