Nutrition & Fitness explained by Sam
Here are some of the most insightful tips you'll find scattered around all in one. It's important to know what we're about to say because it'll offer you a quick & easy understanding into how your body works which will show you the results even faster.
What diet should active people have?
Active people need energy right, which is in the form of carbohydrates, fats as well as protein. It's vital to eat a variety of foods such as grains, veg, fruit, beans, lean meats, fish and low-fat dairy (ideally). Active people prioritise staying hydrated throughout the day, for your body to function properly drink enough water depending on your activities.
Are carbs important for active people?
When you consume sugars, for example, your body will change them into glucose, which is actually the only form of carb used by muscles directly for energy use. They come in all forms (vegetables, sugar, fruits, lactose).
Your body uses glucose, they become stored as glycogen, then during exercise are broken down in your muscles to provide energy.
Should active people need extra protein to build muscles?
Not at all, they only need a certain amount of protein, muscles develop from training & exercise. Protein doesn't get stored like carbs, imagine eating too much is like overstocking fresh fish, you need to use it there and then or it'll go off, and if you don't use the overload of protein then it gets turned to fat, which is the biggest trouble of big bodybuilders. Here at My French Coach, we believe a well-balanced diet, with plenty of natural fats, is the way forward, like anything in life taken in doses.
What should you eat before, during and after any exercise?
All 3 are relatively important, you can't race a car with no fuel, how cheesy but true.
High carbs are great just like banana's (my favourite), fresh bread or fruit juice. They will provide quick energy to your body.
Timing-wise, eating right before a workout will probably not be a great idea, personally, 1-2 hours gives your body enough time to digest and do it's job before you do your job.
Stay hydrated before any workout, it'll improve your strength and stamina by 10-15%, how crazy!
When working out properly you may be burning a lot of energy so quick sugars can help relieve this, you see tennis player at Wimbledon has one bite of a banana after every set, they do it because it works so try it.
Easy to remember, 1 bite of a banana or natural sugar, enough water.
If you've completed a good workout, you'll feel sweaty, tired and low on energy, this is good, all you need to do is refuel, replenish the system.
However much you have burnt you will now want to get something good back in your body, let's say a small bowl of pasta, chicken and veg.
I really hope this helps, I made everything as easy to understand as possible without using too many super technical words, we're always here to help and to offer advice on your health & fitness.
