Nutrition Tip: Nutrient Timing of Fats
Failing to plan is a plan to fail.
Athletes who plan their meals and snacks for competition will have an advantage over their competitors.
It's important to focus on nutrient timing a.k.a the best time to eat protein, carbs, and fats for athletes.
The focus today will be FATS.
Reminder: 20-35% of calorie intake per day should come from fats, mostly from plant-based
fats along with a smaller portion coming from animal based fats.
When to eat fats:
Pre Game/Training Meal: Consume 20-35% of calories in this meal from healthy fats
30-60 minutes Prior to Competition/Training: Limit fat - can cause GI upset
During: @MammaChia Squeezes is what we recommend at Carbon Athletics during competition/training. These sequeezes are in a gel form so they are absorbed very quickly and are high in omega-3 fatty acids quickening muscle recovery
Recovery Meal: Consume 20-35% of calories on in this meal from healthy fats
