Part of doing your best on game day is making sure you body has adequate fuel to maximize your performance. The question is what should you eat and when should you be eating it?
This is not as simple an answer as you might think. While there is definitely better food choices, (sorry Baconator fans) most of the energy for your workout does not come food you’ve just recently eaten. It comes from the carbohydrates and fat that are stored in your muscles, liver and fat cells. That enough fuel to keep you going for 1-2 hours of intense activity.
