Diet and Jumping

by Tony Smith on 01/06/2011

There is nothing new in what I am going to say about how and what to eat to improve your athletic abilities. You have heard it before, but I have evidence on what I say may be true. Read on…

To re-eiterate the facts: stay away from high fat, high sugar, processed foods. Keep your diet to about 35% Lean protein (chicken and fish primarily) and the rest vegetables. Yes, vegetables. I am not a Vegan, but research has shown that the key to longevity is a high vegetable, low meat diet. Now, I crave a cheeseburger from time to time, and there is nothing wrong with cheating once a week. In fact, I encourage it, to give yourself a pat for your accomplishments. But I cannot stress enough that a high vegetable/fruit diet is most important (again, meat is ok in moderation).

Most Important! Stay away from cigarettes, heavy alcohol, and drugs! Supplementation should not be a science. A good whey protein powder is a good source of protein especially when holding back on meat consumption.. A multi vitamin formula will help. Creatine is up to the individual, but personally, not necessary.
