Five Nutritional Practices To Keep In Mind Before, During And After The Tournament

An Athlete can be defined in a sense of having a good physique, endurance, agility, discipline, competitiveness, sporting zeal and a good time management. Their performance often makes us happy. But is it only the training or skills that contribute? Or is there more to it?

Welcome to the world of an athlete. To gain a competitive edge, training and exercising is a part of the daily routine of an athlete but to do such strenuous work, one must have a nutritious diet that gives the required energy to sustain oneself in the battle field.

The Must Nutritional Practices

  • Get Good Fats: Eating healthy fats, such as polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats (omega-3s and omega-6s) which have the ability to battle inflammation caused during practice sessions and aids in normalizing the functioning of body tissues that act as structural components of cell membranes while providing a source of energy. For that include fish, nuts, seeds, canola, olive oils and avocados.
  • High Protein: Protein is the major building block of our body. It builds and maintains our tissues. An athlete needs more protein than an average person to repair and rebuild muscle that is broken down during sporting event or exercise. Fish, soy foods, nuts, and seeds are the good source of protein and are easily available in super markets.
  • Loading Carbohydrates: Muscles rely on carbohydrates for immediate and long-lasting energy which becomes the necessity especially being an athlete. Dairy products are the great source of carbohydrate including protein. Carbs break down in our body into glucose that provides energy to our muscles required during the tournament.
  • Be Hydrate: Fluids help to transport nutrients to give the energy and keep you letting perform non-stop in the field. If you’re not hydrated, your body can’t perform at its best. You might feel tired, have muscle cramps, dizziness, and other problems stopping your body perform optimally while making you feel exhausted during and after the tournament.
  • Exercise and Sleep: Exercise helps in flexibility and gives many benefits to the body. On the other hand, sleep is important to enhance performance, concentration to plan and think tactically being as a sports player.

Over to You:

A well-planned, nutritious diet helps meet an athlete’s daily requirement. However, to get the best nutritious diet, consult a nutritionist to maintain a healthy and well-balance diet.
