Nutrition Guidelines

Eat Right to Play Right - Nutrition for a Soccer Player

Your body is the most incredible creation in the world, but we take it for granted far too often. Stop for a second. Think about what is happening inside your body at this very moment...
-It is growing and re-creating itself right now
-Out of 100 trillion cells, it is replacing 2.5 million red blood cells every second
-It is self-regulating right now
-It is defending itself from millions of viruses and infections right now
The list goes on...

Your body is the vehicle you take through the journey. Take care of it, because you only get one. In fact, stop and look around you. You will see that some people take better care of their cars, homes, and other material treasures than they do their own bodies!

Nutrition needs to be a priority of an athlete's training. What you eat daily, weekly, and monthly will affect your energy level, performance, and overall health. Energy in means energy out! It is so important that a soccer player eats a well balanced diet high in complex carbohydrates and low in fats, which will help them to maximize their energy levels and perform at their optimal levels.

Proper nutrition not only benefits an athlete physically, but also mentally, and that is half the battle on the field. If the brain is not well fed, then the player will not play to the best of their ability. Without the right food, a player can suffer from the inability to concentrate, lethargy (feeling tired all over), having visual problems, muscle cramps, dizziness, and even passing out.

This nutritional packet is designed to take a simple look at how to take better care of your body. There are simple ideas and rules of thumb that many have lived by for the past 30 years.

Taking care of your body should be challenging but simple, hard but fun, and regimented but tasty.

I hope this guide helps you achieve your own personal health goals.
