Nutritionist takes on critical role as athletes train back home

Florida State director of sports nutrition Marisa Faibish joins the Osceola to discuss what she is doing to stay in touch with athletes as they are living back home, working out and conditioning on their own.

Faibish emphasizes the importance of hydration as the weather gets warmer. FSU is sending care packages and ordering meal packages for players that are customized to their nutritional needs, whether they are looking to add or lose weight.

She is encouraged that players have shared photos or videos of post-workout smoothies or shakes and that they have found competition in trying to be creative in that arena.
