If you’re a competitive swimmer you’ll already keep in mind the benefit your diet program plays on your own performance from the pool. Here are some healthy meals and snacks for athletes.
If you’re planning to go swimming or training later from the day try eating an exercise-friendly meal two and three hours before going. This implies keeping your carbohydrate and protein levels high on roughly a 60:40 ratio instead of pigging out on Måltidskasser video. Here are several good examples:
Baked potatoes – fill them with beans, sweet corn or chilli, not too much cheese, and make sure to take in the skin, it’s the healthiest bit!.
Pasta meals or bakes – again go light about the cheese, include a lot of vegetables. Tuna is yet another great energy source.
Beans on toast – they can be the signature of a student’s staple diet but low-sugar baked beans are in reality really healthy for you. Bags of protein in the beans and wholemeal toast has your complex carbohydrates. Of course, if beans aren’t your thing, eggs will do the same job.
Chilli con carne – beans, lean mince, and brown rice all should set you up perfectly for exercise in some hours. Fatty, greasy mince, white rice and salty tortilla chips will not.
Unless you’re trying to lose extra fat don’t train before eating anything, you’ll be running on empty plus your performance will probably be impaired. Consume a small meal or snack between one and 2 hours before you start your training.
Elite athletes keep their blood sugar levels level as constant as you can by snacking regularly (and healthily) during the day. Only accomplish this if you’re training enough to never add bodyweight from the increased food/calorie consumption.
Target the same snacks you might as being a pre-training boost – complex carbohydrates, fruits or protein shakes.
If you’re investing in the metres in 44dexipky pool, your system will be needing a boost if you finish your training.
Always try and refuel within a half-hour of finishing and preferably within quarter-hour – your whole body immediately needs nutrients to correct muscles and replace energy.
Make certain you’re refuelling with the ‘right’ foods though – something reduced in fat but loaded with carbohydrates and protein.
