Mail Time! vol. 2– What Should I Be Eating the Day Before and the Day of a Race
No doubt one of the most frequent questions I get from all you tough and bold Racers deals with nutrition the day before and the day of a race. So I am going to combine all the questions into one and thank you all for taking the time to write and ask.
The day before:
Normal breakfast according the principles in my Top Fuel Nutrition Guide
A very hearty lunch including some indulgences that maybe aren't on the Top Fuel list
A normal to slightly lighter than normal dinner. I do not recommend your dinner the day before a race being your largest meal of the day. Take in the bulk of your calories at lunch.
Breakfast--fruit (bananas are awesome and do a great job of filling you up), yogurt, nuts, have water and lay off the coffee. 100% grape juice if you just can't do water early in the morning
pre race-- watery fruits (pears, plums, apples, oranges), as much water as you want, and a power bar or two, bananas are awesome too.
