Game Day Nutrition
It took a while for me to realize that nutrition and sleep play a vital role in how you perform as an athlete. Fuelling your body optimally is of the utmost importance if you want to ensure the best possible outcomes of your efforts.
I wish I had known how easy it is move the needle on athletic performance when I was younger. When I was in university, we had a “nutritionist” support our hockey team, but she was really only trying to sell the team supplements in the form of bars and shakes.
It wasn’t until I started doing my own research when I was playing professionally, that I realized how correlated my energy and strength levels were with what I consumed.
I’ve put together a few easy-to-read resources that I hope will help young players understand the value, and simplicity behind enhancing performance with nutrition and hydration.
