Healthy Diet for Athletes


The oxidation process that metal causes to rust is also at work insite our body.Oxidation means:something has reacted with oxygen and oxygen molecules have lost an electron during their interaction with other molecules. These so called free radicals try to steal molecules from any healthy molecules they can find and in the process create more free radicals.

Every breath we take causes free radicals and damage our healthy cells,as they try to stabilize themselves. The damage of free radicals is significant.Research is showing more and more evidence that fee radical damage is the cause of many degenerative diseases,like cancer,stroke,heart disease,eye diseases,macular degeneration and the aging process itself.

As with extensive exercises and heavy breathing many free radials are generated,it is sensible to eat a diet rich in antioxidants,like vit.C packet citres fruits,broccoli,dark green vegetables,beta-carotene rich carrots, sweet potatos and spinach.Also wheatgerm and vegetable oils,which are rich in vit.E,to counteract the damaging effect of free radicals.

As I explained in my subject about cellular nutrition,the anti-oxidants we get out of our food are not sufficient to neutrolize the effect of free radicals. It makes sense to follow the example of world leading athletes,like: 1.Steve Hooker,Olympic Gold matalist and USANA sponsored athlete,pole vaut,ranked #1 at Bejiing Olympics 2008;ranked #1 at Perth Interclub Meet in 2008,ranked #1 at Commonwealth Games in Melbourne 2006. Steve takes USANA ssentials,Biomega,Procosamine,Coquinone, Garlic EC and bulk nutromeal pouches.

2.Clint Robinson,Olympic Gold metalist and USANA sponsered athlete,winning K1 1000 meter Canoe/Kayak at the 1992 Barcelona Olympcs. Clint takes the Essentials,Proflavanol 90,Garlic EC,E-prime and Biomega-3. 3.The Australian Women's Yngling Sailing Team are newly sponsored USANA Athletes.They came 2nd place at the Yngling World Championships. 4.The Australian Swim Team:Trevis Nederpelt,Matt Target,Elese Zaleski,Amy Cockerton,Daniel Blackborrow and Aike Sakeson. These elite athletes noticed multiple benefits,including health improvements,increased energy levels and greater endurance.

5.Derek Parra,Olympic Gold medalist speedskating. 6.Jenefer Azzi,Olympic gold medalist basketball. 7.Thurl Baily,NBA All-Star basketball player. They are using the USANA essentials and other products to supplement their diet.

Fluids: An athlete should drink plenty of fluid,before,during and after an event, even when you are not thirsty,because you can't rely on thirst as an indicator of your body's hydration status.Caffeine containing drinks can make you dehydrated. Weigh youself before and after an event.For every pound you lose,drink 2 cups of water.

Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are important to fuel your body;60-65% of your diet should come from carbohydrates.Eating complex carbohydrates will strenghen your endurance,but are burned off during intense excercise. Foods high in carbohydrates are not high in calories.

Protein: Athletes and even weightlifters need .8 to 1 gram of protein per kg. bodyweight. Extra protein or protein supplements don't build more muscle.Working the muscle is the key! Most athletes and non-athletes are getting enough protein out of their daly diet.If you eat more protein than your body need,it's converted into body fat,if you consume more calories than your body needs.

The USANA Macro-Opimizers,like Fibergy,Nutromeal and snackbars contain the right ratio's of Carbohydrates,protein and fat to keep your energy at optimum level.

The USANA products are manufactured according to pharmaceutical standards, they are bio-available,potency guaranteed,well balanced and the ingredients work together in synergy. USANA products are the Gold Standard for the spors community.
