FI­BRE

Triathlon Plus - - Nutrition Feature -

● Found in foods that come from plants. There are two dif­fer­ent types of fi­bre: sol­u­ble and in­sol­u­ble. Sol­u­ble fi­bre can be di­gested by your body and is found in oats, rye, ba­nanas, ap­ples, car­rots and pota­toes. ● In­sol­u­ble fi­bre can't be di­gested. It passes through your gut with­out be­ing bro­ken down and helps other foods move through your di­ges­tive sys­tem more eas­ily. In­sol­u­ble fi­bre can be found in whole­meal bread, un­pro­cessed ce­re­als, corn, nuts and seeds. ● It is im­por­tant to in­clude fi­bre in your gen­eral diet, although it does not pro­vide any mean­ing­ful en­ergy dur­ing a triathlon. In fact, eat­ing too much fi­bre prior to a race might con­trib­ute to an up­set stom­ach, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the run sec­tion. ● Swim 750m. Cy­cle 20km.
