Tip #1: Why wheat is the worst for runners
Wheat contains harmful substances that are bad for your performance. But there are many healthy and tasteful alternatives.
Tip #2: Spice up your post workout meal
It is not only their taste that makes spices interesting. Like many herbs, spices also have an effect in the body and can, e.g., reduce inflammation. In this video you will learn how to improve your regeneration with chili, ginger & co.
Tip #3: Stay injury-free until Berlin with silica
During the preparation for the competition, tendons and ligaments in particular are subjected to heavy strain. Foods containing natural silica strengthen your collagen fibres and make the connective tissue more resilient. Here you will learn how to supply yourself well with silicic acid.

Beetroot is seen as some miracle cure in competitive sports and is particularly recommended in phases of high stress. It supplies valuable vitamins, minerals and plant substances and improves the oxygen supply for heart and muscles. Get my tips on that.

Competition preparation includes next to training a strategy for your diet before and during the race. My tips will help you to be well prepared for the start.
Tip #6: Dark chocolate is good for you
