Optimal nutrition is an important aspect of any athlete’s preparation to achieve optimal health and performance. Published literature often focuses on male athletes, leaving out specific advice for females. Women differ from men not only in size, but in body composition and hormonal balance. They also differ from one another – highlighting the individuality of any nutritional approaches.
Taking on the right nutrition can have a big impact on your performance. Some athletes will add (or reduce) certain macronutrients in their weekly training programme to match the effort they put in.
