The principle remains relatively basic: after a session of more or less intense physical activity, the body is tired and micro cracks may appear in the muscle fibers. They must be repaired by optimizing the intake of nutrients. More precisely, it is necessary to find the right dosage of micronutrients in one’s diet. Protein, lipid or carbohydrate intakes must therefore be controlled and adapted according to the situation.
