It is no secret that training is only possible in the right combination with diet leads to maximum results. The right Training nutrition depends heavily on what type of sport you are. In doing so, it is between normal people and top athletes, because professional athletes need a specific nutrition strategy and are also genuine nutrition experts.
Average people who are regularly active in sports do not necessarily have to complicate the topic of nutrition. Even not if the training is also taken very seriously. In addition, the individual goal also plays a very important role in nutrition. This is how the diet looks different for those who want to lose weight than those who just want to build muscle.
Regardless of your goal, you should follow two basic rules:
- No artificial supplements such as fat burners, boosters, etc., because these are not only expensive and unnecessary, but also full of artificial ingredients.
- Drink enough – you should drink enough water before each workout. This does not mean the 5 min before the workout, but you should supply your body with water throughout the day to have enough energy for the workout.
Many often ask themselves whether they should eat protein powder? As a rule, this is not a problem as long as it does not contain artificial ingredients such as artificial additives, vitamins, flavours, etc. If you are already eating protein powder, the product should be as natural as possible. Do not ignore the fact that your own body must also be supplied with sufficient fluid during the workout.
The Fat and carbohydrate intake must be correct
For example, if you want to build muscle, your muscles need the right nutrients to grow quickly. The biggest priority is protein, because it forms the basis on which new muscle fibers are built. However, the necessary energy for the training is only obtained by carbohydrates and fats. Only when the fat and carbohydrate intake is correct, the body can use the supplied proteins correctly. If, on the other hand, too much protein and too few carbohydrates are added, the body will simply use the proteins to generate energy.
The following top protein suppliers should therefore not be missing from a diet plan:
- Eggs contain by far the highest quality protein – and that is that an egg delivers whole 7 grams of protein with the highest biological value (100%)
- Beef provides not only a decent portion of protein, but also iron.
- Poultry such as turkey and chicken are the most popular protein suppliers. One serving (125 g) provides at least 30 grams of protein.
- Tuna also provides a whopping 23 g protein with a serving of 100 g and only 144 Kcal. This also applies to canned fish, but it is recommended to to use variants “in one’s own juice”, because fish in oil is clearly Oily.
