Performance Nutrition Model part 2

The food DiaryThis is second part of my performance nutrition model.

 This may sound simple but it is one of the biggest things that I see people, especially athletes getting wrong. If you are an athlete, your demands are much higher than the average person.

Bear in mind that anybody that trains 3/4 times a week, I consider them to be an athlete. The common perception for people looking to lose weight is that you need to eat less.

I would be more concerned about what you are actually eating. Many of my weight loss clients actually end up eating more.

The biggest reason why I encourage all of my athletes to eat more often is that it is very hard to get the required amount of nutrients into you each day without eating 5 to 6 meals per day.

An athlete requires a very high amount of protein everyday for muscle repair and growth. My target for all of my athletes regarding protein is to eat 2g protein per kg bodyweight per day.

The average high protein lunch or diet will contain roughly 30-40g of protein. Most people I deal with don’t get more than 100g of protein per day. Ideally you should aim to eat every 3 hours. This will roughly leave you eating 5/6 meals per day.

Make good choices and eat them more often for better results.
