Welcome to Sportnutrix,

Sportnutrix Nutrition Site
Rest day nutrition

Speaking to athletes you often get to hear that they are afraid to eat too much on easy training or rest days. Sometimes that’s true, especially in those who underfuelled on hard training days and then are hungry and eat by far more than needed because the body tries to recovery from the days in deficit. However, under “normal” conditions, i.e. in athletes who eat well and enough on hard training days, a rest day is a day where quality is the main focus and overeating shouldn’t be a problem.

On the menu are the following ingredients: high nutrient density, more fibre, healthy fats, more salads or veggies and less snacks and energy dense foods that unnecessarily boost your calorie intake.
