For a champion stomach
These goals can be varied: lose or gain weight, lose fat or increase muscle mass, or just be healthier. To achieve these goals, some nutritionists recommend a periodization of your nutritional strategy, just like your training schedule is "periodized".
Indeed, nutrition can be seen as a function depending on your energy expenditure and physical goals associated with each phase of your training cycle.
Here are some tips to help you eat efficiently:
- A stomach, it heats up : It means finding the dishes and drinks you tolerate well during your workouts. The more intense your workouts, the more difficult the digestion will be : the blood circulation is concentrated to feed the muscles and turns away from the stomach. So, as your experience and the intensity of your sessions increases, it may be that what worked for you at the beginning becomes unsuitable. Nutrition must adapt. The ease of digesting and assimilating a sports nutrition product is a determining criterion. In order to reduce the risk of "rejection", it is important to identify and test new configurations. You have to find out what is the right "sequence" that will allow you to last over time and avoid these cramps and the accumulation of fatigue.
