A very important role in gaining performance is also the body composition of the athlete, composition which can be idealized just by optimizing the daily diet. This includes a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the daily menus and this cannot be realized mentally or manually, but with a special calculating program dedicated to this problem.
Nowadays, there are enough mathematical patterns, standards and information about the food’s nutritional content, which allow solving this issue on the computer. The program used in this paper, estimates anthropometrically actual and ideal parameters of the analyzed  subject, calculating individual basal metabolic rate and thermal effect of feeding, and uses the distributions of macro and micronutrients  appropriate  for the subject (meaning recommended daily doses), analyzed to the end, concerted menu, evaluating and correcting, optimizing the diet. In this paper we present a concrete case which illustrates the possibilities of this method for the benefit of the athlete. Although the procedure can be laborious, the effort of optimization is justified.
Key words: performance, sports, diet, optimization, calculating program.
