This is "my" mashed&smashed up personal blog where I try to post useful stuff for people that are into sports, people that want technology to for for them and not vice versa, people looking for solutions to mobile phone problems especially Nokia and Android related, people that are interested in SEO in making money online and more...

Sports Cookbook

The title of this blog goes food, recipes, sports and so on but these first three are enough to make this post. I like cooking... well actually I don't like cooking that much, I like cooking simple things that still taste great. I don't like complicated meals that leave you with piles of dirty dishes. And I like sports. Food in sports is very... VERY important. You are what you eat and if you want to take your favorite sport a bit more seriously you need a sports cookbook.

I you talk to a bodybuilder he will tell you that hm... (insert a really big % here) of the bodybuilding is food. Another big % is rest and the rest is training. If you are not after your muscles this changes a bit, but still you get the idea.

Professional athletes even bring their own cooks to contest since what they eat is crucial to their success. As a recreational surfer, snowboarder, mountain climber... you wouldn't go that far but it's funny how you can notice a difference in your abilities if you start using a sports cookbook to balance your diet.

Sports cookbook is full of recipes and advice on hoe to use them to peak your nutritional status and performance. How to plan your menus, how to load on the carbohydrates before the contests (or of course before your next trip to the mountains, before your next 5 hour session..whatever you do, this works!), what to eat when training and what to eat when you want to recover after your exercise.

A good sports cookbook will also tell you the dangers that can be results of poor food intake and extreme stress, how can you replace calcium, get rid of tiredness and dehydration and even thing we talk at the beginning - how to bulk up (and lose weight if you want to).

Eating healthy sports food is cool. But being on a diet, any sort of diet is only "fun" if the food you eat is good and there are a variety of meals available. Nobody wants to eat the same stuff every day. Yuck, you get tired of anything, even the best food in town. And no matter what some people think and say, I don't thin eating the same food every day can be healthy. Your body needs variety. So this is where a good sports cookbook comes in - it gives you lots of ideas for meals that you know have been thoughtfully put together to boost your sport abilities.

Next time I'll try to list a few sports cookbooks that you can use.
