Currently, the world has plenty of research on sports nutrition, the influence of certain products and substances in the physical fitness and performance athletes.
Power athletes is very different from human nutrition, not related to the sport. Athletes consume on average three times more calories, more often observe different diets, more strictly related to the preparation of diets and diet planning. You have to understand that diet and a diet made up can not make do not train the athlete in the Olympic champion, but the importance of healthy food can not be underestimated.
The diet of an athlete should be drawn up with some guidelines:
A. When selecting products should take into account the contents of sporting activities (active training, preparation for a competition, competition, recovery period).
Two. Meals should be balanced and takes into account the peculiarities of the sport and the intensity of stress. Between the amount of essential nutrients, vitamins and trace elements necessary to maintain a balance.
Three. In drawing up the diet should be taken into account the individual characteristics of the athlete: gender, age, physiological, metabolic characteristics, state of the gastrointestinal tract and other organs, the presence of disease, tastes and eating habits.
4. Food intake should be adequate training and competition regime.
Often intense periods of active training and competition eating athletes do not meet elementary standards of nutrition nutrients.
All foods are divided into six major groups, it is important to know when preparing the menu and selecting courses to meet the needs of athletes:
• milk, cheese, dairy products: cheese, yogurt, buttermilk, yogurt;
• meat, poultry, fish, eggs and products made from them;
• flour, bakery products, cereals, sugar, pasta, pastries, potatoes;
• fats;
• Vegetables;
• fruits and berries.

Meat and fish dishes are better absorbed by the body when they eat with vegetables.

It is recommended to include food in sufficient fruits and vegetables that are easily digested, as well as supplying the body with carbohydrates, minerals and some vitamins.

Diet should be given the fact that during the high physical activity lost a lot of energy and fluids, which, in turn, negatively affects the physical condition of the athlete.
In general, athletes are the most preferred so-called fractional power, ie, eating small meals 5-6 times a day.
The most favorable for the meal is the morning from 8.00 to 11.00. Some athletes give up breakfast, and thereby provoke the occasional use of food, resulting in reduced efficiency and increased body fat. If the athlete is under "sgonke 'weight, it is in any case should not start a low-calorie diet with breakfast, for this purpose is better suited lunch or dinner. Breakfast, which contains a sufficient amount of nutrients to avoid such a dangerous physical condition of the "snacks" throughout the day. If the first training accounts for the morning, breakfast should be fairly easy. After the training necessary to remedy the lack of fluids and nutrients in the body, so at this time the diet should consist of fruit juice or milk drinks. A full breakfast can be eaten after a 1.5 h after training. It may consist of oatmeal, bran bread, yogurt and fruit.

Before the match athletes should eat no sooner and no later than 5 hours to digest large quantities of food for 3 hours to digest food, caloric content of not less than 600 calories for 1 h to digest liquid food, in less than an hour to receive snack.
After the physical and emotional surge it is important to use a sufficient number of carbohydrates as glycogen in the muscle tissue to be the most rapid recovery after athletic exercises. In the first half hour an athlete should be taken with food at least 150 g carbohydrate intake, followed by the same amount of a substance after 5 h of carbohydrate consumption after the event is important for normal recovery forces and the ability of a fairly rapid return to the training regime. The most harmless source of carbohydrates are fruit juices, fresh fruit and vegetables, unmilled cereals and should be included in the diet of an athlete after at least 6 hours after the event.
