Nutrition & Fitness
Don’t forget nutrition while you’re embarking on your training programme. Correct nutrition is vital to ensure you’re supplying your body with all the energy it needs while you’re pushing it towards new levels of fitness. What’s more, if you’re not keeping an eye on what you eat, you can risk injury or illness as a result.
With so much apparently contradictory dietary advice out there, understanding nutrition can be no mean feat. Should you be eating more carbohydrates and less fat? Or should you be cutting out carbohydrates and eating more protein, as the Atkins diet advises? Should you be eating several light snacks a day, or only three square meals?
The best diet for you can depend on specifics of your training programme, and your fitness goals. If you’re training towards running a marathon, for example, you might want to practise carbohydrate loading. Alternatively, if your goal is to lose weight, you may need to monitor your calorie intake and make sure you’re burning more calories through exercise than you’re eating every day. Whatever your goal, we can help you figure out the right eating plan for you, and guide you through some of the dietary advice out there, so you can separate the truth from the myths.
