Skipping breakfast is not an option, especially when you have early morning practice or lifting. If youâ€™re not overly hungry, try a lighter alternative such as a milk shake, yogurt, cereal or fruit, or even a sports drink and sports bar.
Athletes should consume about a Gallon of water every day! However drinking only water can flush the athletes system of necessary sodium, so along with water athletes should also consume sports drinks before and during workouts.
Organize the food on your plate into a peace sign. Break your plate into thirds, placing a protein in one-third, a starch [rice, pasta, potato] in a second, and a fruit and/or vegetable in the last.
Make sure to eat these â€œGood Fatsâ€ in your diet.

Eliminate â€œBad Fatsâ€ in your diet
ANYTHING FRIED!!!!, Trans Fats, Margarine.
