– They miss it so much that I think a healthy sport sometimes feels like an unhealthy sport, says Peter Skinstad to Dagbladet.

«Healthy sport is an area of ​​focus of the Norwegian Sports Federation with the aim of disseminating knowledge about sports nutrition and promoting healthy sport environments with good attitudes and values ​​related to food, body, health and performance.“, Sunn idrett writes on his website.

The intention behind them is good, but they lack implementation. They create the impression that food must be very healthy, complex and expensive. I think this can cause disease, not prevent it, is the clear message from Skinstad.

Healthy sports respond to the criticism at the bottom of the article.

TV 2 I mentioned it first.

Ugly rumours


Skinstad is supported by a professor at the Norwegian Mathematical Academy, Jorun Sundgut-Borgen.

Healthy Sports has good intentions and is keen to teach young athletes what they should eat, but the challenge is not that young people do not eat healthy enough. Too many young athletes get too little to eat because they don’t dare eat anything other than what they consider or consider healthy, Sandgut says, and many of them suffer from eating disorders – and many have to give up their sport for this reason. -Borgen for the daily newspaper.

“It is therefore very important to know the extent to which what is conveyed affects young athletes – which has not been identified here,” she adds.

the answers

Dagbladet forwarded the criticisms from Skinstad and Sundgot-Borgen to Katja Ødegaard, coordinating advisor at Sunn iðrett.

Refer to the answer you provided TV 2But he adds:

– We have already invited Skinstad to a conversation where we want to inform him about our work, Odegaard writes in an email to Dagbladet.

Odegaard tells TV2:

– The criticism is completely inconsistent with the feedback we receive from both young people, parents and coaches. Plus, we wonder how he can explain us to the point that we worry so much about being extremely healthy. We rarely use the term “healthy eating,” precisely because we view it as a problem and one that can negatively affect young people and adults alike. Instead, we use the term “smart eating.”

However, she admits:

– It’s demanding, and we realize that we may not be communicating widely enough with our messages.

Angry against watermelon pizza

Skinstad thinks Sunn iðrett’s entire website looks like a pink blog. He praises the environment’s efforts to take care of girls, but explains that there are also boys who suffer from eating disorders.

– If there is one thing that an active young athlete, who has a sports, school and social life and a lot going on inside and outside the body, needs, it is nutrition. That doesn’t mean things have to be super healthy, Skinstad says.

Continue:

-I removed all the silly recipes out there, asked active people what they eat, and used their nutrition knowledge. Because I know that there are no high-level active athletes in Norway who eat watermelon pizza for breakfast. They eat coarse bread, oatmeal and regular food.

Statement of regret

Statement of regret


– The cross-country expert adds: “I am annoyed by what they write about eating during training, because it is very far from what is recommended in terms of carbohydrate intake and the like.”

Sundgot-Borgen agrees.

– Calling things by their real names; It is not difficult to eat enough and get enough energy and nutrition, but then young athletes, coaches and parents must experience that the dissemination of knowledge that occurs contributes to this, explains the professor.

It calls for more transparency.

– Don’t talk about how hard it is to eat enough food, or how hard it is to be in energy balance; If it gets difficult over time, the athlete needs professional follow-up to avoid serious eating disorders, notes Sundgut-Borgen.

Skinstad claims that Sunn iðrett is moving in a direction that makes him think something is fashionable, slim and should look good.

“I think it is disappointing that an initiative that was good in the beginning completely fails,” says Skinstad.

– Many crazy messages

He has already shared his frustration on X, formerly known as Twitter.

the post He has admired a number of figures, including cross-country coach Chris Jespersen, former jumper Maren Lundby and runner Caroline Berkeley Grovdal.

– I would say that there is a unanimous view in Norwegian sport that healthy sport has a long way to go. I can add that on Instagram I received a huge number of messages from world stars in their sports, from young and active adults, parents, coaches and leaders in sports – all saying the same thing, Skinstad claims.

Shocking story

He believes that healthy sports have an unhealthy focus on how healthy they should be.

Skinstad comes with somewhat shocking information:

– In fact, there are people who told me that they went to lectures with Sen Edret, and young athletic girls told me that after being there, they were left with the impression that they could not eat anything, and that they were completely wrong.

The expert intervenes:

– This is serious. The reason I raise my voice and speak up is because I have the opportunity to do so, and I want to influence the direction that makes it easier to be a young athlete in Norway. It’s hard enough with striving for achievement and social media and all that, so we shouldn’t have an initiative like Sunn Idrett that makes it harder.

What they have contributed so far has not been good enough, Skinstad sums up in conclusion.
