Eat like world-class athletes


Do you believe pasta and sports drinks are key to sports performance?

If so, you’re in for a big surprise.

World-class athletes are changing their eating habits

More and more of the world’s top performers are throwing away the outdated “pasta and sports drinks” advice.

The Australian cricket team (who just won the Ashes a few days ago), The Norwegian football club Strømsgodset (champions in 2013) and the famous basketball team LA Lakers are just some of the many examples of top performers who are changing their eating habits.

And it’s not only athletes who are making changes. Some of the worlds most respected minds in sports science are changing their eating habits too.

Tim Noakes, a famous South African sports science professor, have admitted that he gave the wrong dietary advice for years. Check out this 2 minute video that includes Tim Noakes and many world-class athletes.

Peter Brukner, Head of Sports Medicine and Sports Science at Liverpool Football Club and Team Doctor for the Australian cricket team, recently did a presentation on how he has fundamentally changed his eating advice (and lost his fat belly in the process). Check that out too.

So, if pasta and sports drinks isn’t the answer to top performance, what is?

Change your eating habits too


I’ve tried to summarise the eating advice of the above top performers and sports scientists in this post (beware that these people don’t eat according to eating habit #5 for obvious reasons).

Even if you “already know the best way to eat” spend five minutes checking out the article and videos above. You won’t regret it.

Good luck and enjoy the ride!

    What you eat becomes a part of you. It is transformed in the substance your body is made of: fat, protein, sugars. You INCORPORATE what you eat.

    Eating is something fundamental. You can change your appearance, you can change your health status, you can even change your mind (think of substances, that enter the brain…!).

    That’s why I don’t understand, why people care so less about eating. About their bodies. I mean, about the envelope of their spirit! The only thing that prevents us from living forever is our shell, the body.

    Eating good means eating simple. Eating “clean”: unprocessed food. Natural food.
    Eating simple doesn’t mean that it is easy! You have to avoid industrial sugar to feel fit, to feel lean and healthy. It is harder in the beginning than you think.
    Just try it out. Give it a chance just for 30 days and you will see how your body and even your thoughts change.

    Simple: no carbohydrates (no bread, no noodles, no pizza, no softdrinks or any other sugar). Just vegetables, fruits and meat.

    Since I do that, combined with cardio and athletic sports and ballet, my body changed completely. I feel more beautiful, stronger and healthier than ever. And also happier :-)

    Good luck to everyone.

    The issue comes down to intent. Intent to produce and distribute tainted supplements void of concern for your risks to consumers are several criminals requiring serious prosecution. The concept of intent has several definitions and sophisticated to succinctly define for the lay person. The legal definition available on the web mainly because it concerns intentionally selling tainted supplements means criminal intent. Criminal intent is named mens rea, which describes a criminal or wrongful purpose. Mens rea is Latin for “guilty mind.” In criminal law, it is considered one of the necessary components of a crime. If a person innocently causes harm, then he/she lacks mens rea. Under this concept, an accused defendant mustn’t be criminally prosecuted if intent can not be established.


    They may often violate what the law states and the rights of others. They will often lie, practice deception, try to manipulate, and often take part in illegal activities because they’re can not fulfill responsibilities to family, work or school in an adaptive manner. Hence, those who suffer from antisocial personality disorder may aim to victimize others for personal gain and lack empathy for all those they harm within their pursuit form of hosting benefit. Some suggest many felons serving prison sentences would fit the requirements for antisocial personality disorder if this type of population of criminals were evaluated by psychologists or psychiatrists. The people of individuals intentionally tainting their nutritional supplements void of concern for that risks to consumers would probably meet criteria with this dangerous disorder.
