Top Fuel for Top Performance (TFTP)
Want Top Performance? Go for Top Fuel!
CAF members and athletes have a lot in common in their quest for top performance. Top Fuel for Top Performance (TFTP) teaches the proper steps in assuring your body performs at its absolute best. It is vital that you regularly supply your body with nutritious food.
Timing is everything...
A critical period occurs immediately AFTER activity, and recovery nutrition prepares you for your NEXT physical challenge. This promotes muscle repair, glycogen (energy) storage and mental alertness. Does your recovery plan replenish protein, carbohydrates, fluids and electrolytes?
Protein and Carbs...
After training your muscles are primed for growth and repair. So ideally within 15 - 30 minutes, fuel up with foods to give lots of carbs (50 - 100g) and adequate protein (10 - 20g). You need to eat a balanced meal within 2 hours (or snack every 2 hours until your next meal).
