exercise meal guidelines
Find foods you like and easy to eat but avoid those fatty foods and avoid large portions of protein rich food e.g. meat cheese eggs etc. prior to exercise.
change your routine before any of the tiring activities. If you need to make changes
to you diet, try out new foods and drinks in the course of training.
Breakfast type meals are a good and easy way to take the right amount of carbohydrates in without having large plates of pasta or rice. Here are a few meal suggestions below:
Scrambled / poached eggs served on 3 thick slices of toast with butter (not too
much) or low fat spread. Plus a large glass of fruit juice.
After training you will need to replenish your muscle stores. These are some suggested ideas:
slices of malt or raisin bread and a banana
Tuna fish (canned or brine) with a small amount of low calorie salad cream. Add canned sweet corn or salad for extra fibre.
Peanut butter and mashed banana
Cottage cheese or a low fat soft cheese e.g. Philadelphia light
Lean roast meats e.g. harm / pork - cut off visible fat. Cooked chicken/ turkey (remove all the skin before eating)
Bacon, lettuce and tomato - chose lean bacon and a little low calorie mayonnaise.
and salad - half fat cheese or medium fat continental such as Edam.
