Fitness and Sports Nutrition

We've all heard that "You are what you eat." But this old axiom tells only part of the story. While correct nutrition is essential to a proper fitness training program, it's also critical to consider HOW you eat. The important points to keep into consideration are meal frequency, macronutrient ratios, specificity to athletic objectives, and periodizing caloric intake. The right diet will optimise your energy levels and help your body recover more effectively. Making smart choices about the type, timing and quantity of food to eat can all play a role in realising your best.

The description of fitness is beyond being able to run long distance or lift heavy loads at the gym. Fitness is more than just a question of listing activities you do or for how long you do them. In scientific terms physical fitness is defined as "a set of attributes that people have or achieve that relates to the ability to perform physically".
