November 14, 2008, Newsletter Issue #352: Donīt Skip Meals

Tip of the Week

You may be so dazzled by your triple-jump time you forget lunch. Don't, and don't rely on a sports nutrition supplement.

Performance in moderate-to-high intensity exercise of 35-40 minutes duration was better when a meal was eaten 3 hours before exercise than when the previous meal was 6 hours before exercise, in a study in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition. The meal used in the study's sports nutrition diet was moderate to high carbohydrate, low fat, and low protein. Donīt skip meals before competition or training.
