Special Nutrition Requirements for Athletes

Its running time! Whether you are an experienced runner or a first-timer, excitement must be all over the place. Along with the type of clothes and shoes you need for a run, you also need to focus on something very important, your diet. Diet and nutrition have a direct impact on your performance.


The Miracle of Micronutrients

With protein and carbohydrates revolving around the 10K, we often forget to pay heed to the nutrients that are required in minute quantities. Micronutrients, as the name suggests, are nutrients needed in small quantities.


Fuelling Up the Right Way

Completing a marathon is a feat of strength and stamina that requires fuelling up at the right time in the right way. Hence, you require adequate nutrition to keep up your energy levels and perform the best.


Nutrition Before the Run

Did you know that taking care of your nutrition is as important as your training for the run? You need to fuel your body with the right type of foods and drinks to meet the nutritional requirements.1,2 Let’s help you plan your nutrition well and bring out your best.


Your intake during the Run

It’s the day when all your hard work is ready to pay off. Like from before the event, get it right by following the right nutrition even during the event. To avoid ‘hitting the wall’, it is important to follow a structured nutrition regimen that fuels you up before the run and keeps you going strong…


Keeping Hydrated

Keeping yourself hydrated is very important when you want to run the marathon. Proper hydration includes drinking adequate amount of water and electrolytes, which help maintain body temperature and also keep the muscles going. Obviously, you lose both when you sweat during the run.


Nutrition for Recovery Post Run

It is important to eat right after the running event. Go slow and begin with easy-to-digest carbohydrates within 30 minutes after the run. The sooner you consume carbohydrates, the more glycogen your body will produce, and the sooner your muscles will return to their normal state.


Special Foods to Hit the Mark

It is a well-known fact that food is an important factor to perform better and recover soon. However, you require some special foods that are ideal for energy, stamina and performance when you are participating in long runs like the 10K.


Busting some Myths

Our near and dear ones love giving us advice, which we may often want to believe to be true. However, in reality, these may just be plain myths with no substantial evidence.


Foods to Be Avoided

As a runner, you may be aware of the importance of good foods that provide you the right nutrition. However, it is equally important to know what foods can be harmful and how to best avoid them.


Nutrition for the First-Time Runners

Congratulations! You have finally decided to run your first 10K. Your first run is an exciting event; however, because the race day is near, it is important that you are well prepared.


Limit your Fats, Salts and Sugars!

Our taste buds love junk and processed foods, which are loaded with sugars, salts, trans fats and saturated fats. They may provide an initial surge of energy or palatability, but you will quickly experience a low after eating them, feeling an urge to eat more.


Portion Guidance for Athletes

Portion is the amount of food you choose to eat at one time. Portion Guidance helps you choose the right amount of food containing all the key nutrients in optimal proportions to perform well.


Supplements—Dos and Don’ts

While considering nutrition management for the 10K running, it doesn’t always stop with just the general food and water. In recent times, it has evolved to the usage of several supplements that offer instant outcomes.


Reading the Label

Making healthy food choices before the 10K is very important to be fit and properly fuelled. Have you ever faced the challenge in choosing the right food that fits into your diet? If so, we are here to help you make healthy food choices and get going.
