Houston Rockets Sports Dietitian Tara Boening Talks Nutrition in the NBA [VIDEO & TRANSCRIPT]

By Erin Sharoni Nov 30, 2016

NBA season is underway and that means players need to be in tip top shape. But, it's not only the athletes who have work to do; just like the game itself, keeping NBA players healthy is a team effort. Coaches, trainers, physicians and dietitians all work together to ensure that players are primed for performance throughout the season, and often use tools like InsideTracker to help them do so.

Just ask Tara Boening, a sports dietitian for the Houston Rockets who has tested a number of the team's athletes with InsideTracker. She says she uses InsideTracker as a tool to offer rock solid proof to players whether what they're consuming or doing is working for them...or not. "It's a concrete way to provide information to us on how we can improve their diet, how we can improve their training plans, their sleep, their recovery on paper, because your blood doesn't lie," Tara says. "It's a good tool for us to use... in order to help them perform better – which is our ultimate goal for them."

Like other diets, the caveman lifestyle has been described as overly restrictive and difficult to adhere to.
