Sports Nutrition

Canadians of all ages are more physically active today compared to just a few years ago. Aside from heredity and training of the body and mind, no single factor influences athletic performance more than diet.

The ideal diet for an athlete should be high in carbohydrates, low in fat and moderate in protein.

This can be achieved by enjoying a wide variety of foods: emphasizing whole grain products, fruits and vegetables and by choosing lower fat dairy products, leaner meats and foods prepared with little or no fat.

Carbohydrate foods are an important part of healthy eating and are the main source of energy for most people. Include more whole grains breads and cereals, rice, pasta, vegetables and fruit as well as beans, peas and lentils in your meal plans.
