(FAQ) What are recommended foods during competition?

(About the Author)

Most tournaments are done in a day or two. Some last longer. You are going to have to consume some food. Don’t eat foods that will bloat you, slow you down, or otherwise interfere with your concentration.

Avoid these:

  • Sugar-based drinks - sodas, pop, fountain drinks, etc.
  • Candy - bars, boxed, bagged, etc.
  • Bagged snacks - corn chips, potato chips, cheese puffs, etc.
  • Starchy foods - potatoes, breads, corn, rice, etc.
  • Anything deep-fried - French fries, onion rings, etc.
  • Over-eating anything.

Recommended snacks (in moderation):

  • Cheese - sticks, slices.
  • Meat snacks - jerky, meat sticks.
  • Home-made items - hard-boiled eggs, sliced veggies (carrots, broccoli, celery, radishes, etc.) with a ranch dip.
  • Nuts - peanuts, cashews, mixed.
  • Fruit - fresh (or canned in juice or light syrup), oranges, applies, pears, bananas.

Recommended meals, the day of the competition:

  • Breakfast - two to three eggs any style, sausage, bacon, toast, with milk and coffee or tea (no potatoes or rice).
  • Lunch - 1/4 or 1/3 lb. beef sandwich (hamburger or steak) or a mini steak with a side of veggies, with milk and coffee or tea (no potatoes or rice).
  • Supper - make this a light dinner, 1/3 pound of meat with vegetables only (no potatoes or rice or dessert). If you don't have time for this meal, stick with meat and cheese snacks.

Only use the snacks when you have a slight edge of hunger. Basically, you want to keep your stomach from distracting you.
