It’s great to see so many people taking up cycling as a sport. The Tour de France started in England this year and is a long gruelling race that doesn’t finish up until July 27 in Paris. Although the Tour de France is the extreme end of the sport with 21 stages covering a mind-boggling 3,664km (that’s almost 2,280 miles), amateur cyclists cover the miles too - so it is important to have the right mix of fuel on board to combat fatigue and optimise performance.
Dietitian Heather Miller, who holds clinics in Balla, Castlebar and Ballindine this week talks about sports and nutrition.
Sound eating is an essential component of improving performance in all sports. No amount of training will help you reach the top if you don’t have a healthy balanced diet to provide your body with the fuel it needs for activity.
The key to nutrition, and sports nutrition in particular, is to feed the body’s cells the nutrients it needs to thrive and to repair damage efficiently.
