5. Balance Mindful Meals for Agility and Balance
For the Athlete: Adam Korzun, MS, RD, CSSD, a sport dietitian for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Teams, says he tries to focus each athlete on consistency in timing, composition, and quality of each meal. Any athletic meal can be good for a non-athlete; the only thing to keep in mind is reducing the portion size.
For You: “You don't want to begin your workday on an empty stomach just as an athlete does not want to begin a training session on an empty stomach. And the composition of your meal is that balance between carbs and protein that is so often overlooked when we eat in a hurry or snack. Focus on giving yourself the best type of fuel,” Korzun explains.
