Good nutrition is crucial for peak performance.
Without plenty of good quality food you're going to lose focus...
Complex carbohydrates and a nutrient rich diet is essential for good skiing. Such a diet will keep you going for longer and in turn power your performance.
You need sufficient calories... Quantities required increase or decrease depending on what you're doing... (excess calorie intake is why so many people these days are obese) so tune in to your body...
Get your nutrients from a good mix of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water.
Set yourself up with a good breakfast.
Start with some fresh fruit. Then enjoy some porridge and a banana, wholemeal bread, an egg, smoked salomon, greens. Top it off with a glass of orange juice and green tea / tea or coffee.
On the ski slopes take plenty of energy, pack dried fruit, an apple, maybe a bit of dark chocolate for a treat. Ensure you stay hydrated.
Lunch could consist of fresh fruit, hot soup and salad if you don't want to over eat, or maybe a good plate of Spaghetti and a generous mixed salad.
Breakfast - Porridge / Banana. Egg on the side.
Keep hydrated with water and fruit.
Have a large salad and soup for lunch.
Stop for a Coffee Break - Live a little!
