GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDERS : POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS


GI(gastrointestinal) such as constipation or diarrhea are common among people. If you have ever been prolonged by one or the other during training, you know how worrisome this is and how much it can interfere with performance.

If you experience intestinal problems during exercise, try experimenting with what you eat before you workout. Here are some possible solution :

  • Consume liquids such as sports drink instead of solid food.
  • Decrease the amount of fiber in your daily diet (e.g. limit bran cereals and whole grains)
  • Reduce or eliminate suspect food such as coffee and milk.
  • Exercise in the morning, before you eat meals, as opposed to in the afternoon.
  • Fuel yourself during morning exercise (with a sports drink) instead of having as energy bar or other breakfast food before you exercise.
  • Eat your breakfast between the night before so that you wake up adequately fueled and able to exercise well for a short while without eating or drinking. For longer bouts, consume carbohydrates and water during exercise.
  • Eliminate Aspirin, Advil, Motrin and similar NSAIDs.
  • Experiment with anti-diarrheal medication such as Imodium.
