Athletes follow strict nutritional plans in order to enhance their performance and reach their training goals. They understand with every meal they are either improving their performance or sabotaging it completely.
“Athletes require foods that are nutrient dense primarily for muscle repair (recovery), and energy,” says Master Trainer Vince Liguori. He explains, “Some of the worst would-be foods (calories) that are void of nutrients such as processed foods.”
Anna Nemeckay, Director of Personal Fitness coaching at Silver Mountain Sport Clubs, explains an athlete would never eat beans, sugary sports drinks, beer, flavored yogurt and diet soda. Each of these foods cause more harm to the body than good.
Try following the same healthy guidelines an athlete does.
