The NCAA Division I Council has approved the recommendation of the NCAA CSMAS to remove restrictions on protein from the rules that govern feeding student-athletes. The rule change does away with the long-standing “30% rule,” which limited the amount of protein in nutritional supplements to no more than 30% of the total calories.

Amy Freel, former CPSDA board member and current CPSDA Executive Directory, worked with CPSDA and SCAN leadership to bring this rule change under consideration.
