Training Tips

How diet helps recovery after the race

Expert: Miss Sylvia Lam – Registered Dietitian and Chairlady of Hong Kong Dietitians Association

Key Points:

  • Research findings indicate that it is best to eat foods which contain protein and sugar within 30 minutes after the race for replenishment of sugar to refuel and help the healing of your muscles.
  • An egg sandwich, a glass of fruit smoothie, a rice ball, or noodles with some meat on top could be considered.
  • Don’t drink a huge amount of water immediately after the race. Drink 1 – 2 glasses of water per hour after the race as this will be enough.
