What food could be very interesting?
Dates, for example, are an ideal food for sport. Dates are a very energetic food, so they can help a lot in sports practice.
Unlike sweetened products, dates can provide energy to the athlete for a long time because their high fiber content prolongs the feeling of satiety and improves the assimilation of the carbohydrates they contain.
