Visitor Questions
Q Do you have any recommendations for people with higher nutritional requirements due to playing sport?

Although some athletes limit their carbohydrate intake, this can actually be detrimental. Whole grains and starches such as oats, sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, etc should be staples of a healthy diet, especially for an athlete that expends lots of energy and burns carbohydrates on a regular basis. Carbohydrates actually spare your body's protein stores so enjoying a carbohydrate meal actually helps preserve your lean muscle. All of the World's Healthiest Foods are ideal to include in your diet to provide optimal nutrition and a foundation for building lean muscle and exercise endurance. The The George Mateljan Healthy Way of Eating Menu

will give you a good guideline of the types of foods to include; however, you will likely need to increase the number of snacks and size of the meal you consume because of your high energy expenditure.

Importantly, building additional muscle requires high-quality protein. You may want to review the Protein Profileour website for ideas about protein-rich foods and accompanying recipes. We especially like legumes, nuts, seeds, and fish as staple protein sources, and for individuals who can consume dairy products without adverse reaction, we like moderate amounts of those foods as well.
