Proper diet can’t make an average athlete elite, but a poor diet makes and elite athlete average
And we agree 100%
We see nutrition as a very important part of the training. There are three main goals that are achieved via nutrition:
We have to make sure that athlete eats enough, as not eating enough does not only impair performance, but can also lead to severe health problems.
In addition to that, evidence is clear that having high carbohydrate availability before, during and after training sessions results in hindering the training adaptations. In other words, you can destroy most of the hard work by eating too much at certain occasions.
It is actually not, as soon as you periodise your nutritional intake in accordance with the training sessions prescribed by your coach. We call this approach carbohydrate periodisation.
Our well renowned nutritionist then creates a carbohydrate periodisation using a colour coding system that lets you immediately know how much food you have to have.
Red colour means – STOP, you do not need many carbohydrates and you can limit their intake.
Green means – GO, eat your carbohydrates to make sure you have energy required for undertaking the exercise bout.
Upon your preferences, we can calculate the exact amounts of carbohydrates that you are recommended to eat before each session or we can guid you by just providing you written instructions. It’s up to you.
