I play a few times a week, mostly pickup games nothing close to playing actual league games. Also my job is pretty physically demanding. But if you are asking if I go to a gym and work out then the answer is no. I thought maybe this could be the problem but wouldn't it affected me all the time instead of some of the times?

Ah that also makes sense. I was always told a good carb meal 3-4 hours before game time would be good. I'll try eating earlier or cut down on such a carb heavy meal.
