nutricion

Daily optimal nutrition plans must provide athletes with the energy load and essential nutrients for peak performance, in order to enhance their bodies’ adaptation during training, as well as to facilitate 100% of their recovery after physical and mental effort. We believe that both aspects go together, and that a proper diet with optimal products and nutrients can enhance mental wellbeing, allowing us to face training in a more optimistic way.

Nutritional requirements for athletes vary according to the sports they practice, the intensity of the practice, as well as the time they spend and the level of competition. Vitamins, minerals and trace elements play an important role as cofactors in important reactions of the energetic metabolism, as well as in the synthesis of tissues. An insufficient intake of micronutrients can considerably reduce sports performance and adaptation, and at the same time increase the sensation of fatigue and impede recovery between series of competition or training sessions.

THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD NUTRITION

A hydration strategy that takes into account the liquid intake before, during and after the sports practice may avoid a decrease in the cardiovascular and thermoregulatory capacity of the body, as well as an increase perception of effort, delayed gastric emptying, gastrointestinal problems, or difficulty in decision making. All these factors may be directly related to dehydration.
Nutritional recovery is considered a key factor in sports performance, and it is specific to every athlete and training. It should be determined by the physiological changes produced by the typology of the sports practice (energetic fuel depletion, dehydration level, etc.), as well as by the athlete’s adaptation and performance, or the session length.
Athletes’ adaptation to their training plan depends on, among other factor, their capacity of staying healthy and injury-free. An intense physical effort can provoke immunosuppression and alteration of the hormonal system, which may provoke potential harm over health and bone, muscles, and tendon integrity, all of them factors that deserve special attention. That is why high-level sports performance relies on an optimal nutritional condition, and avoids micronutrients deficiencies that can affect the athlete.

Nutrition plans determine the bio nutritional profile of the athlete, to establish specific nutritional objectives. This information should be obtained through a medical history, a detailed study of the athlete’s diet, and the bionutritional profile IoMET.
Taking into consideration a variety of factors, such as the sports practiced, the training level, the competition level, injuries frequency if any, the appearance of gastrointestinal alterations during the physical exercise, as well as the determination of any deficiencies and physical objectives agreed between the coach and the athlete, we will establish a personalized nutrition plan. This plan will be modified according to new objectives or competitions, as well as with physical evolution of the athlete.

The nutrition plan will consist of distinct meals and supplements during training, and a more directed diet for the pre-competition and competition stages.

Example of the nutrition plan:
– Full week
– 5 daily intakes: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks between meals
– Total caloric intake
– Total intake (grams) of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids
– Average portions (grams)
– Personalized diets according to the athlete and his/her needs
