Vegetarian athletes weekly menu

What should athletes eat every day?

Nutrition guidelines for training and sports

The following guidelines are intended for people who play competitive sports, that is to say, for people who practice a constant sport during the week, such as running, or training for a sports league, be it football, basketball, tennis, etc.

In these cases, a number of tips, in addition to following the diet, should be taken into account: Noon food, before training, should be done at least two hours before the sport to be able to do the digestion correctly and should contain:

  • Foods low in protein and fat, to have a fast and not heavy digestion, such as white meat, (chicken, rabbit, turkey, etc.)
  • Foods with low fiber, to avoid a possible discomfort from flatulence during training, such as avoiding fruit with a lot of pulp. For example, it is preferable that an orange is consumed in the form of juice instead of natural; or that vegetables green leaves are preferable, contrary to those of cabbage type.
  • Make an intake of ½ liter of liquid in small sips two hours before the sport. If we take a bottle of water, we can facilitate constant intake and gradually throughout the day.
  • Eat properly the food that precedes the activity. On the day of the match or competition, it is necessary that the food that precedes said activity is performed correctly, to have the necessary energy.
