Nutrition is as vital to your sports performance as your training. Putting the wrong fuel into your body, will not get you results. A custom nutrition plan will make the long hours of training more effective and will enable you to recover faster.

“Lesley is friendly, professional and informative. I am thrilled with the level of detail in relation to my old food diary, my new meal plan and my complex nutritional needs. My consultation with Lesley has really empowered me to be smart about my own nourishment and I’m already reaping the benefits of her guidance.”

The basic principles of sports nutrition

When it comes to planning your nutrition for sports performance, there are many factors to consider. These factors that all need to work together to ensure your body is nourished to support muscle growth and appropriately planned at a macronutrient level to aid recovery. 

  • Healthy Eating
  • Hydration
  • Timing of Meals & Snacks
  • Carbohydrate
  • Protein

If you are not getting this right, it will have a massive impact on your results. The basic principles are the same if you are training for a 10k to competing at Olympic level. If this sounds like something you are interested in discussing with Lesley Reid Nutritional Health, then get in touch.
