Tiger Bites Nutrition Program


A College of Health Sciences, Human Performance Center and Memphis Tigers Athletics initiative.

The Tiger Bites nutrition program is a collaboration between Memphis Tigers Athletics and the College of Health Sciences/Human Performance Center.  The mission of Tiger Bites is to improve the nutrition awareness of University of Memphis student athletes for both performance and overall wellness purposes through aligning Tigers Athletics with the discipline specific expertise within the College of Health Sciences.

Tiger Bites staff are members of the Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association (CPSDA), which is a professional association representing advanced practice registered dietitian nutritionists who work with athletes in colleges, professional sports, Olympic training centers, the US Military and law enforcement.  CPSDA speaks with one voice on behalf of America’s leading sorts dietitians and is founded on the fundamental “food first” principle that “whole foods are the best fuel” and that athletic programs operating at every level of competition will best serve their athletes when employing the full time services of a sports dietitian.
