The Secrets of the Feed. SPORT Range
Whether you like to go for your morning jog 🏃♀️ at sunrise, lifting weights 🏋️♂️ during your lunch break, or letting loose at Zumba 💃 class in the evening, Feed. SPORT is always here to accompany you on your fitness journey.
Nutritionally, a complete meal from the SPORT range consists of:
Protein is a macronutrient that contributes to the renewal and construction of muscles, hair, skin, nails, and bones.
“Protein is the main component of muscles.”
To avoid drawing on muscle reserves (loss of muscle mass), it is important to regularly incorporate protein into our diets. Our muscles work tirelessly everyday and need to be “repaired” very regularly: a process that requires a lot of protein.
Depending on how physically active someone is, it takes between 1.2g and 2g of protein per kilogram of body weight per day to develop muscle mass.
Daily protein requirement in grams per kilogram of body weight per day according to type of physical activity.
Recommended protein intake per meal and the equivalent number of scoops of Feed. SPORT to consume according to weight and daily protein requirement.
In this table, we consider that someone consumes the same amount of protein at each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). However, in reality, nobody sees their protein intake evenly distributed in this way.
A Feed. SPORT meal provides you with an average 50g of protein (5 scoops). The size of our sachets (680g or 2.55kg) allows you to adapt your portions according to your needs.
Is it possible to gain muscle mass with Feed. SPORT?
All Feed. products are vegan, so we are careful to ensure that all essential amino acids are found in each of our meals. The combination of cereals (oats) and vegetables (pea protein) allows us to do so.
People often believe that the higher the protein intake, the greater the muscle mass gain, however, that is not always the case.
“Building muscle mass requires increasing protein requirements (through physical activity) and increasing protein intakes.”
Carbohydrates are essential in athletes’ diets because they provide the energy their bodies need for muscle contraction.
Carbohydrates with a high glycemic index should be used during or just before (30min) a workout to provide a quick burst of energy.
Carbohydrates with a low glycemic index are gradually assimilated by the body and should be consumed at least 90 minutes before physical activity and during recovery for the constitution of glycogen reserves (glucose reserves in the liver and muscles).
Fatty acids are used to provide energy and are used in the composition of nerve fibres.
Therefore, it is important to have a good lipid intake, especially for prolonged physical activity during which they will be used the most.
That’s why we have chosen high-quality lipids with ideal nutritional properties: yellow flaxseeds (omega-3 fatty acids) and sunflower oil (monounsaturated fatty acids).
Our sunflower oil, obtained from sunflower seeds, is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, and antioxidants. Yellow flaxseeds are rich in omega 3, particularly ⍺-linolenic acid. The latter is the only fatty acid that is essential in our diet as it cannot be synthesised by the body. It is the base for many other molecules that are beneficial to health: anti-inflammatory drugs, lipemia regulators, retinal protectors and essential components of cells, blood vessels and neurons.
Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamins and minerals are essential to the proper functioning of the body, especially when we exercise regularly. Each Feed. SPORT meal covers 33% of the daily requirements of vitamins and minerals.
The advantages of our SPORT range:
– Twice as much protein (50g/meal) than in our classic range (20g/meal)
– Six grams of naturally present sugar per meal (on average)
– Low-glycemic index
– Various high quality lipids
– A third of your daily vitamin and mineral intake to compensate and to maintain performance
Feed. SPORT is not a supplement. Instead, it is a balanced meal adapted to the needs of athletes. Each meal provides all the nutrients an active person requires in order to maintain a healthy diet.
With Feed. SPORT you have no excuse to give up on your fitness goals!
