Dietary Guidlines

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Assignment 4: Dietary Guidelines In this assignment I am going to make two tables presenting dietary guidelines for two selected athletes. I am going to do a table for a Footballer and a Long Distance Runner. I will include events such as a training day, an off day and a match day. Both of these athletes need a balanced diet of carbohydrates to provide energy quickly E.G. sugar, sweets, jam etc. Protein to provide energy and to help the body grow and repair its self E.G. meat, egg, milk, fish etc. Fats to also provide energy E.G. Butter, cheese, fried food, crisps etc. Vitamins to help bones, teeth and skin grow. Water needed in body's chemical reactions, it is lost in breath, sweat, urine and faeces. Fibre - Aid in digestion process E.G. fruit, vegetable, cereals. Footballer Meal Time Training Day Explanation Off Day Explanation Match Day Explanation 9.00 am Breakfast Cereal - Bran Flakes.

Drinks Orange Juice at breakfast, Lucozade during training, Water at night. The energy within Lucozade drinks comes in the form of glucose. Drinking this during training will help your muscles work for longer and drinking it afterwards will help speed up the recovery process of your muscles. Water at dinner to maintain fluid level. Glass of Red Wine. A glass of red wine increases good cholesterol and lowers levels of a blood-clotting chemical. Red Wine has grapes in it. The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrients. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol or caffeine of any kind on match day. Drink a lot of water This is to keep you self refreshed and hydrated.

Conclusion

Water is a common chemical substance that is essential for the survival of all known forms of life. Drinking water is to keep you self refreshed and hydrated. In this assignment I have identified the two different athletes and what there Dietary Guidelines should be. I have done events including training day, off day and match day which were all followed by explanations. The link between football players and long-distance endurance athletes seems strange at first glance, since football is a game involving sudden sprints and bursts of energy rather than continuous moderate-intensity running, but the connection doesn't seem so extraordinary when one considers what happens during an actual football match. In a typical contest, football players run for a total of 10-11 kilometres at fairly modest speed, sprint for about 800-1200 metres, accelerate 40-60 different times, and change direction every five seconds or so. So in my opinion I feel that Footballers and Long Distance Runners share the same sort of lifestyle for there diets, runners have more carbohydrates as they are constantly keeping fit and keeping tabs on there consumption of fluids. As where footballers who are also keeping fit a lot can go a bit wilder with the diet like having a glass of wine on an off day. ?? ?? ?? ?? Tom Camp ...read more.
