WHY OUR SPORTS NUTRITION PROGRAMS IN BARCELONA?

A program provided by a sports nutritionist is one that is balanced and provides us with varied foods in quantities adapted to our personal requirements and conditions. The feeding of human beings consists of the nutrition of each cell. There are many ways that human beings have to feed or provide the body with essential substances for the maintenance of life. When we achieve the balance between the contribution of nutrients and the demand for them is when we reach the term health.

Today we know that athletes are people with special nutritional needs. Each sports modality and different training intensities require a specific diet to meet the energy needs.

Good nutritional planning cannot improve an improper training or a person’s physical shape, but improper nutrition of the athlete will make the performance of a well-trained person be adversely affected. Also, this will make subsequent recovery and from injury slower, and that the athlete is more susceptible to infections. However, we may ask: what are the foods or nutrients that we should use in the athlete’s nutritional program? This is something that only a sports nutritionist can answer.

A proper diet, in terms of quantity and quality of it in the pre, during and post (timing) training and competition is imperative providing the optimization of athletic performance. In addition, it allows us to choose a nutritional behavior more appropriate to the different types of physical activity and sport.

The energy intake of an athlete has to cover the caloric expenditure, both at rest and for the physical activity that the person has, and to allow him to maintain an adequate body weight so that the performance is optimal. The athlete’s diet has to supply enough energy to meet their needs, and must provide all the nutrients in adequate quantities, taking into account the individual characteristics and needs.

The first thing we do with the athlete to prepare a nutritional planning is an anamnesis or interview in which we consider the age, gender, body composition, eating habits, preferences and dislikes of food, etc..

Up next we carry out a 3-day dietary record (2 weekly and 1 holiday) to find out the person’s usual intake and calculate the approximate calories eaten throughout the day.

Then, by means of a record of physical activity, we must know the type of activities performed each day, hours, duration, volume of daily hours, intensities, holidays, etc. to calculate the energy expense per weekly activity that is done.

Next, the sports nutritionist performs the anthropometric protocol whose main objective is to assess the size, shape, proportion and composition of the athlete. Anthropometry is a tool that helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, also used to monitor nutritional, physical activity and surgical interventions. Such follow-ups may be transversal (single measurement) or longitudinal (various measurements over time), for example in athletes or sedentary persons.

Finally, we present a complete report of the body composition in which the results of the skin folds, body perimeters, fat mass, muscle mass and somatocarta (graphical analysis of the physical form) are shown with each reference value established individually for the athlete.

In addition, in our company we offer a nutritional coaching service. Professional coaching helps achieve results by accompanying, facilitating the resources, adequate perspective and the motivation necessary for the person to achieve the goal. It is a personal change that the person has to make from the current situation to reach the desired situation. Through the process of coaching, the person deepens their knowledge, increases their performance and improves their quality of life.
