Introduction: The consumption of nutritional supplements among athletes is increasing and this causes unwanted problems. Therefore, the main objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of media literacy training on athletes' attitude about dietary supplements.  
Materials and Methods: The statistical population of this study were all the fitness athletes in clubs of Kermanshah in 1395, among which 376 people were selected using Cochran formula. To collecting data, a researcher-made questionnaire on about food supplements and media literacy questionnaire was used. Data were analyzed using descriptive and analytical methods in SPSS16 software.
Results: The results showed that media literacy (P=0.001, r=0.282) and its components included media management awareness (P =0.001, r=0.455), critical thinking (P=0.001, r=0/282) and media analysis (P=0.001, r=0.638) have a positive and significant relationship with the attitude toward exercise supplementation. Also, it was found that the linear relationship between the two variables of media literacy and attitude about the self-administered supplementation of sport supplements (at the level of P≤0.01 and F = 20.401) was significant.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that media literacy and its components include knowledge of media management, critical thinking and media analysis have a positive and significant relationship with the attitude toward exercise supplementation.
