Be Prepared for Match Days

A planned pre-match meal will never let you down. With energy boosting carbohydrates from the potatoes, you’ll be running well into injury-time while the nitric oxide in the beetroot will help fuel oxygen into your muscles, helping avoid cramps in the latter stages of a match. Good athletes  follow a strict diet, particularly on the day of a competitive match. While diet does not turn poor athletes into great ones, it can make the difference between performing poorly and delivering your best. Here is a summary below.

Do check with your certified nutritionist before taking up a diet to best suit your body.
