Soccer Nutrition Tips

Today guest Tavis Piattoly is giving us soccer nutrition tips. 

Tavis is a Sports Dietitian and Nutrition Consultant for the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Hornets. He is co founder of High School Sports Nutrition and he's doing a guest video for OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. 

Taking care of your body and eating right is important because good nutrition is the missing link to athletic performance. Eating well gives us the ability to reach a healthy body fat, helps us recover faster, reduces our risk of illness, improves our strength, and improves the healing process after injuries. 


Key Points:

1. For athletes, the first rule of thumb is to develop a habit of eating. Eating every 3-4 hours has been scientifically proven to improve energy, strength, and lower body fat. 

2. Breakfast is more critical than you think. Skipping breakfast will lead to a loss of muscle, strength, and an increase in body fat.

3. Avoid sports drinks unless you are training or competing for more than 60 minutes. Sports drinks have too much sugar and could cause an increase in body fat if used incorrectly. 

4. Trash the supplements as you may be doing more harm than good. Most supplements marketed to athletes today are over-priced and don't have the correct formulas to do what they say they do. 


What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 

The biggest issue I see with athletes at all levels is eating at the correct time. Timing your nutrition plays a huge role in making sure you have the energy to perform as well as the ability to build muscle and help it recover. In addition, going longer than 4-5 hours without eating is the number one reason athletes are not gaining weight, losing muscle, and adding body fat.
