Ski Nutrition - Top Up

Do you know what a Calorie is?

A Calorie is a unit of energy, it requires 1 calorie to heat 1 gram of water to 1 degrees centigrade....

So you need to eat and regularly....

Without plenty of good quality food you're going to lose focus, get dizzy and make clumsy movements.

You will burn lots of Calories when it's colder as well as when you increase your ski activity / pace, that's obvious... but people just don't feed enough!

Proteins, Carbs, Electrolytes, Vitamins and Minerals.

Set yourself up with a good breakfast.

Start with some fresh fruit. Then enjoy some porridge and a banana, a bagel, 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, a banana, maybe a bit of dark chocolate. Ensure you stay correctly 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.
