General Nutrition Advice

Swim training requires a diet that is high in carbohydrates to fuel sessions in the pool and on land to maximise performance, prevent early fatigue and aid recovery between sessions.

Eating regular meals and snacks based on carbohydrate foods and drinking regularly throughout the day, particularly at key times before, during and after your training session is important to help you get the most out of your training, for optimal performance and health.

Try to drink lots of water before and during your training session - 1 litre of water for each hour of training is a good guide. Remember to take your water bottle to each session filled with water or weak juice. Try to eat a light snack 40 mins before training. A snack should be eaten immediately after training with a more substantial meal eaten within 1-2 hours of finishing training.

The main source of energy for exercise comes from carbohydrates. Most top swimmers eat meals that are high in carbohydrates and low in fat - rice or pasta with low fat sauce; noodles- chow mein; jacket potatoes; beans on toast; cereal and toast.
