Many people/athletes who are trying to enhance their fitness levels and do extra workouts or practices often leave out one of the important aspect of fitness – Nutrition. They just can’t get serious about taking a balanced diet that can give them an extra edge.

Eating and exercise are connected. To keep your body working and give optimum performance there are 5 golden rules which should be followed

  • Never Go for the workout empty stomach . Load your body with good carbohydrates. This will give you energy and raise your blood sugar. If you don’t eat, you might feel sluggish or lightheaded when you exercise. 3 hours before the workout one can choose to have complex carbs like bagels , muffins , pasta , pohe , Arabic bread .
  • Avoid very large meals before your sport event /competition. Large meals before workout can make you uncomfortable and cause gastrointestinal distress.
  • Always Keep yourself hydrated . This practice will optimize your performance. Having 2 cups of water 20 mins before your exercise /race and 2- 3 cups of fluid for every pound you lost after your exercise is ideal . For further details contact a professional nutritionist to craft a detailed chart for you.
  • Always eat after exercise as it is very helpful for speedy recovery of muscles. Make sure to combine carbohydrates and protein in your after exercise meal.
  • Don’t ignore fat completely . Fat provides energy and helps your body absorb some essential vitamins like A, D, E and K. Be sure to pick unsaturated fats. Good sources are avocado, olive and canola oils, flaxseed and nuts.
