What an athlete or a person who wants to start training need is a diet rich in carbohydrates or sugar, Giving importance to starchy food without refining, rich in complex sugar, which are an important source of vitamins and minerals, it also reduces the total intake of fat and proteins.

Refined sugar must be reduced: cakes, cookies, candy… because they have a high number of calories and fat. You must not starve, since mood is more powerful than training.

What really matters is the amount of carbohydrates in the diet.

Food rich in carbohydrates:

  • Whole grain cereal: rice
  • Flour and derivatives: bread, spaghetti
  • Nuts: fig, chestnut
  • Fresh fruits
  • Legumes: lentils, chickpeas
  • Fresh or frozen vegetables: peas, lentils

It has been proved that it is ideal to consume around 500 g daily (or from 8 to 10 g per kilo you have) of carbohydrates, but this represents some problems: In a regular diet of 3000 Kcal only 300g of carbohydrates are consumed, so you by consuming a little bit more you can get up to the 500 g.

Nowadays, it is advisable that carbohydrates compound a 55-60% of the total amount of energy, so it is not a problem to eat to be healthy and in shape (except for hypocaloric diets).

Proteins must be a 10-15% of the daily calories, though there are differences regarding this. As long as you feel ok and they provide you with energy everything is fine. If you are a vegetarian you must eat your legumes, grains and take vitamins and aminoacids in different forms.
