Nourish Your Body With Nutrition
Exercising is one of the best ways to keep the human body in optimum shape besides the more obvious elements like proper diet and food choices. A good nutrition will allow the body to function well during and after a workout session. Being aware of the protein intake when physical activity is being practiced on a regular basis is important as it helps to ensure the correct amounts of macronutrient needs are being met.
*The carbohydrate and protein intake must be adequate to help maintain the body weight, replenish the glycogen store and help with the building and repairing of any tissue damage.
*The fat intake should also be of an adequate level as it will provide the essential fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins to maintain the energy level and weight maintenance.
The diet should ideally consists of energy derived from fat which should be about 20 – 25% of the overall energy contributor, anything less would not be able to yield the desired results.
*Having a good pre workout meal or hydrating liquid concoction would be most beneficial in ensuring all the right nutrients are available within the body system to help the body cope with the exercise regimen designed.
This may include some orange juice, water and whey protein, or some Endurathon mixed in with water, or a vanilla whey protein smoothie with berries and orange juice. Even some yoghurt and cereal or some
toast and peanut butter are good pre workout boosters.
*The post workout meal is also very important as this is provides the necessary elements to repair any damage done during the exercising session or to simply replenish the nutrients for the body. Drinking a shake or a sports drink or even eating an energy bar after a good work out session will help maximize the muscle building process and hasten the body recovery time..
