They are the future champions!
Having a young athlete at home is never easy. As a parent, you are trying to help your youngster to achieve a balance between classes and sports, which makes it even harder! However, one important element goes missing in the middle, and that is food! Most kids and teens fulfill their energy needs mainly through snacks and unhealthy meals from the school cafeteria, or simply skip a meal! This disturbance in nutritional pattern, especially during that age where growth is at its peak, results in many problems like lack of concentration, weight fluctuation, fatigue and so much more. In addition, some are required to increase their weight too fast, and others are asked to reduce their weight. So, the stress put by the gym teacher or the coach on this young population to maintain an ideal weight for the type of sports they play affects their eating behavior. So, how can you help? Visit us with your champion so we can structure a balanced meal plan that will keep them healthy and energized and help them in maintaining the appropriate weight and optimal energy level for the sports they play.
It's never too late to stay in the game!
Indeed age is just a number, but we should take in consideration the physiological changes that happen to our bodies as we age. One remarkable change is the decline in oxygen consumption which results from the decreased cardiovascular function, weakened respiratory ability and loss of musculoskeletal strength. Aging is also associated with a noticeable decrease in the metabolic rate leading to weight disturbance. However, engaging in a physical activity will definitely reduce these physiological changes if only it was combined with the appropriate fuel. A proper nutrition can ensure excellent performance and weight control, enhances recovery from aggressive workouts and protects against heart diseases, cancer and osteoporosis. So, your nutritional needs will indeed change if you decide on resuming or engaging in a certain physical activity at an older age. Together, we can tailor a healthy diet plan that provides you with the level of energy required for the type of physical activity you are planning to do.
