An athlete and bodybuilder’s foods are the building blocks to their muscles, connective tissue, and bones. The foods also provide nutrients that help an athlete/bodybuilder recover from training, repair and build strength and fill exhausted glycogen stores.
Athletes and Diet
Plant-based diets give athletes all of the nutrients that their bodies need for training and competition. Because plant-based diets are high in carbohydrates, low in fat, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, they work to support and improve an athlete’s performance.
