Smart Snacking for Athletes

A good nutrition plan for an athlete encompasses four meals PLUS two to three snacks per day to ensure proper fueling and energy levels are met. If you’re going more than three hours between meals, try to grab a small snack to maintain good energy levels. Eating frequently throughout the day is the best way to keep your metabolism in check as well as prevent muscle from being burned/lost. Try to eat one meal right before bed that is high in protein, but low in carbs and fat.
