Dr Andrea Del Seppia from Cesena confirms himself as the official nutritionist of Perugia Calcio, coached by world champion Alessandro Nesta, for the B Series, season 2018 – 2019.
The Doctor was entrusted with all the nutritional management relating to the elaboration of diets, sports integration, the study of body composition and planning of all meals.
In fact, many professional football teams have understood that, in order to face a very long and difficult football championship, in addition to training, it is essential to take care of nutrition, diet and sports supplements in detail.
The importance of pre and post-workout nutrition
The planning of sports performance, from training to competition, begins with the study of the diet.
In order to maximize performance, the times of digestion, assimilation and permanence of the various nutrients must be known in the diet.
It is often underestimated how the lack of nutrients related to nutrition is one of the major causes of injuries in athletes and, at the same time, it is essential to reduce recovery times from injuries themselves.
It has been seen and scientifically validated how the correct nutritional management prevents injuries to the player.
An article that appeared in the online newspaper Umbria Journal explains what the Perugia Calcio players ate under the direction of Dr Del Seppia, during a period of preparation.
