Descriere

Nutrition for Swimmers should be used as a guide for families on what to eat and when to eat it, and specifically focuses on eating guidelines around swimming training and competition programs.

All children who participate in the sport of swimming can greatly benefit from sports nutrition. As swimming is based on strength, power, endurance and agility, a swimmer can eat a tailored diet based on their training and competition requirements.

As well as the benefits an athlete will enjoy from improving their sports nutrition habits, adolescence is also a great time to introduce and reinforce good overall nutritional habits for the future years.

Introduction

All children who participate in the sport of swimming can greatly benefit from sports nutrition. As swimming is based on strength, power, endurance and agility, a swimmer can eat a tailored diet based on their training and competition requirements.

As well as the benefits an athlete will enjoy from improving their sports nutrition habits, adolescence is also a great time to introduce and reinforce good overall nutritional habits for future years. The promise of an effect on performance and encouragement from significant others, is usually enough for an adolescent to make a change and sustain this.

Sports nutrition is not restricted to the competition environment. Ensuring that an athlete consumes the right food and fluid before, during and after training will also help maximise their energy levels, provide them with the fuel that they require, and provide the essential nutrients for growth, development and performance on a day to day basis.

Sports nutrition is the principle of tailoring specific food and fluid requirements to an athlete in order to maximise physical performance.

It is not just the elite athlete who benefits from sports nutrition. The junior, age group and recreational athlete can improve their overall health and performance by adjusting both what they consume, and when they consume it.

Sports nutrition is a rapidly developing field with plenty of research produced every year.

While recommended guidelines are available, every athlete is an individual and these guidelines may need to be adjusted.

This book will introduce the baseline diet with information on what foods are important for the adolescent swimmer and what they should be consuming.

It then focuses on sport specific nutrition strategies for before, during and after training and competitions, including advice on the use of water and sports drinks for hydration.

There are a number of daily meal ideas including recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as advice on snacks in between meals.

If there is one area that many parents like support, it is around the provision of snacks at all times of the day. Many different snack ideas including ones based on bread, biscuits, fruit and vegetables are provided.

The final chapter provides parents and swimmers with a fantastic visual reference for meals and snack ideas that will assist the whole family.
