THE PREGAME MEAL:
If you want to play well, it is vital to eat right. There are some certain do's and don'ts that come to mind when pondering what to eat.
Eat healthy foods, especially meat (Steak, pork, chicken). Give yourself plenty of time to digest the food. Around 2-3 hours is sufficient. Stack up on the carbohydrates. They will give you the energy you need to keep on going.Finally, drink lots and lots of water. It will help clean out your system, and it doesn't get sticky in your throat, like pop does.
Consume fruits or vegetables. They are hard to digest and can give you gas. (The last thing you want to do is go into the butterfly and hear an explosion.) Eat right before a game; give your body time to digest the food. Otherwise, you may get sick.Those are the basics when it comes to the pregame meal. I admit that I have gone to a fast food restaurant 30 minutes before a game and pigged out on a Monster Burger, but I made a conscious effort to eat slow and to avoid that greasy artificial cheese.
