Nutritionist James McKillop promotes good nutritional practices for all

Very active people will notice the effects of poor nutrition much faster than those who take things slower. If you are an athlete, good nutrition is very important for effective training and for performing at your best. You can feel confident that all of your energy, fluid, and protein needs will easily be met by adopting a plant-based diet.

A carbohydrate-rich eating style is beneficial for everyone, but for those who exercise, there are added reasons to pay attention to this nutrient. Carbohydrate is available as glucose in the blood and as glycogen from muscle storage sites, and is the main fuel utilized during high-intensity work—either exercise or play.

“If you eat well, you are more inclined to be active, and if you are more active, you are inclined to eat well,” said nutritionist James McKillop.
