Sports dietitian, Renee McGregor discusses the links between microbiome diversity and elite performance as well as timing your nutrition wisely.
Renee covers how the microbiome is affected by diet, exercise, lifestyle, sleep and genetics, so no two athletes will have the same microbiome.
Renee's 5 quick takeaways to maintain athletic performance:
- Have a diverse variety of foods going into your diet.
- Don't displace carbohydrates with fruit and vegetables but make sure that you get plenty of colours when you do eat fruit and veg.
- Think about the timing of nutrition.
- Don't forgot to hydrate.
- Make sure that you get good sleep.
