Notes A - Z of nutritional supplements.
Summary Part 14 covers issues related to fats. General health messages tell us that we consume too much fat; thus it might seem strange to include it as a potential supplement for sports performance. But fat, in the form of our body stores, provides a relatively unlimited pool of energy: a critical adaptation to training is to enhance our ability to transport it, take it up into the muscle and oxidise it during exercise. However, even the most highly trained athletes have not reached maximal capacity for fat oxidation during exercise, since it can be increased even further by consumption of a high fat diet prior to the exercise.
