What do you recommend to improve performance at sport ?

Apart from lots of practise, the two key requirements in sport are energy and focus. Both of these are affected by how well your blood sugar is balanced. Poor blood sugar balance is very common and causes fatigues, as well as poor concentration, memory and mood, and craving for carbohydrates. The condition results from nutrient deficiencies, a diet high in refined carbohydrates and low in wholefoods, and excessive use of stimulants such as colas, coffee and tea.

To keep energy and focus high, concentrate on fruits, vegetables, wholegrains and high-quality proteins such as lean free-range chicken and tofu. Always have a good breakfast, lunch and dinner plus two snacks a day (say, a handful of seeds or nuts and a piece of fruit, or a rice cake with hummus), balance carbohydrates and proteins 2:1, avoid sugar and drink plenty of water. On the day, have a good breakfast, eat a fruit/nut/seed snack before and during the event, and drink plenty of water instead of sugary drinks.
