Richard Evans, sport journalist and tennis fan rang me up for some expert advice on sport nutrition for the club tennis player in particular.
He must have remembered that I used to play a fairly good game of tennis in my younger days.
So, we had a chat about the importance of hydration, pre-play, during play and after the game as well.
I mentioned coconut water for replacing lost electrolytes instead of the regular sports drinks (as an alternative option) and also to refrain from caffeine and alcohol due to their diuretic effects.
We also talked about the importance of replacing lost carbs as well as protein for repair.
