YOUR DIET CAN HELP YOUR PERFORMANCE

MOST ATHLETES PLAN THEIR DIETS TO HELP IMPROVE THEIR PERFORMANCE-RUNNERS WILL EAT PLENTY OF CARBOHYDRATES BEFORE AN EVENT, WHILE WEIGHT LIFTERS EAT LOTS OF PROTEIN TO BUILD UP THEIR MUSCLES.

WHEN YOU EAT IS IMPORTANT- YOU SHOULD EAT LOTS OF CARBOHYDRATES BEFORE EXCERCISE BUT DONT EAT ANYTHING IMMEDIATELY BEFORE,DURING OR AFTER EXCERCISE.

THANKS TO BLOOD SHUNTING YOU DIGESTIVE SYSTEM HAS A LIMITED AMOUNT OF BLOOD SUPPLY WHEN YOU EXCERSISE. ANY FOOD IN YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WONT BE ABLE TO BE DIGESTED PROPERLY, SO YOUR MORE LIKELY TO FEEL SICK.
