    Nutritional guidance for Improved Fitness & Flexibility

    When embarking on a program to increase cardio-vascular fitness it is important to be aware of proper nutrition to help you reach your fitness gains.

    Extended periods of physical exertion take their toll on the body and deplete it of vital nutrients. It is important to stay well hydrated and guard against dehydration as this drastically decreases physical performance, ensure you consume at least 2 litres of water per day.

    An adequate amount of carbohydrates should be taken on board, at least 2000 calories from carbohydrates alone per day for a man, and 1500 for a woman taking part in cardio-vascular training, this fuels the body for physical activity and aids in the recovery process. Good sources of carbohydrate are wholegrain pasta, bread, rice, potatoes.

    Enough vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are important as physical activity depletes the body of these, a good multi-vitamin and mineral supplement and antioxidant supplement can replace these as well as plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables in a balanced diet. Fruit juices and vegetable juices that are not from concentrate can help provide vital nutrients.

    Protein must be consumed in the form of meat, fish, eggs and nuts to help grow and repair fatigued muscles. Good fats in the form of oily fish and Essential Fatty Acid supplements can ensure you get the correct fats in the body that can be used as stored energy.
