Diet

#1
Basically I've started training, and I am starting my application process very soon. However, I'd like to know what types of food I should be getting , and what types should be avoided at all costs! Also, any other things to keep in mind whilst training would really help. cheers!

I'm not going to tell you what you SHOULD eat, because everyone has different needs and requirements, but usually you should try and get a high protein, high carb diet, as your be running alot and performing strength exercises your going to need the fuel.

Plenty of Fruits
PLENTY of Veg
Chicken breast (skinless)
Sirloin steak
Tuna
Salmon
Mackerel
plenty of water! about 2.5 litres a day
Wholewheat Pastas
Brown Rice
Quinoa rice (keen-wah) - lots of protein

(get a healthy eating book lol)

you need fat in your diet just not saturated fats!

stay off the cakes etc... NO fizzy, NO BOOZE!!!!!!

Good advice that UberSoldat.

Plenty of veg but try and steam it instead of boiling it, a good veg is broccoli. Loadsa oily fish for Omega 3s. One of my favourite snacks was tuna on brown toast (no butter). I used to eat 12 eggs a day, just the white's though, no yokes. Lots of salad stuff too but stay off the salad cream.

Weighing scales into the bin- don't look at them don't bother with them.
Exercise sensibly learn about healthy energy giving foods-pasta-rice-potatoes-all foods that are low in fat and full of carbohydrates. Read up on low fat meats like chicken. Eggs are good. learn about warming up and cooling down. Learn relaxation exercises. Bananas are good for instant long term energy. All the foods you like are also good for you in moderation. Get a good book on healthy food and remember your cooks at camp will be giving you the foods that you need. Crack on.
