To make a great sports person a balanced nutrition is important as well as exercise. Sports performance needs lot of energy. For getting more energy a balanced diet and large amount of water is required. In sports nutrition 2 major factors are water balance and energy fuel.
1. Fluid Balance:
Water plays a vital role in proper body functioning. As our body is made of sixty percent of water, every body function can not work without water. Through excretion(sweat or urine) body fluid removes waste products from our body. Without drinking a large amount of drink at a time it is better to drink small amount at short interval. Avoid cold beverages as it reduces body temperature and sweat amount. Drink al least 8 cups liquid per day.
2. Energy Fuel:
Sport nutrition should be balanced combination of carbohydrate, protein and fat which will provide lot of energy. Carbohydrate is the main source of fuel which can be obtained from rice, bread, cereals, fruits etc. Carbs provides energy and power which is necessary for physical activities.
As protein helps in muscle building, sports person should consume protein in large amount. Protein supplies calorie for long time. Eat lots of dairy, eggs, meats, fish and chicken, along with nuts and beans.
Another energy fuel source for sports activities is fat. Good fat should be consumed in moderate way. Though it is a necessary component in nutrition, the intake of fats should be strictly monitored. Excess fat consumption may lead to major health problems such as cancer and heart disease.
