Skipping breakfast is common by those that exercise in the morning, but healthy carbs are needed after an overnight fast. A meal before a workout should be low in fat because fat takes longer to digest, which can cause an upset stomach. High-fibre foods may also cause some stomach upset, so it's best to avoid these foods until after the game. A Herbalife24 Formula 1 Sport shake is good option for a pre-workout meal as its easy to digest and, highly nutritious. Option to make with water just before a workout as then only 90 calories but you are still topping up your fuel tanks.

The Importance Of Nutrients
"Science shows that proper nutrition at the cellular level is at least as important to both health and athletic performance as strength training, cardiovascular training, and recovery time. In fact, it’s the foundation for everything else. When you’ve trained as hard as you can, supplementing your diet with nutrients designed specifically to boost muscle growth, recovery, circulation, energy efficiency, and resilience of muscle fibers and connective tissue make all the difference."
