Being a top athlete within your sport doesn’t solely depend on how hard you train, although it helps! The most important thing to remember is that you as an athlete are responsible for how efficiently you fuel your body. Just like a car can’t function without gas, athlete’s cannot perform without nutrients.
Understandably, an athletic lifestyle can include a very overwhelming schedule, no matter which level you’re playing at. It can be difficult to prepare meals and easy to grab the foods that provide a quick source of energy. In order to be the top of your game, replacing nourishment with convenience is not the best habit to be in.
