CF - SPECIAL++

 

SUPPLEMENTS & TIPS - highly recommended:

 

NUTRITION & TIPS

TIP: Go light on the fruit and go hard on the veggies for medical reasons!!!

TIP: If you are used to drinking soda, try to switch as much as possible to things like coconut water, water, juice.

TIP: Fruit is amazing, but if you are borderline diabetic or full blown CFRD, fruit will cause high blood sugar problems when you have chest infections (bad bugs love sweet blood).

CF-DIET TIPS AND BREAKDOWN

HEALTHY MEAL CHOICE EXAMPLES for ATHLETS

by JAMES CAMERON and TRAiNLiKEME

 

CF - SPECIAL++

 

SUPPLEMENTS & TIPS - highly recommended:

  • Progressive greens– available at any supplement store, like ‘Webber’s All Greens’ and many more.
  • Pro-biotics are a must for CF’ers. I recommend a couple brands on my CF FILES page and also any brand sold at Costco.
  • Calcium (500mg x 2 per day, AM/PM). I use a calcium, magnesium, vitamin D combo twice daily.
  • Fish Oil x 2 per day (AM/PM)
  • CF Multivitamin (I use Aquadek or Usana) x 2 per day
  • Vitamin E (400ui x 2 per day, AM/PM)
  • Vitamin D (1000ui x 2 per day normally, and 4-5 per day on hardcore training days)
  • Vitamin B12 is great for athletes and CF’ers. It comes in an injectable form and pill form. Injectable: 1cc per week. Oral: 2 tablets per day.
  • CoQ10 is a great supplement to boost recovery during chest infections. Speeds up the healing process (inflamed lungs, stressed heart). Check to see if your CF multivitamin already contains CoQ10. Aquadek does contain it.

 

NUTRITION & TIPS

  • Golden rule of food: Make two fists with your hands. A proper balanced meal for YOU should go like this – One fist worth of protein (meat), one fist worth of carbs (pasta/potatoes/rice), two fists worth of veggies (salad, steamed veggies, spinach, etc)

TIP: Go light on the fruit and go hard on the veggies for medical reasons!!!

TIP: If you are used to drinking soda, try to switch as much as possible to things like coconut water, water, juice.

TIP: Fruit is amazing, but if you are borderline diabetic or full blown CFRD, fruit will cause high blood sugar problems when you have chest infections (bad bugs love sweet blood).
