Diet chart for lacrosse players
Before you start the game it is important that you control on your food habit. If you tend to play more than 2-4 games in a day then it is important that you follow a regular diet. Remember if you eat junk food it will affect your game.
You must include a lot of protein in your daily food schedule and you can get it from vegetables and fruits. Fish, turkey, egg, pork, lean beef and chicken are also good source of protein.
Whatever we eat a portion of the fat stored in the body so avoid intaking extra fried foods. You can use butter but limit it to a very little amount. Avoid hydrogenated fat like margarine and peanut butter, cookies and crackers are also counted in this list. It is so because it contains hydrogenated oils in them. These kind of fat deposits like a sludge in your veins which reduce the oxygen carrying capacity. This means that you will breathe out more than you can intake.
Use raw nut which is the best source of food on your tournament and you can also eat it as snacks in your daily diet schedule. You can eat as much as you want says even 2 handfuls of nuts in an hour. Say no to white flour and sugar as both of them contains short carbohydrate chains. It slows down the energy level afterwards although just after the consumption it tends to increase the energy level. Pasta, bread and other wholegrain foods are highly recommend for lacrosse players.
Use less salt in your food and take 3 to 4 servings of vegetables every day. Eat raw vegetables as they are good source of protein and fibers. Take food serving during the snacks as it can keep your stomach light and also partially full at the same time.
