WHY IS SPORTS NUTRITION SO IMPORTANT?
A good diet won’t turn you into Superman but it will make sure that you play to the best of your ability throughout the whole match because:
- Energy stores will be high enough to last the full 90 minutes
- Concentration will be better
- There will be less of a chance of getting injured
How tired you are, depends not only on your fitness but also on what foods and fluids you have taken. Scientific studies show that players who eat a good diet for energy run longer, sprint more, keep their concentration longer, and are less likely to get injured. Players at club and academy level are increasingly playing with the benefit of a good diet. It is really easy to eat well.
