Sport and Nutrition

“I am only just starting out with sports and fitness – what are the basics?”

Nutritional requirements for sport and exercise vary according to personal goals and levels of physical activity; from beginners through to the serious athlete. If you are just starting out with light exercise and looking to lose weight, you do not necessarily need sports products like isotonic drinks as your physical exertion may not require it and it could just be adding
extra calories.

Focus more on ensuring you get enough protein in your diet, eat wholegrain complex carbohydrates for sustained energy. Stay hydrated by replacing the water you lose through sweat. Be careful of eating sugary carbohydrates or foods high in fat, as although they will give you an instant energy boost, a drop in energy will follow. Plus they are high in calories!

“I normally exercise a few times a week, but have just decided to enter my first event. What changes do I need to make to my diet?”

Congratulations on making this first step toward the challenge and satisfaction that comes with completing your first event. Increasing your activity level also means increasing your calorie intake, but make sure the extra calories come from the right foods. The diet for athletes in training needs to focus on complex carbohydrates, good quality protein and fibre/nutrients from fruits, vegetables and a low-to-moderate fat intake.
