The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a nutrition education intervention on dietary behaviors and health outcomes among elite collegiate Cross Country runners. Specifically, this study evaluated the impact of the nutrition education intervention on daily caloric intake, energy deficiency, and BMI of NCAA male and female Cross Country runners, as well as menstrual status of the female Cross Country runners, from Fall 2013 to Fall 2014. Data was collected on 23 student-athletes. Results showed that the nutrition education intervention did not significantly change energy status, weight status, or menstrual dysfunction from Fall 2013 to Fall 2014. In addition, there was no significant relationship between change in energy status and a likelihood to meet expected weight or criteria for eumenorrhea in females from Fall 2013 to Fall 2014.
