Without the right food, even physical conditioning and expert coaching are not adequate to attain the best results

Our country is making a mark in almost every field and sports are not an exception. Fitness is most important term when it comes to Sports!  While right exercise can give you desired results and make you reach to the ideal physique for the sport form you have chosen, right food supplement plays a vital role. Your entire performance is based on your fitness which depend upon the intake of right food.

'Physical fitness' is the very common terminology we get to hear or use so many times. Let us understand the scientific meaning of being physically fit and the components needed to be measured to state that a person is physically fit or unfit. 

If we talk about sports today, it is becoming increasingly competitive. More and more stress is being placed on how well the sportsperson performs and wins medals. The struggle for a strong portfolio is on every time. Along with the training and motivation, adequate diet is equally important component for an athlete. Without the right food, even physical conditioning and expert coaching are not enough to achieve the best results.

Athletes can perform well if they have the desired body fat percentage for their specific sport. In an attempt to attain body fat levels that are inappropriate, or have body fat percentages below the minimal levels, they may adopt dangerous dieting patterns. Thus, there are chances that they may be at risk for an eating disorder (anorexia or bulimia) or other health problems associated to poor energy and nutrient intakes.

Pre-exercise or pre event meals-

  • Consume high carbohydrate before sport event/ exercise/ match because blood glucose is replenished from liver glycogen..... during sleep breakdowns of this glycogen so in the morning glycogen level are low so include more carbohydrate in the night.
  • Food with higher sugar levels should be avoided
  • Meals should be taken 2 to 4 hours before exercise
  • Take frequent meals than onetime large meals.
  • Dont try new food, like new dishes/ recipes during the competition days

During Exercise -

  • To maintain water balance drink sufficient water
  • Maintain electrolyte Balance, so take any electrolyte powder or go for coconut water, which is the best electrolyte.
  • Maintain normal blood sugar level-so glucose water is a must.

After Exercise- Remember the three ''R''

  • Replace fluid that is lost during exercise so drink a lot of water in the form of kokum sharbat, Buttermilk (thin), Lemonade, coconut water, khus sharbat etc.
  • Refill carbohydrates level have some carbohydrates rich food like banana, or gluose water etc
  • Replace electrolyte (Sodium, Potassium and Chloride) for this one can have lemon sharbat, coconut water or electrolyte powder. Certain foods dietary regimens or supplements improve performance.

08 September 2017
MEGHM Our grandparents, have always insisted us about Shuddha  and Sampurn Ahaar. The cleaner, less processed and natural food you have in your diet, the chances of living a healthy life are even more.  There are seven centers in our body in which energy flows through. These are called the Chakras. The chakras are closely related to various systems in our body. Each Chakra has close resemblance with the science of colours. Rainbow has seven colour = Similarly = seven chakras has colours that are close to our nature. When we see the rainbow we feel happy and we get a positive energy. Science also says if we eat a seven different colour & taste of food we get all nutrients and antioxidants. So here let us try to understand that healthy connection of various colours food and the Chakra in our body All of us know that that we consume food which gives us energy & chakras also give us energy. If we are eating balanced diet, clean diet and more close to nature diet we will definitely get positive energy. If we are into the negative thought process then our chakras become weak emitting the more negative energy. So think positive for positivity and positive energy. Now this positivity along with good food and bring loads of happiness for healthy life. Negative Energy leads to so many diseases, including various disorders like acidity and even cancer. Positive Energy leads to give you healthy body(disease free life) So just look at the relationship between Chakras and Food. Muladhar Chakra: it is located at the base of sacrum or spinal cord. The colour for this Chakra is Red. It is related to reproductive system so if you have any reproductive system problem have beet root, red apple, pomegranate, tomatoes, strawberries. Janadhishtan Chakra: This chakra is located below the navel. These chakra help to strengthen your excretory system. Constipation, diarrhoea, kidney stone and kidney disease prevail if this chakra  is  weak. Jandhisthan chakra has a orange colour.

It helps to strengthen your digestive system and this chakra help to cure gases, acidity problem. This chakra colour is yellow. And the light yellow colour food are pineapple, daal, yellow mango that are really helpful. Anahata Chakra: These chakra located in the center of the chest. It helps to fortify the immune system. The colour of the chakra is green- so green leafy vegetables, green apple, green veggies like broccoli are the good options to be taken and stay fit. Visudha Chakra- this chakra is located near third gland. So it helps to strengthen and support your respiratory system. This chakras  colour is light blue, so water is the host example to help to strengthen this chakra, green tea, herbal tea. Lemon grass tea is the best example to take care of this chakras. Ajna chakra: This chakra is located in between our eyes. It helps to fortify  our nervous system as well as endocrine system. Dark blue colour or purple colour are indicated by this chakra. Brinjal, grapes, plump, black tea or good food to help to nourish this chakra. Grown chakra/Sahasrana chakra: last but not the least. Grown chakra it is located in the brain or you can say at the tip of our nervous system. It helps to boost our metabolism. So if you want a weight reduction or weight gain this chakra should be strong. It also strengthens our whole CNS( Central Nervous System). It is imp chakra & thats why it called as grown chakra.
