Question: I practice sports six days a week, four of them do cardiovascular exercise (running and spinning) and the other two, bodybuilding and bossu. What should I have for dinner to perform in my classes and provide my body with the nutrients and energy it needs? I worry for example being having boiled rice for spinning the next day and causing me to gain weight. Felipe (Philadelphia).
Answer: We recommend a balanced and complete diet, including carbohydrates, proteins and, to a lesser extent, good quality fats. In this way you will provide your body with the necessary calories, minerals and vitamins that you need and you can make the effort that physical activity requires. And with regard to your doubts about boiled rice before aerobic exercise, you can eat it without problem because it will not cause you to gain weight.
