Appropriate dietary habits can improve physical performance and recovery from exercise through well-chosen and individually planned nutritional strategies. It is important to focus on the amount of the energy needs in the athlete, the type, amount and time of nutritional intake and fluid to maintain and promote optimum health and adaptation to training.

When we consider that the only way for our body to obtain energy and nutrients is through food, it is easy to understand the importance of nutrition in sport. In this way what we eat will determine not only quantity but also energy and nutritional quality.

Taking into account that the athlete’s work tool is his own body and that his sports performance is influenced by his nutritional status, proper nutrition and adapted to the sporting goals becomes essential.
