FEEL THE PLANT POWER! BE THE POWER!
Athletes and other physically active people are always searching for an edge– a new technique, a training regimen, or an article of clothing that might help them shave minutes or seconds off their personal best time, lead to strength gains necessary to compete at a higher level, or hasten recovery after a difficult training bout.
A diet very high in carbohydrates – starches, vegetables, and fruits – makes athletes – those living at the extremes of human performance – winners!
All knowledgeable scientists agree that for the best performance during prolonged exercise the best fuel for the body is carbohydrate. In practical terms, this means eating starches (rice, corn, potatoes, beans, pasta, bread), vegetables, and fruits – all of these plant foods contain 70% to 95+% of their calories as carbohydrate.
Eating your greens would also enhance sport performance. Nitrate is commonly found in diets rich in leafy green foods, like spinach and is important for the functioning of the human body, especially during exercising.
Basic nutritional needs do not change with an increase in activity. The same diet recommended for people applies to athletic people, too. To violate this basic truth results not only in horrific health, but also pitiful performance.
