What diet should be continued when exercising? It’s the star question among athletes.
It’s such a popular topic that we’re getting more and more advice on exercise and nutrition. However, while certain are adequate, most of them do not march for the whole planet or at all, they are unmotivated myths. Therefore, even before continuing a diet or using one of these tips, it is advisable to ask food specialists to avoid possible risks.
One of the major drawbacks is that people do not understand how their bodies go, and tend to admit the help of anyone. The key to maintaining a balanced diet when practicing sport is to know the needs of our body.
Sara Lopez, Computer Engineering student in Denmark and Country Marketing Manager in Spain of Trendhim tells us 5 myths that are repeated continuously in sport:
1.Taking protein after exercise
If we think about nutrition after finishing the gym session, we all think of a muscular person taking a protein shake. But this practice is not what is advised, alén of the needs of each individual.
It has been proven that with the intake of a small amount of essential proteins even before training, the body is able to raise amino acid levels up to 2 hours later, so we should not obsess over taking them just to finish.
2. Drinking water with sugar reduces stiffness
One of the homemade antidotes, and the most widespread that has been used to end stiffness is the ingestion of water with sugar. The goal of this magical treatment is to end the lactic acid crystals that form in the muscle.
Out of myths, shoelaces do not disappear by art of birlibirloque with home remedies. It has always been believed that the author of shoelaces was lactic acid produced by muscles when exercising. And studies have proven that these crystals do not exist after training, so this treatment is worthless.
So the way to end stiffness is not to drink water with sugar, but to exercise more frequently.
3. Playing sports increases appetite
Practicing sport increases sensitivity to leptin, a hormone that releases fat cells, which informs our body that it is time to stop eating. Not only is sensitivity to leptin increased, but also the amount of amylin in the blood, thereby reducing hunger.
4. Any energy drink will do.
When selecting an energy drink it is necessary to take into consideration its peculiarities, in this way you will be able to determine if it is going to be effective or not.
To do this we must take into consideration the nutritional label lets identify what they have each drink and know so that it is better. Some have more carbohydrate, others have more protein, others have more vitamins or minerals.
5. I can eat anything
Sport doesn’t let one person eat everything. If you practice sport, but do not maintain a balanced diet we waste time.
Generally one of the primary needs when doing sport if we want it to be effective is to sustain good nutrition and take care of our diet. If we take care of our diet we are going to be contributing to the well-being of our organism, but if we eat like crazy, it is going to be useless.
