Maximising energy and fighting fatigue in athletes

Fatigue is common to everyone.

You don’t have to be an athlete to feel the symptoms of:

  • Fuel depletion
  • Low blood glucose (hypoglycaemic)
  • Dehydration

In many cases simply changing your eating habits and adjusting your meal and snack  quality and timing can improve energy levels, physical and mental performance.

Often athletes (and people in general) unwittingly restrict their food intake in the hope of losing weight. However if this is not well managed it can increase the risk of developing  Eating Disorders and  Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S), conditions that can lead to a decline in mental and physical health.

If you would like to know more see this fact sheet from Sports Dietitians Australia about these conditions and if would like to have your own energy and nutrient assessment and a plan to maximise performance then contact me today.
