For every sports person Nutritional Health is essential in order to be able to perform to his or her maximum ability. The nutrients we consume contribute greatly to our general good health and therefore have a large say in our bodily functions. Your growth, strength and general well being are largely impacted by your nutritional intake.
When you think of your own health requirements research, plan and organise well what is right and best for you. We all have different metabolisms so our individual needs vary. Study Nutrition well as it’s very important to get the balance right.
Lack of research and therefore lack of knowledge can lead to either insufficient intake of nutrients or even excess which can be equally as bad for you. The wrong foods can be detrimental to your health and can have a negative affect on your performance in sport. Unhealthy food classified as ‘junk food’ is particularly damaging to your overall health.
Achieving excellent levels of nutritional health is essential for peak performance. Remember you do not loose time by studying and investing in your own nutrition. You loose time when you do not study nutritional health properly as you will not perform as well. When you want the best from you don’t short change yourself. If you were to buy a new Ferrari sports car you’d hardly want a second hand engine included now would you? Just avoid giving yourself unnecessary health problems.
It is highly recommended to eat at regular times and avoid excessive dieting and skipping meals. On the basis you need to loose weight then do it gradually and the impact will potentially be a lot better. People on very strict diets often have withdrawal symptoms, which can lead to side affects and then adversely impact the individual’s performance. Toxins within your body are released back into your system. Drinking fresh clean water is a great way to of flushing out unwanted toxins within your body.
High fibre foods will also help you to detoxify. Regular daily intake will help you to reduce risk of decease and keep you cleaner within. Get to know your body well and how it reacts and adjusts to different quality foods that are definitely good for you. Good balance is key and as you educate your mind and body more you will potentially find a definite improvement in your overall physical ability.
Exercise and Nutrition go ‘hand in hand’ together so exercise well and look to get the right combination. Reaching the highest levels of nutritional health is possible for many of us but only for those who study nutritional health well.
Best of luck in sport and in excellent health.
