Nutrition: What & When to Eat Before Games

"What should I eat before a game/ practice/ training?" 

This is a question we get ALL the time.  

The goal is to eat carbohydrates for some energy with protein.

The closer we get to the event, the less fat we want to eat because fat will slow down digestion and that is not good around physical activity.


Also, as we get closer to activity, we reduce the amount of calories consumed, so we don't get a feeling of a heavy gut, or honestly, so we don't throw up during activity.


How much you eat will be determined by each athlete.


Some are ok eating more and then competing, others don't want to eat at all.


Here are some great examples of what to eat and when.

Mindset: Control Your A.P.E.

One of the best lessons in sports, is you can't control everything but, you can control your attitude, your preparation and the level of effort you give to everything you do.  Stay focused on the things you can control, don't worry about the rest.
