Confused by all the nutritional advice out there?
Follow these 3 rules and you can’t go wrong
1. Can I kill it? Can I eat it?
Does it come out of the ground like that? Has it been tampered with or treated? The closer to its natural source the better.
In training or a you may choose sports drinks/products instead but it is still worth learning a bit more about what is in them.
2. Eat every 2-3 hours
The perfect day involves making a slightly larger breakfast, lunch and evening meal than usual, chopping the plates in half and then eating half of each meal 2-3 hours before the other half – 6 meals a day but you only prepare 3.
3. Ensure you’re getting all your nutrients
Make sure that every meal contains all the nutrients that your body needs
i.e. Protein, Carbohydrate, Fats, Vitamins, Minerals, Fibre, Water.
To follow these 3 “rules” is going to take a lot of discipline but it’s worth it. It is also going to mean some learning, put aside an hour a week to reading about nutrition on-line, treat as part of your training ritual.
