It is important to eat well but when we train and do sports we have to eat accordingly.

Whether you’re a competitive athlete or a casual exerciser, what you eat affects your performance.

Your body needs the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and fluids to fuel your fitness. 

Fats, protein, and carbohydrates all provide your body with fuel to maintain energy. Carbohydrates are the primary fuel used by working muscles and adequate intake is essential for preventing muscle fatigue. 

While you should monitor your fat intake, you should not remove it from your diet completely. Fats provide fatty acids that can be used as a source of energy

– especially if your exercise sessions last longer than one hour. Fats also provide the building blocks for hormones and the formation of cell walls. 

Protein can be used as a source of energy and is critical for building new muscle tissue.


To conclude, If you are taking part in resistance training, your body will require additional protein.

Look for advice before starting a training or any exercise programs to make sure you are on the right track.

I would love to hear from you,

Have fun,
Gaétane
