Pre-Game Meal

What do you think would be the best thing to eat before playing a hockey game?

Moderators: I was unsure which forum to post this in so please move it if it is in the wrong one



Thanks

Some form of carbohydrate (pasta, sandwich, etc).

Avoid steak at all costs.

For me, I have a game 2x a week...i have pasta 8 hours before the game and a monster engery drink 60 min befor the game.

Worked great for me.

Sometimes if im REALLY feeling like garbage ill eat a banana 70 minutes before a game as well.

At 22, im currently the best shape of my life..with that diet and drink...ive never been tired in the 3rd period yet and give 110% each shift.....

Banana is probably the last thing to eat, they generally cause you to crash.

Try pasta, but not too close, add a little protein like some turkey in there so that you don't spike sugar. Normally I mix it up before a game, but generally something sensible like veggies and chicken. Adding meat (not too much) gives you what I like to call a "drippy faucet" which is basically prolongs the carbs instead of spiking your sugar and crashing.

That's actually not bad at all, I'd say at least.

I liked eating a roast beef and tomato sandwich on a hero roll with water before I got to the rink, then at the rink I would have a big soft pretzel and a bottle of gatorade. When I was a sophomore and Junior, before my body succumb to injuries, I was able to play 25+ minutes per game. Our team stat keeper used to keep a log of my ice time and I once played a full month were my average ice time was 29 minutes per game, and I was always able to out work the other team at the end of games.

Well I've been losing weight since starting to play as an adult, so I have to watch my calories and blood sugar in addition to getting proper nutrition.

The thing that works best for me is a lot of complex carbs (whole wheat pasta and bread, whole grain rice, etc) and a bit of lean protein (chicken, skim milk cottage cheese, etc) several hours before the game.

Then about 30 minutes before ice time, I drink 1-2 glasses of fruit juice to flood my body with sugar. If I don't do that, I get hypoglycemic and light headed on the ice.

The worst thing is to eat a lot of fat and protein. If I ever have steak, or pasta with lots of olive oil, or a big hamburger, my body feels very warm and I'm very sluggish and tired on the ice.

Post game, I like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a tall glass of milk. I get plenty of sugar and protein to get in my blood stream quickly for repairs and the complex carbs and fat work longer term. And then I'll probably eat a small meal shortly thereafter.

it is good to have in your body but it's basically all sugar, you eat bananas after a workout if you get lightheaded to replenish sugar quickly.
