If I had to choose one word to start a conversation amongst a room of shy athletes it would be none other than ‘carbohydrates’. Majority of the people would probably tell you it’s all about timing, type and specific amounts of carbohydrates you consume. On the other hand, a few others may mention their new low carbohydrate, high fat, adequate protein diet. Why is the idea of your body running on other fuel sources such as fats instead carbohydrates becoming so popular and is there any science backed evidence behind this? Let’s investigate this further.
We have all heard about the importance of consuming protein for our health as protein is part of every cell in our bodies and is crucial for growing, repairing and replacing tissues1. But when it comes to protein and muscle growth and recovery, there is so much conflicting information regarding the amount of protein required, the type of protein as well as healthy sources of protein. All these factors play a role in your post-exercise recovery and muscle growth.
These days, everyone is looking for a quick fix. It’s therefore no wonder that when you walk into your local pharmacy you are overwhelmed with nutritional supplements including vitamins, minerals, fibre and even protein supplements. Most of us grab these supplements thinking that they will rectify all the shortcomings of our daily diets. But, just as the name suggests, supplements are meant to supplement a healthy diet, not to replace it.
As the new year approaches, and you prepare to start your new fitness plan, you might be thinking, what can I use to help me with post-exercise recovery?
Whether you’re an elite athlete, in your 80’s or suffered an injury, you may be at risk of cartilage damage. Cartilage has minimal ability to repair itself therefore it is important to explore preventative measures for degeneration.

When we speak about a person’s microbiome, we are using an umbrella term for the TRILLIONS (yes, trillions) of microorganisms that live in and on our body. One of the most interesting things that I have learnt recently is that exercise induces changes in gut microbiota and as a result, gut microbiota compositions vary between active and sedentary individuals. Given the well-known impact of gut health on our overall wellness, this provides yet another reason to get active1.
We know that elite athletes need to follow stringent dietary guidelines in order to perform at their best.
