Today, everyone can easily find online tons of information regarding healthy eating habits, super-foods, tips and tricks on how to build your own healthy diet plan and much more. However, not every “eating rule” works for everyone in the same way. The nutritional values a certain foods has, will most certainly never act the same in two different people.

 

With this said, it is crucial for you, as a triathlete, to learn all about your specific needs. You see, without working on the finer details of your activity and sport you can never put into practice any worthy eating habit that could boost your overall performance.

 

Now that you know how good eating habits work as essential components to make you achieve progress when dealing with training routines suitable for triathlons, let’s have a look at 3 most important habits you need to incorporate into your daily routine in order to upgrade your triathlon status to the next level:

 

 

Try to avoid sugar and any type of processed food

 

Yes, you read that well. It is extremely important for you, as a pro triathlete to be extra careful when it comes to consuming any sugary or processed foods. You see, this is considered to be one of the worst components a normal person can take and the massive increase of sugar in the last generation’s diet is becoming a real threat. Can you please make yourself a favor and remove from your grocery check list any sugary beverage, candy or processed food?

Proteins are your biggest friend

 

Keep in mind that the foundation of every healthy and qualitative diet always includes protein. Try to incorporate this element in every single meal along with healthy fats. Choose a healthy protein source like meat, eggs, milk/yogurt and accompany them with good, healthy fats such as nuts, avocados, seeds, etc. to give the right support to the meat/fish you’re eating. Eat plenty of protein and fats in order to have all the necessary calories to burn while training. Without the calorie support, chances for you to regress and damage your muscles and body are quite high.

 

 

Always, always eat breakfast

 

You cannot call yourself a healthy individual if you skip the most important meal of the day; breakfast. It is the foundation of any successful daily eating! Try to make it the biggest meal of your day. Always incorporate protein and fibers such as oatmeal, nuts etc.

 

Don’t wait for a structured framework to make you follow rules and make eating decisions. With these tips in mind, you can easily follow a healthy, well balanced diet. It will keep your healthy while working on making you a better, stronger endurance athlete instantly.
