SPORTS NUTRITION

Nutrition & Sports - The Winning Connection.

Whether you are on a fitness drive, a first-time marathoner, a keen amateur cyclist, or a professional athlete, MEALpyramid can support your sporting efforts by providing personalised sports nutrition recommendations to help you meet your training and performance goals.

All sports are becoming increasingly competitive. More and more stress is being placed on how well you perform. To reach your highest potential, all of your body systems must be perfectly tuned. Nothing is more important to your well-being and ability to perform than good nutrition.

Sports nutrition is a complicated topic for those seeking a balance between satisfying meals and peak performance. Eating the right foods helps you maintain desirable body weight, stay physically fit, and establish optimum nerve-muscle reflexes. Without the right foods, even physical conditioning and expert coaching aren't enough to push you to your best. Good nutrition must be a key part of your training program if you are to succeed.

Sports Nutrition can be divided into several stages:

- Nutrition for a particular sport along with individualized goal - Nutrition for endurance or strength training - Nutrition for the actual competition: pre competition, post competition & during the competition - Hydration for each sport

Making a MEALpyramid for a sports person involves specification of each category. Your sport defines your food. So, if you categorize yourself as a sports person and you want to get that winning point on the field, MEALpyramid will help you achieve the goal off the field.

MUSCLE GAIN

Not only for bodybuilders!

Muscle gain is the requirement not only for extremely thin individuals or body builders, but for every individual, male or female, who is looking for the perfect tone, the perfect look & the perfect body.

But how much muscle is required?

For a lean individual the answer is to gain muscles to look healthy & fit, whereas for a body builder, muscle gain is the definition of his profession.

Seems like everyone at the gym is doing it: filling up on protein to bulk up those biceps. But it's a misconception. Eating extra protein actually doesn't do much toward boosting your muscle mass and strength. In fact, medical research shows that consuming too much protein -- more than 30% of your total daily caloric intake -- could actually harm your body.

Thus, a precise triangle of Nutrition, Exercise followed by Rest & Recovery will provide you with: - Muscle strength - Power - Agility - And the desired body image

These are the key words for the MEALpyramid of Muscle gain. Get yourself the core requirements, and the triangle of your pyramid will provide you with the much deserved results.

FAT LOSS

There's more to you than what meets the eye!!

There’s a million reasons why people fail to lose fat, but somewhere at the top of that list is just a fundamental lack of understanding of the scientifically proven principals of how to lose fat.

Your weight is a balancing act, but the equation is simple: If you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight. And if you eat fewer calories than you burn, you lose weight.

Simple, right? Then why is weight loss so hard?

All too often, we make weight loss much more difficult than it needs to be with extreme diets that leave us cranky and starving, unhealthy lifestyle choices that undermine our dieting efforts, and emotional eating habits that stop us before we get started. But there’s a better way!

You can lose weight without feeling miserable. By making smart choices every day, you can develop new eating habits and preferences that will leave you feeling satisfied—and winning the battle of the bulge.

While there is no “one size fits all” solution to permanent healthy weight loss, MEALpyramid provides you with a tailor made healthy eating routine to suite your requirements and achieve your weight loss goals.

KIDS NUTRITION

It’s never too early to focus on your kid’s nutritional needs.

The real question is: How and when can they get what they require? Whether they’re grabbing breakfast before school or choosing a snack after sports practice, make healthy choices with MEALpyramid.

Healthy foods are essential to a child's growth and development. The Five Food Groups are the building blocks of the Food Pyramid for kids. Their body needs these nutritious foods to grow and stay healthy. By broadening the menu and providing a variety of tasty yet healthy foods, you not only ensure better nutrition for your child, but also encourage better eating habits to carry on through life.

MEALpyramid, your source for scientifically-based health and nutrition information you can trust to help your child grow healthy.

THERAPEUTIC DIETS

Many health conditions are treated and controlled by what you eat.

Good nutrition is vital to good health, disease prevention & cure. A wealth of nutrition information is at your finger tips, from diet books to newspaper articles; everyone seems to have an opinion about what you should be eating. But the information you gather has to have its authenticity. A diet for an existing medical condition or a diet for preventing one, in both the cases your diet will be very special.

Even if you are free of diseases there are chances of you having a risk factor. Which means a certain percentage of your body is inclined towards getting a specific disease just because your parents had it. Get yourself analysed from someone certified.

Just because you're not sick, doesn’t mean you're healthy. Whether prevention or cure, get yourself the correct advice at MEALpyramid.
