What is a good gymnast diet?

I want my daughter the gymnast to eat healthy and smart.

Carbohydrates are very important but proteins and some fats are even more important for gym sports. The best are eggs, all sorts of meat and cheese, lots of vegetables and some peanuts.

A vegetarian or pescatarian diet would be healthy, the important thing to keep in mind is that red meats and food s rich in trans and saturated fats stay with you for a long time. Don't get hung up on calories because it depends on how well you can digest anyway.

The proper diet needed would be high in carbohydrates (more than 50%), protein (at less 12%) and low in fat (less than 25%). A good diet is essential to performance, fatigue or injury. The best advice would be to contact a nutritionist for an individual evaluation.
