Which nutritional values are important and why?
Carbohydrates have, undeservedly, a bad reputation. We believe that carbohydrates are indispensable for athletes, because we get the majority of our energy from carbohydrates.
So if you want to use a training effectively, you should not leave it out, but focus on eating the good, so-called complex carbohydrates, which you can find in whole grains, legumes, fruit and vegetables. If you opt for complex carbohydrates, the fiber ensures a longer feeling of satiety and your body remains supplied with energy throughout the day. Plus, they keep your blood sugar stable and provide essential vitamins and minerals to keep your body fit.
Every athlete knows that proteins are an important part of your sports regime, but why? Proteins are essential for building and repairing your muscles. Although proteins can also be a source of energy if you are low in carbohydrates, their role in providing energy during your workout is limited.
Scientific research shows that consuming 20+ grams of protein after your workout is the perfect amount to support your body’s natural recovery.
Both carbohydrates and proteins play a crucial role in your exercise regime. This mainly concerns the balance; always try to maintain a 3 to 1 ratio of carbohydrates to proteins. So 60 grams of carbohydrates with 20 grams of proteins.
Boost your vegetable consumption
Our advice is to eat as many vegetables and as often as possible. With your breakfast, lunch, as a snack and of course as an essential part of your dinner. Vegetables are naturally low in calories and fat. In addition, they are a great source of fiber, vitamins and other essential components for the functioning of your body.
Set yourself the goal of filling your plate halfway with vegetables and choose as many different colors as possible, for a maximum boost of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
The challenge is to stay away from proteins that are high in saturated fat and trans fat, but to choose unsaturated fat. These so-called healthy fatty acids help prevent inflammation and are a perfect source of calories. Nuts, seeds, avocado, olives and oils, including olive oil, contain a good dose of these essential fatty acids to keep you fit.
Vegetable proteins are ideal for this because they are naturally low in saturated fat and trans fat and high in unsaturated fat.
