Most health enthusiasts, student athletes and serious competitors have a busy lifestyle! It's common to grab hit or miss meals on the run, have no food plan for the day and show up for training and sporting events only to be left wondering:
Why do I feel so tired all the time?
Why haven’t my workouts gotten easier?
Why does my soccer team always lose in the last 10 minutes of the game?
What and when athletic people eat has a big impact on performance—more so than expected. As one marathoner remarked:
“I chopped a minute a mile off my long runs once I started eating adequate pre-run food. I was amazed at how much better I felt—and how much better I performed. I never thought that food could make that much of a difference. I’d always focused on training, more so than eating. I was wrong!”
Indeed, too many athletes show up for training, but they fail to show up for meals. They think improving their ability to perform starts with training harder when it actually starts with eating better. A race car with an empty gas tank doesn’t get very far! Same goes for an athletic body that is poorly fueled.
