#BEACTIVE with SNE! All you need to know about nutrition and sport

Make sure you check regularly the SNE website to get the best tips in terms of nutrition before, during and after intense physical activity! And don’t forget to get off your sofa and #BEACTIVE!

Tip of the week:

After exercising, you might feel quite dehydrated, and your body is telling you something! Dehydration can make you feel tired and affect your athletic performance. Make sure to drink plenty of liquids like water or a sports drink after exercising. Sports drinks are a great option if you sweat a lot and need to replenish sodium and other vitamin and mineral levels.
