Abstract

The focus of this research study was to assess the perception of athletes about diet and its role in the maintenance of performance. The target population of this research study was comprised of all the players of different sports clubs of District Bannu. Two hundred and six (206) players were randomly selected as sample of the study. For the collection of data, the researcher developed a closed form of questionnaire. The developed questionnaire personally served by the researcher among the respondents and collected back after getting it filled by the respondents. The collected data were tabulated and analyzed by using percentage and mean average as statistical tool. After data analysis, the researcher arrived at conclusion that proper diet is the basic requirement of athletic performance. The data also revealed that carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins, minerals and water are more important to consume in proper amount for sports participation.
