Having understood what a diet is and why it is necessary, it will be easier to adhere to your own daily routine, which is a good incentive. After all, regularity has a lot of advantages. Since compliance with the diet is an important component of a healthy lifestyle, like regular sleep. It is enough to draw up a daily routine and clearly follow the food intake schedule for a week, so that the body is rebuilt to a new rhythm.

Eating food every day at the same time, the body develops a conditioned reflex, due to which appetite is excited in a timely manner, which is not unimportant with 4-6 meals a day.

Rational nutrition can significantly improve the athlete’s body condition, optimizing the processes occurring in him, and vice versa, up to diseases and injuries. The optimal satisfaction of the body's nutritional needs under heavy loads is an important prerequisite for solving the problems of physical fitness.

A huge amount of training in sports makes it very difficult to organize a balanced diet for highly qualified athletes. Nevertheless, observing the diet, eating food from 4-6 times a day, you can ensure a uniform supply of nutrients.

The authors of this article tried to review and analyze the available scientific literature to propose their concept of the distribution of daily caloric needs, taking into account the daily routine, in the training process of highly qualified athletes.
