AIS Gives Dairy the Thumbs Up

The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) is recommending the nation’s top athletes incorporate dairy foods more strategically into their diets, following
new research, supported by Dairy Australia, which was launched last month.

The study found that eating a dairy-based meal before cycling helped counteract the loss of calcium in sweat and reduce the bone breakdown that would otherwise
occur.
In a separate piece of research, the AIS also examined the effect of high intakes of dairy on gut comfort and time trial performance in their cyclists,
shattering the myth that eating dairy before exercise causes stomach upsets.
According to the research team: “We were delighted to find that even pushing the pre-ride meal to include the entire amount of the day’s dairy intake
guidelines had no detrimental effects on gut comfort or performance in cycling. So we feel confident about our recommendations around the various
benefits of dairy before exercise.”
