In the competitive world of professional sports, good nutrition can be a key advantage. Global sports icon and international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo believes that it is essential. That’s why the Portuguese winger/forward is joining forces with Herbalife to promote great nutrition and regular exercise for people of all activity levels.

“I strongly believe in the importance of the right nutrition for me as an individual, both on and off the field,” says Ronaldo. “I am looking forward to working with Herbalife, as a company that shares my passion and brings such expertise and knowledge in the area of sports nutrition.”

Herbalife Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Johnson says that teaming up with Ronaldo is a natural. Ronaldo is a leader on his team and Herbalife is a leader in global nutrition. “One of the most exciting elements of our new relationship is that we will be working with Ronaldo to develop cutting edge sports nutrition products together, which will be cobranded,” said Johnson.

Ronaldo is already working with Herbalife Senior Director of Sports Nutrition Dr. John Heiss on a comprehensive product line. As his official nutrition sponsor, Herbalife will also work with Ronaldo to optimize his own nutrition program and provide him with a range of products to support his demanding training regimen. Finally, he will team up with the Herbalife Family Foundation to develop programs that assist nutritional health and education initiatives.

Johnson says Herbalife gets positive exposure from more than 100 sponsorships of athletes, teams and sports events. “The world is wearing the Herbalife brand and it is a testament to our products that Herbalife is attracting interest from renowned athletes in Europe and around the world.”

Proper nutrition during the training process increases efficiency, reduces recovery time and helps athletes to achieve their goals.

Our recommendation regarding the training day:

Eating before exercise. Energy supply for muscles.

Purpose: to replenish glycogen stores in the muscles before training

Recommendations: eating before exercise should be divided into two stages:


        A. For 3-4 hours before exercise should eat a relatively large amount of complex carbohydrates with a medium or low          glycemic index. Also recommended protein products with low fat content. For example, this meal you can choose the pasta / brown rice / whole wheat bread, and as a source of protein - chicken or turkey / ham / tuna / yogurt / cheese / soy milk / beans (no fat).

If you exercise in the morning, dinner the day before should include carbohydrates.


        B. For 15-30 minutes before training needed carbohydrate foods with a high glycemic index.

Objective: To obtain a small portion of carbohydrates relatively quickly to increase the level of glucose in the blood and give energy to the start of exercise. Examples of products: Herbalife H3O beverage, dried fruits, fruit, cereal with milk / yogurt or without a piece of bread with cheese, jam or honey.

NRG dietary supplement should be consumed right before the exercise/competition.

Benefits of caffeine: it stimulates the central nervous system, increases the release of adrenaline, increases heart rate, lowers peripheral sensitivity to pain and fatigue. Caffeine increases stamina, improves muscle and aerobic capacity of the organism. A side effect of caffeine while consuming in a large doses: long-term use is developing addictive. Discontinuation causes withdrawal symptoms of headache, fatigue, and mood swings.  Not recommended for people with high blood pressure.

Nutrition during training.

Objective: to compensate for the loss of fluids through sweat, prevent dehydration, provide the body with carbohydrates and minerals during exercise lasting more than 90 minutes.

Recommendations: Drinking regime - 400-800 ml of water every hour of workout. If the training takes place in a hot and humid climate the amount of water should be increased. At the same time do not exceed the advised norms - excessive drinking water and "blood-thinning" (hyponatremia) might threaten health. The addition of carbohydrates and minerals during exercise lasting more than one and a half hours -  every 45 minutes should be consumed quickly digestible carbohydrate foods with a high glycemic index - for example: N3O drinks, dried fruit, pretzels, sports gels, etc.

The end of the workout.

"The window of opportunity" Purpose: To ensure effective recovery of muscles after training; compensate spent nutrient stores and rebuild the immune system.


Recommendation: Power supply in two stages


        A. Immediately after training body needs fast carbohydrates to reverse the destruction of muscle tissue (due to the workout) in to the process of its construction. Objective: To stimulate the production of insulin, a hormone that is building (anabolic) and helps speed up the recovery and growth of muscles. Also need to drink water to restore stocks of fluid consumed during exercise.

        B. Within 30-60 minutes after training it is necessary to have a meal, it's calls  "window of opportunity". Food should combine carbohydrates and proteins. Recommended cocktail Herbalife based on milk with added fruit, most athletes will need to add protein powder. Cocktail supplies the body rapidly absorbed protein and carbohydrates to speed up the processes of recovery and muscle growth.

On the evening of April 8, 1999, a long line of Town Cars and taxis pulled up to the Minneapolis headquarters of Pillsbury and discharged 11 men who controlled America’s largest food companies. Nestlé was in attendance, as were Kraft and Nabisco, General Mills and Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola and Mars. Rivals any other day, the C.E.O.’s and company presidents had come together for a rare, private meeting. On the agenda was one item: the emerging obesity epidemic and how to deal with it. While the atmosphere was cordial, the men assembled were hardly friends. Their stature was defined by their skill in fighting one another for what they called “stomach share” — the amount of digestive space that any one company’s brand can grab from the competition.

James Behnke, a 55-year-old executive at Pillsbury, greeted the men as they arrived. He was anxious but also hopeful about the plan that he and a few other food-company executives had devised to engage the C.E.O.’s on America’s growing weight problem. “We were very concerned, and rightfully so, that obesity was becoming a major issue,” Behnke recalled. “People were starting to talk about sugar taxes, and there was a lot of pressure on food companies.” Getting the company chiefs in the same room to talk about anything, much less a sensitive issue like this, was a tricky business, so Behnke and his fellow organizers had scripted the meeting carefully, honing the message to its barest essentials. “C.E.O.’s in the food industry are typically not technical guys, and they’re uncomfortable going to meetings where technical people talk in technical terms about technical things,” Behnke said. “They don’t want to be embarrassed. They don’t want to make commitments. They want to maintain their aloofness and autonomy.”     .....read more
