The importance of nutrition in running

There is a fundamental point that we often neglect when we practice sports, and it is our diet, sometimes we do not give it the importance it deserves or we have it as a secondary element, all 메이저사이트 know that it is good to eat pasta before a race, but here the subject remains.

Once a basketball team came to eat at the restaurant that my in-laws had, they had a very clear and specific menu, and when my father-in-law offered them a snack, they said no.

When you see that professional teams and athletes take care of their nutrition in an orthodox way, that is when you should ask yourself if you are doing something wrong and you have to change your habits…

I don’t think I eat badly either, but if it is true that there are aspects of the diet that can be improved, the first thing is (and it is not easy) to eliminate everything that can be harmful, I mean chips, pastries industrial, sugary carbonated soft drinks, etc.It doesn’t seem difficult, and it’s about buying smart from the supermarket, I use an app called Yuka, which is a database of products and shows you if it’s good, bad or mediocre at a nutritional level, at least because you don’t have to waste a lot of time when reading ingredients and labels.

The second, and I am beginning to implement this now,

I eat fruit every day (I know that the recommendation is 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables a day), but for now I do what I can, as well as replace snacks with others that are more healthy, like popcorn for popcorn that you can do yourself, or sugary fizzy drinks for sparkling water.

The next thing I am trying to do is delve into everything related to the world of dietetics and nutrition, reading some books and doing courses, enough to see if I continue with it in a deeper way or not, there are very interesting courses, even I’m considering taking a professional turn and studying to be a nutritional coach, but we’ll see.

What is clear is that I will do much better and I will get better performance from my training,

 But above all I will gain in health, I will tell you. Conversely, if you’ve been eating nutrient dense foods all day, but haven’t been able to eat anything for 2-3 hours before a workout, it shouldn’t be a cause for concern. The objective of the food you consume during physical activity will be to provide the necessary nutrients to delay the depletion of the fuel stored in our body and provide the necessary fluids to compensate for those that we lose when perspiring.

In other words, the goal will be to try to keep our body at certain levels of balance, in order to avoid having to stop or considerably reduce our sports performance.
