    REMINDER: AVOID foods/meals high in fiber, fat or protein before you work out or have a competition. These foods digest SLOWLY and will decrease the rate of CARB absorption for fuel for your muscles AND they may cause nausea and bloating.
     
    Post- Practice Snacks (eaten 15-30 minutes After Practice) followed by a meal within 2 hours:
    REMINDER: Glycogen, or stored muscle energy, is used during a typical intense workout or competition.  Replenish muscle energy stores by choosing carbohydrate-rich foods within 30 minutes after a weight workout, practice, or competition and again within 2 hours. Protein rich foods eaten within the first two hours of a workout stop further muscle breakdown and aid in muscle repair, recovery, and growth. This is to ensure you stay at peak levels of fitness throughout the season!

    • ½ cup of nuts & granola and  a glass of milk
