Role of Nutrition In Sports

  1. 1. ROLE OF NUTRITION IN SPORTS By : Avneet Oberoi
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Successful athletic performance is a combination of proper training and a sensible approach to nutrition. Sports nutrition is the study and practice of nutrition and diet as it relates to athletic performance. It is a science that provides and maintains food necessary for health, growth and physical performance Researchers suggests that athletes can benefit from nutrition education – increasing KAP i.e. knowledge, Attitude and practices (Abood et al, 2006).
  3. 3. GOALS OF SPORTS NUTRITION Optimal performance Fast recovery and mental clarity Injury prevention
  4. 4. CARBOHYDRATES  Carbohydrate provide energy for muscle contraction- smaller sugars Rest of the glucose is (glucose, fructose, galacto stored as glycogen in se) get absorbed and muscle and liver. provide energy Adequate carbohydrate intake prevents proteins from being used as energy. Carbohydrate depletion: Recommendation- Athletes in heavy training should have an intake of 6-10g/kg body weight to prevent daily carbohydrate and glycogen depletion (ADA, 2000). The amount required depends on : Athletes TDEE, type of sports, environmental condition etc.
  5. 5. Before exercise- serves 2 purpose:  Keeps the athlete from feeling hungry before exercise  Maintains optimal level of blood glucose for exercising muscles (ACSM, 2009)  Should provide 200-350 gm of carbohydrate, 3-4 hrs before the event. ◦ Eg- toast with jelly, baked potato, spaghetti +tomato sauce, cereal with milk etc.  During exercise- For exercise lasting longer than an hour, carb intake ensures availability of sufficient amount of energy during later stages of exercise and improves performance, maintains blood glucose level too. Form of carb is not important, some may have sports drink.
  6. 6.  Carb feeding doesn’t prevent fatigue, it delays it. After Exercise- immediate carb consumption is important. Delaying carb intake for too long will reduce muscle glycogen synthesis.  Recommendation- consume 100g of carb within 30 minutes maximize glycogen synthesis.  Consuming food immediately after exercise seems difficult. Therefore, sports drink rich in carb provides energy and helps in rehydration.
  7. 7. PROTEINS  Protein requirements remain contradictory.  Popular belief that additional protein increases strength and enhances performance, but research doesn’t support this.  Calories play an important role in protein sparing action and protein will be used if calories are insufficient.  Recommendations:  The average adult needs needs 0.8g/kg bw/d (Institute of Medicine, 2002)
  8. 8. FAT  Most concentrated source of energy.  Provides essential fatty acids- necessary for cell membranes, transport of fat soluble vitamins (ACSM, 2009)  Major fuel for light to moderate intensity exercise  Recommendations- athletes should consume 20-30% calories from fat.  1g fat = 9 kcal  High fat diets are associated with CVD, obesity, diabetes etc, delays gastric emptying, takes longer to digest, lead to nausea.).
  9. 9. FLUIDS Exercise and Sports Increases physiological and psychological well being (Gianetti et al, 2008). Water and electrolyte loss culminating in dehydration (Maughan and Shirreffs, 2010) Depleted Psycho-physiological function (Danci et al, 2009; Kataria et al, 2010).
  10. 10. DEHYDRATION HARMS DEHYDRATION PHYSIOLOGICAL FUNCTION COGNITION PSYCHO- EXERCISE PERFORMANCE PHYSIOLOGY INCREASE IN BODY INCREASED RISK OF MEMORY POOR INCREASE DECREASE TEMPERA EXERTION INJURY ATTENTION DNA HEART REACTION PREMATURE TURE DAMAGE TIME FATIQUE RATE
  11. 11. REHYDRATION Sustaining cognitive and physical performance (Osteoberg, 2010). Delay fatigue and thermal stress (Duvillard et al, 2004). Prevent dehydration related injuries and improves recovery time (Rodriquez et al, 2009). Therefore, fluid intake protocols have been recommended for athletes (ADA, 2000; SAI, ILSI & NIN, 2006; Lal, 2006).
  12. 12. HYDRATION GUILDELINES Before During After exercise- exercise- exercise- • consume • drink 250 ml • amount 500 ml of of equivalent to fluid • fluid every body weight • 1-2 hr before 15-20 min loss exercise (Position Statement ADA, 2000; SAI, ILSI and NIN, 2006; Lal, 2
  13. 13. STEPS FOR ADEQUATE HYDRATION  Be aware of sweat loss  1 kg water loss after exercise = 1 liter of water loss  Develop a conscious drinking pattern  What to drink  When to drink  How much to drink Before activity – plain cold water/ glucose- electrolyte drink During activity- glucose- electrolyte drink/ juice After activity- glucose- electrolyte drink juice continue till urine is pale, 1gm wt loss= 1 ml of water Coconut water, sugarcane juice, sports drink are also consumed.
  14. 14. VITAMINS  Play imp role in metabolic pathways- protein and bone synthesis, hemoglobin synthesis, and immune function. It has been assumed that if increased energy needs are met, vitamin and mineral requirement would also be met.  Poor nutritional status- Athletes report poor nutritional status due to training and poor work schedules, rely on snacking resulting in nutrient deficiencies.
  15. 15. IRON • Iron is required for red blood cell production. • Iron is required for a healthy immune system Inadequate iron in the body can impair aerobic metabolism by decreasing the delivery of oxygen to tissues and reducing the capacity of muscles to use oxygen for the oxidative production of energy.  Athletes have a high risk of iron depletion for several reasons: 1. High requirements • Increased red blood cell mass means athletes have higher iron needs.  Increased losses- Iron is lost in the sweat. Athletes with high sweat losses have higher iron losses. Iron concentration of sweat during exercise ranges from 0.13 to 0.42mg/l
  16. 16.  3. Dietary Issues- Iron intake is often sub-optimal in athletes with restricted food intakes: o Eating poorly balanced diets.  A high reliance on snack and convenience foods and failure to consume regular meals reduce the athlete’s intake of iron.  Hard exercise results in an increase in the volume of plasma in the blood. This can dilute haemoglobin levels and incorrectly suggest that there is a problem with iron status. This condition is known as ‘sports anaemia’. increase in plasma decrease in Heavy volume serum ferritin training leading to and Hb hemodilution
  17. 17. CALCIUM  Osteoporosis- major health concern  ACSM, 1997 identified Ca deficiency in female athletes- characterized by estrogen deficiency, disordered eating, athletic amenorrhea, loss of bone mass.  Athletic amenorrhea- female athletes who exercise strenuously stop menstruating (Warren and Stiehl, 1999).  Diet modification- more calcium, Vitamin D intake- i.e. calcium fortified fruit juices, soy milk and tofu, milk and products, sesame seeds etc. Excessive exercise osteop Athletic Energy amenorr orosis hea drain Female athletic triad Disorded Hypothalmic eating- Inhibit the dysfunction or anorexia amenor release of excess cortisol nervosa, rhea gonadotropins level bulimia
  18. 18. B VITAMIN  Increased energy metabolism creates a need for more B vitamin (serves as a part of coenzyme involved in energy cycles).  No evidence that supplementing the well nourished athlete with B vitamin will increase performance (Keith, 1994).  Deficiency of Vitamin B12 could develop in vegetarian athletes after several years of strict vegan intake. Supplements are required for these.  supplementation of diet with either single or multivitamin preparations containing B-complex vitamins, vitamin C or E does not improve physical performance in athletes with a normal biochemical vitamin balance resulting from a well-balanced diet.
  19. 19. Antioxidant nutrients Vitamin A, E and C, beta carotene- protects cell membrane from oxidative damage. increases Increased oxidative generation of Exercise processes in lipid peroxidases muscle and free radicals Endurance exercise increases oxygen utilization in muscles and heart . Most of it is utilized for oxidative phosphorylation and some of it results in generation of free radicals.  These vitamins neutralizes free radicals. These nutrients may have a role in enhancing recovery from exercise but there is no evidence that they improve performance.
  20. 20. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS  ALCOHOL-  Has a detrimental effect on athletic performance.  Many athletes incorrectly believe that alcohol contains carbohydrates, and will improve performance.  It is a poor source of carbohydrate, vitamins, electrolytes and minerals  It has no effect on physiological processes of exercise.  Light social drinking during the day does not influence athletic performance.
