If you are heavily involved in sports and you are a lacto-vegetarian, we recommend that you get a large amount of nuts and grains which are filled with carbohydrates as well as a lot of fruits that can give your body some highly needed water that will eventually be sweated out during your sports workout. Athletes who are vegetarians often worry about their nutrition since participating in sports is so important to keeping them fit. All they really need to remember is that the body needs certain vitamins and minerals to function correctly. That’s where research comes into play.
Ask some of your Paleo vegetarian friends what they do before they play sports so that their nutrition doesn’t suffer. Look online for suggestions about what you can do to get the most nutrition from your vegetarian diet before playing sports. Read books and ask your doctor along the way if you are worried about nutrition as a vegetarian who participates heavily in sports. The old saying is that you can never have too much information, so seek out what is there for you and then take heed. It will all be worth it in the end!
