Nutrition: Best to eat before and after exercise

Nutrition experts warn against unprofessional diet regimes

My snacks can be anything from a yogurt to a protein bar but I dont really like those if I am running short on time between clients, he says. But I always try to get something with protein, especially after the workout. Post-workout After a workout, the muscles are repairing, and its important to help that process along by supplying the body not only with carbohydrates, but also with protein, Girard Eberle says. If you can time it so you are eating a well-balanced meal within 30 to 60 minutes after working out, that would be best, she says. If not, go for a snack that has some carbs and some protein. And rehydrate, particularly in the heat. For workouts lasting longer than 90 minutes, she recommends using sports drinks or GU, a sports nutrition gel high in carbohydrates that endurance athletes often use during long-distances rides and runs.

Dr Kaganda said that anyone who is approached by someone selling a regime that doesnt go hand in hand with exercise should have doubts. I was recently approached by a colleague with diet regime but was forced to refuse it because it appeared more like a mechanism to starve myself than one to lose weight, she explained. She said that she saw every possibility of getting other health complications if she had accepted the regime, urging the public to use hospitals and nutrition experts and explain their case. The doctor said that for the moment TFNC has no mandate to stop business minded people from selling the diet regimes without professional ethics and that the Tanzania Food and Drug Authority (TFDA) had the mandate. The centre is currently working on reviewing the law that we had since the early 70s. When the law was passed, we didnt have civil society organisations and non- governmental organisations (NGOs) dealing with nutrition and so coordinating them is very difficult without new legislation, she explained. Until the Sunday News went to press, the TFDA Public Relations Officer, Ms Gaudensia Simwanza who was contacted for comment had not responded to the questions that had been forwarded to her.
