Nutritional Facts

X
Neuwnd8mtk29ehcydori hard labour banner

1. Carbohydrates

The main fuel used by the body during high intensity exercise is carbohydrates, which is stored in muscle as glycogen—a form of sugar. During exercise, muscle glycogen reserves can be used up, especially when activities last longer than 90 min. Because the amount of glycogen stored in the body is limited, it is important for athletes to replace glycogen by consuming a diet high in carbohydrates. Meeting energy needs can help improve performance during the sport, as well as improve overall strength and endurance. 


2. Eating After Exercise

It is important to consume carbohydrate, within 15 minutes post-exercise to help restore glycogen. Research has shown that eating 100-200 grams of carbohydrate within two hours of endurance exercise is essential to building adequate glycogen stores for continued training. Waiting longer than two hours to eat results in 50 percent less glycogen stored in the muscle. The reason for this is that carbohydrate consumption stimulates insulin production, which aids the production of muscle glycogen. Consuming a protein:carb (1:4) supplement makes for an even higher glycogen storing capacity.


3. Carbohydrate Plus Protein Speeds Recovery

Research shows that combining protein with carbohydrate in the two hours after exercise nearly doubles the insulin response, which results in more stored glycogen. The optimal carbohydrate to protein ratio for this effect is 4:1 (four grams of carbohydrate for every one gram of protein). One study found that athletes who refuelled with carbohydrate and protein had 100 percent greater muscle glycogen stores than those who only ate carbohydrate. Insulin was also highest in those who consumed a carbohydrate and protein drink. 


4. Carbohydrate

Carbohydrate is the predominant energy source for strength training. Stored as glycogen in the muscles, it is the fuel used to supply energy for short, intense bursts of power. The harder and longer you work out, the more glycogen your muscles require. Once these stores of glycogen are gone your energy level will drop and you will run out of fuel to power muscle contractions. For this reason, athletes doing strength training exercise in the hopes of building lean muscle need to have an adequate carbohydrates intake. Experts recommend at least 500 to 600 grams of carbohydrate or 9-12 grams/kg/lean body mass per day to keep your muscle glycogen stores high. For a 80 kg (140 pound) person this is about 504 grams per day or about 2,000 carbohydrate calories and 720 grams or 2,900 carbohydrate calories for a 110 kg (200-pound) person. 


5. Protein

Protein is the basic building material for muscle tissue, and strength trainers need to consume more than the non-exercisers. However, most strength athletes still overestimate their protein needs. Daily protein recommendations for serious strength athletes are about 1.2 to 1.5 grams per kilogram of body weight. That's about 90 to 115 grams of protein/day for the 80 kg (140-pound) athlete and 128 to 164 grams for those weighing 110 kg (200 pounds). 


6. Water

In addition to the regular eight glasses of water every day, you need to drink to replace fluids that are lost during exercise. To be confident that you are well hydrated before workouts, drink 2 cups of fluid 2 hours before exercise. During your workout, drink 120 ml - 250 ml (4 to 8 ounces) every 15 to 20 minutes. After exercise, replace any further fluid losses with 500 ml (16 ounces) of water. If you want to be precise, you can weigh yourself before and after workouts. For each kilogram (pound) lost during exercise, you should be drink 500 ml (16 ounces) of fluid. 


7. MORE EXERCISE = MORE PROTEIN

The more prolonged or intense the exercise, the more protein the body cannibalizes for energy from the working muscles. Studies confirm that both endurance and strength training increase skeletal muscle protein synthesis (breakdown). The rate of recovery and muscle synthesis rate are dramatically increased if amino acids and carbohydrates is consumed together immediately after the exercise training. Intense training may increase dietary protein requirements to as high as 1.7 grams protein per kilogram bodyweight per day. More exercise requires more protein therefore:1.2 grams/kg/day is required for 1-1.5 hours exercise; 1.4 grams/kg/day is required for 2-4 hours; 1.7 grams/kg/day protein is required to replace amino acids cannibalized during extreme exercise lasting 5 hours or longer. 


8. Carbohydrate and proteins

Carbohydrate (260 calories per/hour +/- 20 k/cal) consumed with proteins during workouts reduces the exercise-induced toll on lean muscle mass wasting with performance implications. After 70-90 minutes of exercise, glycogen stores dip low enough to commence recruiting amino acids from lean muscle stores into the energy cycle at a greater rate. Replacement of cannibalized protein needs to begin during exercise and restored within 30 minutes (ideal) to 120 minutes after exercise. 


9. Exercise vs. Muscle growth

Exercise has a profound effect on muscle growth, which can occur only if muscle protein synthesis exceeds muscle protein breakdown; there must be a positive muscle protein balance. Resistance exercise improves muscle protein balance, but, in the absence of food intake, the balance remains negative (i.e., catabolic). The response of muscle protein metabolism to a resistance exercise bout lasts for 24-48 hours; thus, the interaction between protein metabolism and any meals consumed in this period will determine the impact of the diet on muscle hypertrophy. 


10. Catabolism vs. Anabolism

In activities that involve explosive and powerfully focused movements (such as weight training) the forces directed against the muscle are much more significant, and they occur over a much shorter time span. In each circumstance, the muscle will naturally break down, a process known as 'catabolism.' The breakdown includes the physical separation of the fibers that comprise the muscle structure. The subsequent repair of the damaged muscle is 'anabolism,' the building up and the growth of the existing and previously damaged fiber.


11. CREATINE

Creatine is a naturally occurring amino acid derived from the amino acids glycine, arginine, and methionine. Increased storing of creatine or phosphocreatine would improve the ability to produce energy during high intensity exercise as well as improve the speed of recovery from high-intensity exercise. Creatine supplementation (20 g per day or 0.3 g per kg body mass per day for 4 to 7 days termed the loading phase) has been reported to increase intramuscular creatine and phosphocreatine content by 10 to 30%. Where after a dosage of 5-10g per day is sufficient to maintain creatine stores. There is also evidence that creatine supplementation enhances the rate of PCr resynthesis following intense exercise. Most studies indicate that short-term creatine supplementation increases total body mass; work performed during multiple sets of maximal effort muscle contractions and single and/or repetitive sprint capacity.


12. L-Glutamine

L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It is found in high-protein foods such as fish, beans, meat and dairy products. Research shows that L-Glutamine helps facilitate the release of growth hormone. L-Glutamine is also an important fuel for white blood cells, so reductions in blood glutamine concentration following intense exercise may contribute to immune suppression in overtrained athletes. So supplementing with L-Glutamine may have a significant impact on boosting the immune system. In clinical situations and during high-intensity exercise preliminary studies indicate that supplementation with L-Glutamine (4 to 12 g) can prevent the decline or even increase glutamine concentration during exercise.


13. BCAA’s

Branch Chain Amino Acids. BCAA’s have been shown to increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis and muscle growth. BCAAs or Branched Chain Amino acids are a group of three essential amino acids: isoleucine, leucine, and valine. The combination of these three essential amino acids make up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the human body, and play an important role in protein synthesis. They are responsible for promoting muscle growth and repair, particularly after strenuous training. After a bout of resistance training the muscle will be in a catabolic state, with a protein synthesis deficit, it synthesizes protein. BCAA supplementation has been reported to decrease exercise-induced protein degradation and/or muscle enzyme release (an indicator of muscle damage) possibly by promoting an anti-catabolic hormonal profile. BCAA supplementation during intense training may help minimize protein degradation, create an anabolic state and support protein synthesis which thereby leads to greater gains in precious fat-free mass.


14. OMEGA 3 ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS

Omega–3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because humans cannot make them; therefore, they must be obtained through the diet or supplementation. Fish oils are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids that offer numerous health benefits for everyone, as well as a variety of performance-enhancing effects, such as increasing muscle growth , improving strength and physical performance, reducing exercise-induced muscle damage and delayed-onset muscle soreness, combating negative immune effects of intensive training, strengthening bones, improving heart and lung functioning, and enhancing cognitive functioning. Since high-intensity exercise and weight training cause increases in inflammation and oxidation, reducing this response by supplementing with Omega 3 EFA’s may be beneficial in improving exercise recovery and achieving optimal results.


15. WHEY PROTEIN

Whey protein is a high quality protein with all the essential amino acids. Whey protein is also the richest known source of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) which allows for increased protein synthesis. Consumption of whey protein shortly after vigorous exercise can boost muscle recovery and hypertrophy, thus making it an important supplement for active individuals, individuals who exercise and professional athletes.
