Wer so durch das Internet surft und sich Rezepte ansieht, die auf Blogs oder Foren zu finden sind, der liest häufig durch Dinge, die alle gespickt sind mit den aktuellsten Superfoods: Kokosfett, Chia-Samen, Kokosmilch, Mandeldrink, Reisdrink, Goji-Beeren. Und obendrein muss es vegan oder zumindest vegetarisch oder glutunfrei sein. Da würde man fast meinen, wir haben hierzulande keine Superfoods und unsere Lebensmittel aus dem Umkreis können mit der internationalen Power nicht mithalten. Doch weit gefehlt! Auch vorm Haus, beim Bauern ums Eck, gibt es Dinge ab Hof zu kaufen, die auf jeden Fall mit den internationalen Superfoods mithalten können. Read more »

If there’s one thing I am certain of, it’s that in Austria we’ve the best desserts and Mehlspeisen. No other country can beat us in that. Some of them are really heavy but others are great recipes and can serve as a way to refuel or prepare for a race. Like with everything else, it depends on the recipe! Some original recipes need modification to be appropriate for an athlete’s close to competition. Of course, there’s also time (there must be!) for the original version. Eating those treats is part of our culture, it’s part of us – but it should be at the right time when you’re an elite athlete. Read more »

A smoothie is a good way to put many nutrients in just one glass/cup. Although this can also be risky for people who need to pay attention to their calorie intake, it is always good to have one on the daily plan. Depending on the calorie needs, the recipe can be adjusted. Little carbohydrates, less fibre or ore protein – there are many ways to prepare a smoothie and to modify a recipe. In the end one part of my job is to modify recipes if they do’t fit and when I look at an athlete’s train plan, one smoothie doesn’t fit into every day. my recipes need some adjustment. Read more »

Most of us remember semolina when they think back to what our mother or grandma prepared when we were little. A bowl of semolina with chocolate, honey or some jam on top; sometimes cooked with milk, sometimes with water. At least where I grew up that’s what people are familiar with.

We all know how difficult it is to resist all the good [food] temptations on the buffet when our eyes see too many good things prepared for us. Often, we take a plate because we’re hungry and run from one station to the next. Read more »

In sport science and sport nutrition we work a lot with and talk a lot about numbers. Already the assessment is usually full of numbers. Height, weight, age, body fat, watts, maximal heart rate, morning heart rate, maximal power output. And we continue with the numbers when we talk about blood values, power-to-weight ratio, calorie needs and many more.

Oft wundern sich Sportler, wie sie sich am besten versorgen, wenn sie hart trainieren. Dabei suchen sie nach den eigenartigsten Riegeln, Shakes und Superfoods. Dabei geht es so einfach, sich selber einen Vorrat an Snacks zuzubereiten. Der Vorteil davon ist schnell erklärt: keine Zusatzstoffe, frisch und fettarm, nach Belieben erweiterbare Rezeptur und sehr häufig auch preisgünstiger als Riegel und andere Produkte. Read more »

Reading through health and sport magazines, I usually find a lot of articles featuring new products on the market. Vitamins, minerals, superfoods, proteins and many other supplements which will help us perform better – according to the companies’ claims. Most of the time the claims are wrong, the evidence is missing and for me, who works in the sport nutrition field and promotes healthy eating, the question remains always: what about an athlete’s every day nutrition? Shouldn’t we first be looking at what athletes eat at home, how they shop, what they put into their shopping basket, if they have basic cooking skills before we talk about supplements?

Many people go to the supermarket, look at a label on the package but don’t really know how to read a nutrition facts label. Others are advised to use the food label because they are intolerant or allergic to some nutrients and need to identify the foods they can eat. And then there’s another group – athletes often included – who want to cut back on hidden calories and fats and want to make sure what they buy is healthy and without additives.
