Importance of Nutrition and Eating Healthy!

5 Nutrition Tips Field Hockey Players should always remember!
1. Start your day the right way – It’s important to fuel your body up with healthy food in the morning – it sets you up for the rest of the day.
2. Getting enough protein is important – You’re doing a ton of exercising and training, which means you’re also expending a ton of energy. With all the energy that goes out, it’s important to remember that you should be replacing it consistently, which means you may need more protein than the average person.
3. It’s not just about what, but also when – You should plan to eat something every 3-4 hours, but also 2-3 hours before any kind of training. So, it’s worthwhile to plan ahead so you have plenty of healthy foods on hand to fuel your body around practice and training times!
4. Give yourself time to recover –  the actual training and practice time is important, but you can’t be going 100 miles per hour all the time – you have to take a breather every once in a while! Along with resting your body and letting muscles heal, it’s important to refuel your body with food that’ll help the process along.
5. This is no time to starve – You’re expending considerable amounts of energy on a consistent basis, so making sure you’re eating enough is crucial.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a treat; you work hard and deserve one! – just remember that there needs to be a balance.
