Nutrition & exercise: facts and tips

What are the best times for meals?

When and what should I eat before exercising?

To help the body utilise all of its energy for your workout, you should eat the last meal up to 2-3 hours before your training. Easy-to-digest, low-fat and low-fiber foods are especially recommended. Fruit, for example, are a good and fast energy source. When combined with protein-rich products, such as curd cheese or lean meat, your body will ultimately already receive enough protein during your training.


Which nutrients are particularly important for regeneration after a high- intensity training session?

Nutrition plays a key role in regeneration. The body must receive enough calories, as well as macronutrients and micronutrients, so that it can fulfil all its functions completely, and so that its cells can adapt and regenerate. The "optimal" diet after a training session should include valuable proteins such as meat, fish, eggs, quark, sufficient carbohydrates, and plenty of fresh green vegetables.

Vitamin D3 is needed for normal calcium and bone metabolism, to increase mental performance, improve the immune system and promote an overall sense of well-being. Omega-3 fatty acids, often called fish oil, are considered essential fatty acids. They cannot be synthesised by the body itself, and should therefore be ingested daily through food.


How do I prevent acidosis?

I would like to clear up the myth of "over-acidification of the body". Because, by nature, our body cannot over-acidify at all – especially not through certain foods! The body regulates its pH by itself through its organs.
