What to supplement with?
Alternating between solid and liquid foods is a good way to avoid fatigue. For example, you can opt for energy gels
or energy purees
. This type of sports nutrition has the advantage of being well assimilated. For those who find gels too sweet, they can be diluted with water.
Energy drinks should also not be overlooked. Rich in carbohydrates, they help avoid hypoglycaemia during long efforts.
Finally, electrolyte drinks
are ideal for replenishing the minerals lost through perspiration. Minerals are essential. Each of them (potassium, sodium, magnesium, etc.) plays an essential role.
