3 Quick Tips on what to eat before a race

1. Keep it simple

Make your food easy to prepare, or have it ready to go the night before. You don’t need a fancy meal to get the nutrients and energy you need to have a successful race

2. Eat something easily digested

Go for white bread and easily digested cereals as apposed to whole grains as whole grains can potentially cause stomach upsets due to the length of time they sit in the gastrointestinal track and take to break down

3. Foods that will give you energy

Simple carbs are great for this. Think Jam, Honey, Nutella, Vegemite on white toast or English muffins. Bananas and/or sultanas added to cornflakes are also simple but effective
