Fats and exercise
Fats are an integral part of the athlete's diet. Reducing the proportion of fat in the diet to 15% leads to a decrease in endurance and performance at least 10%. Fat reserves help maintain body temperature and protect the body from injuries. In addition, fat promotes the delivery and assimilation of fat-soluble vitamins and influences the structure of food. High-energy density of fats increases the value of food in the sense of saturation of the body.
