Athlete Diet Index

The Athlete Diet Index (ADI) is designed to assess how well you are eating to help you be healthy and perform at your peak. A higher overall score means you have a better eating pattern for health and sporting performance.


ADI Logo

The Athlete Diet Index (ADI) has been developed for and tested extensively in elite Australian athletes. The ADI rapidly evaluates your usual dietary intake and compares your responses to dietary guidelines and sports nutrition recommendations. The intake of certain nutrients relevant to athletes (i.e. calcium, iron), and dietary habits that support training are also assessed and summed to provide you with an overall ADI score. You will automatically receive a summary of your results at the completion of the ADI. This information can also be sent to your nominated sports dietitian.

Disclaimer: Dietary needs can change over time. Results from the ADI are based on information you have provided about your dietary intake this past week and your current training status. Individual and sport-specific requirements should always be considered particularly during periods of growth and development, when undertaking a high training load or during a disrupted training schedule due to competition, travel or injury. For dietary advice that’s tailored to your sport and personal goals, check in with an Accredited Sports Dietitian.
