One of the most important factors to improve and maintain the quality of life is physical activity. It improves our health in many ways. One of the most important tasks that we owe to the activity is the fact that it intensifies fat burning. During the effort, the energy demand of the body changes, so it is important to plan meals so that the diet with effort is an integral part of a comprehensive approach to weight loss.
Training – meal planning
Beginning regular exercises, assuming an individual training plan, time, length and time of effort – meal planning becomes a necessity. It is recommended to eat a meal within 1-3 hours before the workout – which prevents the feeling of fullness during intense exercise.
Consuming meals before training is just as important as eating meals after exercise. It is certainly not advisable to avoid meals during this period because of the important role of nutrients in shaping our fitness and physical endurance.
Depending on the level of training, various forms of post-workout regeneration are recommended. Carbohydrates play a significant role here. If you are exercising not very intensively, it is recommended to consume a meal rich in complex carbohydrates with a low, medium glycemic index during the 2 hours after training (glycemic index describes the effect of food on the blood glucose level, i.e. the higher the IG index, the faster the given product raises the level of glucose in the blood). We use a ready IG list here. Numerous studies also confirm that meals with a low and medium glycemic index in combination with a protein are more effective in regenerating the body. Here are some suggestions for what to eat after training
Whole-grain sandwich with tunakiem / chicken / curd + vegetables
Potatoes / pasta with tuna + vegetables
Whole-grain pasta with curd + fruits / vegetables
Training – When to exercise?
One of the most common questions asked to a dietitian in people planning to start physical activity is „when is the best exercise to burn the most body fat?” – there is no definite answer, however. The amount and rate of fat burning depends on many factors, mainly on the type, time of effort, endurance of the body and time capabilities.
If you are a person starting an adventure with slimming, you want to get an attractive figure, you must realize that nothing will contribute to achieving your dream figure like a combination of physical activity and a properly balanced diet. Diet, of course, will contribute to the loss of fat, but the effort accelerates its burning and shapes our figure.
