Daily Diet
15 Jul 2006

In our premier issue of Natural Champion we presented some Basic Nutrition Guidelines as a sort of Nutrition 101 primer to give our readers an insight into the relationship of food to the body, and the mind, in promoting overall good health and maximum physical performance. Subsequently, some readers have requested more in-depth information, sort of a ‘sets and reps’ nutrition article. So in this month’s column we’re going to be present a template, or blueprint, for a sample daily diet for a male athlete. Here ‘tis:
