sports & nutrition?
Sports nutrition plays a key role in Optimising the beneficial effects of physical activity, whether you’re a bodybuilder, a professional athlete in training or exercising to improve your mental and physical health. Consuming the right balance of food and drink is important for everyone and those actively participating in sports need to be aware that it can also affect performance. For example, athletes may need more calories than the average person, or individuals training for bodybuilding competitions may need to increase their protein intake: a good nutrition plan is key to your success. Sports nutrition differs from regular nutrition because athletes require different levels of nutrients than non-athletes. Nutrients are fuel for the body. In order for our physical and mental health to remain strong and healthy, we need to consume a balanced diet of nutrients that can carry you through everyday life.
