The so-called Tredici-Iacoponi-Arcelli diet it is a particular diet developed for anemic athletes or those with a tendency to iron deficiency anemia (or iron deficiency anemia).

This problem is particularly widespread among so-called “cross-country athletes” – such as marathon runners, triathletes, professional cyclists, etc. – because:

The problem of iron deficiency anemia is greater for females than males, considering the periodic losses of iron linked to menstrual flow and the less rich diet.

Athlete's anemia causes a decline in performance, with a sense of exhaustion, easy fatigue and difficulty in recovery.

In case of anemia, the values โ€‹โ€‹of erythrocytes (red blood cells), hematocrit and hemoglobin are low or very low.

Critical issues

The Tredici-Iacoponi-Arcelli diet does nothing more than put into practice, in some ways taking them to the extreme, the dietary advice that can help any person fight iron deficiency anemia. This is advice that is well rooted in clinical practice and therefore can be shared.

It should only be noted that, rather than taking in a lot of iron at once, for example by consuming a large steak, it would be preferable to include a small quantity of a food containing heme iron in each meal (for example a few slices of bresaola also included in breakfast and in snacks).
