Va­lerie on hy­dra­tion:

“Keep sip­ping away and don’t let your­self get thirsty. That’s the first sign that you’re al­ready de­hy­drated.”

Fiona on calo­ries:

“Make sure you’re get­ting ad­e­quate calo­ries to fuel your body.”

Sinead on eat­ing for re­cov­ery:

“Im­me­di­ately af­ter train­ing, eat a meal that gives you the nu­tri­ents you need to re­plen­ish.”

Orla on mix­ing it up:

“Don’t just eat the same things day in, day out. A var­ied diet en­sures va­ri­ety in your gut bac­te­ria.”

Op­tional ex­tras:

Eat the rain­bow and make your meals as colour­ful as pos­si­ble.

Start as you mean to go on and eat a good meal in the morn­ing. Make sure to eat protein with ev­ery meal. Tai­lor your diet to the type of train­ing you’re do­ing.
