What Should I Eat? | Eat Like a Champ: The Best Foods for Runners

What Should I Eat? | Eat Like a Champ: The Best Foods for Runners | Healthy Cuiken | Scoop.it

What you should eat before and after a training run — or any intense day at the gym — to help you energize, refuel and perform at your best.

 

Fueling your body before and after a strenuous workout is crucial for minimizing soreness and re-energizing your muscles. After a long training run or a high-intensity cardio day at the gym, your body is depleted of its stored energy, and your muscles need to replenish this glycogen as soon as possible in order to recover in time for your next workout. Eating snacks that combine protein and carbohydrates are best for nourishing your muscles the right way.

Just one daily serving could significantly reduce the risk of obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol in adulthood - conditions that can lead to type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease, according to researchers in Finland and Melbourne's Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.

'Vigorous exercise' cuts flu risk | Healthy Cuiken | Scoop.it

Moderate exercise did not appear to have a protective effect, the researchers said.
