We should all try to maintain a healthy diet. According to the World Health Organization “Eating a healthy diet throughout life helps prevent malnutrition in all its forms, as well as different non genetically transmitted diseases and disorders”.
Even so, the consumption of ultra-processed foods has increased exponentially in recent years, unlike the consumption of healthy and fresh foods, which has decreased. This has a very negative impact, especially for the young population, which according to the Spanish Ministry of Health, already has an obesity percentage of 13,9% in Spain. The rates of childhood obesity are so high than the World Health Organization has declared it “one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century”. Whether it is to maintain a healthy weight, to loose weight or to gain it, keeping a balanced diet must be essential.
Diet has an even more important role when we are active and practice sports, since caloric consumption increases, and it’s necessary to adjust it according to the amount and intensity of the excercise performed. At HUMANOX, we are aware of the importance of a correct sports diet, and we have equipped our smart shin guards with technology that makes it possible to monitor your diet to maintain your sports performance.
The HX50 smart shin guards are capable of calculating the number of calories burned in each game or training session, and can also set a daily calorie goal. You can even check the accumulated weekly and monthly burned calories. Knowing all these metrics will allow you to reduce risk of injury, ensure a faster recovery and improve your performance while playing football.
