Eating for sport

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

To help you perform the best in sport and exercise – it’s good to be competitive! – you need to eat well to do well. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you can never drink or have a cheeky pizza ever again – but just not too much of it, and in balance with healthy things, so you’re not totally deprived!

There’s loads of great websites out there to help you make the right food choices, tell you what’s good to eat for a training regime (before and after exercise), and quick and easy recipes. Here’s a few we recommend!

• NHS: ‘Food for Sport’
Teen Weightwise website
• Teens Health: ‘A Guide to Eating For Sport’

• Daily Mail: ‘The Food of Champions – What the rugby players eat’
• Rugby Coach: ‘Eating to Win for Rugby Players’
• The Rugby Blog: ‘Nutrition for Rugby’

And don’t forget to check out our very own blog post about eating for sport – from a student’s point of view!
