Follow our top nutritional tips to put yourself ahead of the competition:

How to increase your Creatine levels:

  1. Good sources of natural creatine are rare steak, smoked kippers, salmon, and sushi.
  2. Method of food preparation is important- Cooking reduces the amount available in food so keep cooking time short.
  3. Making casseroles and eating the gravy, or using meat juices to make gravy would help to minimise creatine losses.

If you want to increase your Omega 3 levels:

  1. Eat oily fish, lamb, venison or omega 3 enriched foods.
  2. For a vegetarian equivalent try rapeseed, Soya, flaxseed and walnut oils.

To keep you energised for longer try eating smaller meals more often.
