Nutrition for optimum athlete workouts

‘The Essentials’

‘A good diet can’t make an average athlete great, but a poor diet can make a great athlete average’ D. Costill (1994).

Here are some recommended foods to eat in order to fuel your workout optimally. Remember that you will only be able to train and perform at your maximum if you are fuelled to do so.

For fat loss gains try to workout on an empty stomach, or make sure that you have digested at least a small meal 2-3 hours before.

Remember that if the body’s gas tank is empty your muscles will not produce the required power and will turn to fat for a fuel rather than carbohydrate, as a result be aware that your technique may be affected.
