“DUR­ING THE WIN­TER MONTHS, I REC­OM­MEND A VI TAMMIN D SUP­PLE­MENT FOR ALL M Y ATHLE TES”

While it’s a myth that you need more carbs in win­ter, it is true that changes of sea­son can af­fect your nutri­tional needs, and for a year-long pro­gramme to work, you need to keep up with those changes. “Dur­ing the win­ter months, I rec­om­mend a vi­ta­min D sup­ple­ment for all of my ath­letes, says Dana­her. “Stud­ies in­di­cate that vi­ta­min D de­fi­ciency is com­mon among ath­letes. When re­searchers cor­re­lated vi­ta­min D sta­tus with per­for­mance mea­sures, they found that there was an as­so­ci­a­tion be­tween blood lev­els of vi­ta­min D and en­durance per­for­mance.”
