Battle of Mint Hill Nutrition tips…

Breakfast; Eat this 2-3 hours prior to your first heat. The fat Oatmeal recipe would be a great fit here!

20-30 mins after each event; scoop of whey protein + 1 banana or some other soft fruit.

Throughout the remainder of the day you will want to “graze” on some healthy fats and soft/liquid carbohydrates.

“If” you have at least 2 hours between events you may eat a real meal. My “go to” is shredded chicken and sweet potatoes. Again, small portions.

Reason being, if you eat a big meal that requires blood in the mid-section to digest you will not have that blood in your extremities (arms & legs) where you need it during the workout.

Very important tomorrow…STAY HYDRATED! It’s going to be hot, and water alone won’t cut it. A 50/50 blend of Gatorade and water will help replenish electrolytes. Be sure to bring more water and food than you think you need. Never assume it will be provided for you….I’ve learned that the hard way over the years.

Hope this helps a little. If you want more specifics feel free to give me a call or shoot me a text.

Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!!
