Sports Nutrition for Officiating
The Bottom Line
Basic sport nutrition is fuel refuel repair recover. You must insist that any worthwhile supplier has products that meet this criteria and they must first ask what your aims are!
The key element of any choice of Sports Nutrition product is ‘What are you trying to achieve?’ There are many benefits to be gained from adopting a sports nutrition product but they have to be aimed at specific needs. For example, a body builder who needs bulking up will have different requirements to a basketball official, a basketball official needs will vary to a soccer player.
The basics of sports nutrition are – fuel – refuel – repair – recover. Fuel 30 minutes before, refuel during, repair within 2 hours and recover taken within hours over a few days.
Sports Nutrition Supplements — Keep Your Choices Simple
The best sports nutrition is good nutrition. Eat well, train hard and your body will reward you with top performance. The philosophy of this sports nutrition supplement site is about keeping it simple! By "it" I mean your approach to using sports nutrition supplements like protein powder, weight loss pills, and bodybuilding supplements.
After all, personal fitness is not about popping pills or spending money on sports supplements with wild advertising claims, right?
So, keep it simple means three things:
Track What You Eat
Good sport nutrition starts by understanding what you eat. If you record what you crave and when, and what you consume before, after and during exercise, then you’ll know the best balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats that works FOR YOU.
Choose Workout Routines that Emphasize Good Nutrition and Sports Supplement Choices
Healthy eating and nutrition is a habit that can be learned and cultivated. However, if you are the kind of person who needs external discipline to get started, a structured step-by-step diet plan to losing weight may be what you need. However, you need to combine the nutrition part WITH the workout routine to really achieve success.
