Get to know this nutritional advice
We are what we eat. Therefore, a well-balanced diet will be fundamental for a good preparation of our race. The basics are essential, so if you need professional advice, do not hesitate to contact your nutritionist.
Fruit and vegetables: Fruit and vegetables provide minerals and fibre as well as being an excellent source of energy. Eating 5 portions a day is highly recommended.
Carbohydrates: low glycaemic carbohydrates are perfect for saturating your glycogen stores and keeping your energy reserves topped up for longer, harder workouts.
Proteins: as well as being an excellent source of energy, protein helps us recover and builds the structure of our muscles. A minimum intake of 1.8 G of protein per kilogram of body weight will be essential during periods of heavy training.
Remember that hydration is an essential part of training. Hydration is not just about drinking water, it also means restoring salt levels in the body. So it will be important to hydrate before, during and after training.
Remember that just after each workout your body is like a sponge ready to recover with the best food. Take advantage of these metabolic windows to eat high quality foods, rich in carbohydrates as well as proteins.
