CA helps and supports a wide range of people and athletes with their nutritional needs. Depending on your requirements and experience, CA's nutritionist Matt will introduce you to the first phase of our plan to ensure the following three aspects are on your radar and once you are consistent in their application he will move you on to the second phase of support
Phase one of support - daily score, protein, food choices and hydration
Daily Score: this is your long term tracking
Every day: 1-10, can include 0.5 BUT can’t use number 7
Preferably 30-60mins after waking
This is for YOU - it can be completely private or consult with the Commando Active team
What does the daily score include?
Sleep quality and quantity, physical feelings, training, work, emotional, personal, gut health, mental acuity.
Phase one food education starts with food quality, protein and hydration - click tabs on the left for info and tips
Home prepared vs eating out/ordering - Ask yourself do you know where you food is coming from and are you predominantly preparing your own meals....
Food preparation: the 7 P's ‘Proper Planning and Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance’ or ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’
Dirty Dozen - meaning buy organic
Sweet Bell Peppers
Also: Green beans and kale are moving up on the most sprayed list as well.
Clean 15 - These are not sprayed as heavily and have a tougher fibrous skin so buy non organic
Protein - Underrated in the endurance based and adventure racing communities
- Muscle and cell repair (muscular and cellular)
- Provide us with a quick release of energy when carbohydrate intake is low.
- Satiety (feeling full)
- Protein is involved in the production of blood, enzymes, hormones and ultimately the energy currency for the body.
- Nutrient and oxygen transport to the cells
- Prescription: Between 1.5 grams and 2 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight. This will vary depending on body type and exercise levels
30 ml per kg body weight: ideal for hormonal regulation and stress management. This will vary person to person.
Dehydration: major role in toxicity control, gut health and muscle function.
Most critical nutrient for human growth and development. The brain is composed of 95% water, blood is 82% water, the lungs are nearly 90% water
A quick tip weigh yourself before and after training sessions or races roughly 1g = 1ml, so take back on with water 120% of what you have lost. For example if you have lost a kg, take on 1.2 L.
This should be accompanied by electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium) in order to help you retain the water, this can be achieved through food or electrolyte solutions.
