Athletes have to constantly be at their best, and not only are they in constant competition with their peers, they’re often competing with themselves too, striving to better their own time and performance. Their fitness levels have to be tiptop and being at their very best is a must. This means placing emphasis on their diet, training and wellbeing.
The goal of any athlete is of course peak performance and their diets need to be high-protein and high-carbohydrate. PurelyB’s Nutrition and Fitness Expert Dave Catudal shares a few of his very own healthy recipes that are packed with nutrition; perfect for the training athlete. Dave demonstrates how simple it is to prepare quick, simple and nutritious meals with his smoothie, breakfast bowl and a ‘wake me up’ shot.
