Fourth International Conference on Nutrition and Fitness: Plan of Action for the 21st Century

International Olympic Academy, Ancient Olympia, Greece, May 25-29, 2000

The goals and objectives of the conference are to:

- Review and critique the latest scientific information on nutrition and fitness, taking into consideration genetic endowment, adaptation throughout the life cycle and the nutritional factors that contribute to fitness, specifically, the effect of the various dietary sources of energy on energy expenditure, exercise and performance.

- Determine the relationship of nutrition and fitness to chronic diseases, particularly, the metabolic changes that occur with the type and amount of physical activity for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease, obesity, osteoporosis, diabetes and cancer.

- Consider the psycho-social and other determinants of physical activity throughout the life cycle including intervention strategies, and emphasize healthy lifestyles consistent with proper nutrition and fitness.

- Stimulate national governments and the private sector to coordinate and thus maximize their efforts to develop programs that encourage proper nutrition and participation in sports activities by all, throughout the life cycle, to achieve their potential in fitness and thus increase the pool of young athletes, from whom the elite athlete will be forthcoming.

- Develop strategies for the distribution and implementation worldwide of the 1996 “Declaration of Olympia on Nutrition and Fitness” for the New Millennium.
