Im in my senior year of high school and when football was going on we would gather at a persons house that was a senior and usually eat pasta or any type of spaghetti and boy was it good, but as well as the energy.

My primary focus was on not losing a bunch of fluid by puking if I went too hard for too long. One of my dad's old friends was a Navy boiler room operator during WWII, where the temperatures could hit over 150 degrees and a guy could sweat out 5-10% of his body weight in an eight- or ten-hour shift. I asked him how they did it day after day, and he said that they would chug at least three quarts of water before starting their shift....the water would also have a bunch of oatmeal mixed into it so that the body wouldn't reject it.

So before any type of hard exercise, I always had either dry oatmeal with water on the side or prepared oatmeal anywhere from one to three hours beforehand. I never once got sick from exertion after that. Peter Forsberg used to do the same thing, although I don't know if his was superstition or if it was based on the same reasoning.
so i have a question, i have a game on thursday around 8 pm, how would you go about doing the oatmeal? could i mix it with water and just drink it? or is it better to actually make the oatmeal?
