The importance of good nutrition

Athletes require different nutritional needs than other people. Their calorie and macronutrient intake needs are usually higher to maintain strength and energy. An adequate diet provides the amount of energy and nutrients to meet the demands of physical training and help facilitate recovery. In addition to this it is also very important to stay well hydrated.

Macronutrients and Micronutrients

Macronutrients are the type of nutrients that the body requires in large quantities, being carbohydrates, proteins and fats. These elements provide the body with energy in the form of calories. Micronutrients are nutrients that the body requires in smaller amounts, usually vitamins and minerals.

Macronutrients provide the energy that athletes require for sports. Carbohydrates provide long-term energy, proteins support muscle structure and repair after exercise, and fats provide neurological health benefits.

Micronutrients are crucial for a variety of biological processes in the human body such as the conversion of food into energy and bone health. They also have a great effect on sports performance.
