Eating for good performance


22-06-2017 -

80% of a fit and healthy body is nutrition, 20% is exercise. So it should be clear that the right nutrition will help your performance. If you train 2 to 4 times per week (high intensity functional exercises), responsible nutrition is the way to improve your performance:


·      By increasing your intake of quality proteins (meat, fish, eggs and poultry), your muscles will repair themselves more quickly, which means you can train harder, sooner.

·      By choosing good carbohydrates, your blood sugar level will fluctuate less and you will have more energy during hard training. And not unimportantly, these carbohydrates also promote muscle development.

·      By eating a quality diet, you replenish your vitamin and mineral reserves. Fruit is also a good choice, but don't eat more than two pieces per day in order to limit your fructose intake.

·      By eating more good fats, you will improve your balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The omega-3 to 6 balance is often not right. The ideal balance is 1 to 1, but unfortunately it is much more often 1 to 6 or worse. Too much omega-6 leads to an increase in inflammations in the body, whereas omega-3 actually has an anti-inflammatory effect. Omega-3 helps you stay free of injury by keeping inflammation in the body down.

A reduced fat percentage makes exercises that use your bodyweight easier. Imagine how much easier burpees would be if you weighed 10 kg less. Moreover, by training, your muscle mass increases and your body fat percentage falls. Which means you burn even more calories.
