Nutritional advice by ergysport for La Transju cross-country ski race in France in the Jura

Nutrition Tips by Ergysport

Nordic skiing subjects the body to a very important physiological stress because of the cumulative effects of the effort, the cold and the hypoxia (less diffusion of oxygen in the tissues at altitude).
A good physical/mental preparation and an adapted diet are necessary to participate and perform in such a discipline.

Dietician's advice:

  • Insist on hydration, increase water intake during training in the mountains: water loss is increased by hyperventilation and humidification of the drier air inspired.
  • Increase the intake of food sources of carbohydrates: rice, pasta, quinoa, potatoes... Greater and earlier demand on the anaerobic energy chain at altitude, increased use of carbohydrates and glycogen during exercise. Recommended carbohydrate intake: 6.5 to 7.5 g/kg/day.
  • Adjust and vary protein intake: 1 .5 to 1.8 g/kg/day
  • Introduce color into your plate by eating colorful foods rich in antioxidants: colored fruits and vegetables, spices... because the production of free radicals is increased at altitude.
  • Eat alkalizing foods regularly: fruits, vegetables, potatoes, sweet potatoes, avocado, dried fruits... Decrease in the buffering capacity of the body in hypoxia.
  • Eat good quality oils every day: olive, colza, walnut...: 3 to 4 tablespoons/day, oilseeds, fatty fish: sardines, mackerel... - 300 to 400 g/week. Recommended fat intake: 1 to 1.5 g/kg/day.
  • Have your iron stores checked
