Protein has numerous roles in the body including development and repairing of body tissues such as muscle fibers, forming enzymes, hormones, blood cells, etc. Proteins are made up of building blocks called amino acids. These simpler blocks regulate various body chemicals and hormones. There are twenty amino acids altogether, nine of which are termed essential. This means that they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained from food sources. The 20 amino acids can be linked in thousands of different ways to form thousands of different proteins, each with a unique function in the body. Protein may also increase levels of fullness and boost the metabolic rate. The nine essential amino acids are:

  • Histidine*
  • Leucine
  • Lysine
  • Isoleucine
  • Methionine
  • Phenylalanine
  • Threonine
  • Tryptophan
  • Valine

(* Is not listed as essential for adults, but is very essential for infants)

Fats are another essential part of healthy nutrition. It is important to have a full understanding of the differences between each type of fat and which are considered “good fats” i.e. those that are needed to nourish your brain, heart, nerves and hormones. It is also imperative not overindulge and surpass the recommended daily intake. Fats give the sense of feeling full after we eat them. Fats impart flavor to various foods as well. Here are the type of fats that affects your body’s metabolism as well as how much of each type is consumed:

  • Polyunsaturated Fats
  • Monounsaturated Fats
  • Trans Fats
  • Saturated Fats

 

Carbohydrates are commonly referred to as sugars and often make up more than 50 % of the dietary energy derived from food. Carbohydrates are to be eaten before training to help fuel the workout and spare the breakdown of muscle tissue. Consequently, relatively few carbohydrates become stored as body fat. Carbohydrates are consumed immediately after training to refill muscles with glycogen before they are used to increase body fat storage. Carbs consumed before and after training will protect the body against muscle breakdown and support glycogen levels, ultimately helping the body to grow. When carbs are performing an anabolic role (supporting growth) they are not making you fat. There are two types of carbohydrate:

  • Complex Carbohydrates
  • Simple Carbohydrates
Intensity of session: Grams carb/kg body weight grams carb/lbs. body weight
Low intensity (below 1 hour/day): 3-5 g 1.5-2.5
Moderate (between 1-3 hours/d): 5-7 g 2.3-3.2

 

If you are performing a low – moderate training session that is one – two and a half hours, you want to target 30 to 60 grams of carbohydrate (120 to 240 calories) per hour. That is one – two gels or 16 to 32 oz. of a sports drink per hour (if you have eaten a pre-session snack/meal). For example, the average age group athlete would be targeting 10km – 15km training run or 40km – 100km TT Bike.

 

Intensity of session: Grams carb/kg body weight grams carb/lbs. body weight
Endurance (3-5 hours/d): 6-10 g 2.5-4.5
Extreme (6+ hours/d): 8-12 g 3.5-5.5

 

If you are performing an endurance session, 60 to 90 grams and target different sources of carbohydrates (such as sports drink, banana, energy waffles) per hour. Consuming the higher end of the range (90 g, as compared to 60 g) is associated with greater stamina and endurance. For example, the average age group athlete would be targeting Ironman distance races and Ultra marathon.
