A MARTIAL ARTIST NEEDS PROPER NUTRITION​

Martial Artist Nutrition

One key factor for top performance in martial arts is not only training hard but also taking care of the internal man. Nutrition is certainly top of mind in today’s society. People are becoming more concerned about their health and what they put into their bodies.

Most people think of fresh corn as a vegetable, and to some extent, they’re right; it’s plump, juicy, and full of fiber and Vitamin A. Sadly, it’s also extremely starchy, and better thought of as a grain instead. Imagine corn tortillas and cornbread, instead of an ear of juicy corn, right off the stalk.

Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your body.

Eat a diet of mostly plant-based foods, with a little animal protein and healthy monounsaturated oils. This type of diet will provide your system with the nutrients, protein, and essential fatty acids that you need to be healthy. A healthy variety of plant-based foods also gives your body the fiber it needs for good health and to maintain regularity.

Plan ahead for healthy nutrition. Keep healthy snacks on hand so that you don’t make a poor choice, on the spur of the moment when you get hungry. If the well-balanced and nutritional choice is the easier one, it becomes a habit to pick that option instead of putting forth the effort to locate an unhealthy item.

Keep a ceramic or glass kettle of pure water with a bit of honey and a freshly squeezed lemon or lime warming on the back of your stove during the winter months. You can drink cup after cup of this healthy beverage to keep cold and chill at bay and provide you with all the pure water you need to stay healthy and strong.

Don’t chide them for doing this, or they may have a negative impression of the food and refuse to eat it. Help them to get a grasp on the color, texture, and smell of the food.

It’s typically a poor idea to eat carbohydrates right before bedtime. Carbohydrates are chock-full of sugar and will immediately be converted into energy when they’re digested by your body.

As the beginning of this blog discussed, eating habits have gained a lot more awareness in recent years as people have become more concerned about their health and how they eat. Making correct nutrition decisions can be tough. Apply the advice of this article and be on your way to improving your nutrition.
