If you’re planning on skiing this winter, whether it’s for a week-long trip or a more intensive season, in addition to preparing your body with workouts, you might want to think about adapting your diet. Winter sports require a particular diet, because of the altitude, cold and physical activity involved.
Make sure you eat a big breakfast every day, which will provide all the energy you need for hours on the snow.
We recommend eating a variety of foodstuffs and taking in plenty of calories.
At lunchtime, recharge your batteries with slow-burning carbohydrates such as pasta and rice. Avoid eating and drinking too much!
In the afternoon, snack on a cereal bar or some dried fruit if you feel peckish.
Don't forget to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day, as dehydration can be caused by physical effort and cold.
