Thread: How do I rehydrate and get energy before actual match?

  1. #1

    Default How do I rehydrate and get energy before actual match?

    This is basically true of most people, when you don't eat and you dehydrate, often times you get painstaking headaches and feel like super shit. When you start eating again, your stomach hurts.


    Anyways, if I'm close on weight, I'll probably not eat (or at least not much at all) until I weigh in that day. (Only for that day)

    But by then, I'm already starting to feel like crap. I don't want to have to eat and then not make weight....

    So basically, after weighing and not having eaten, since I have an hour before the meet starts should I eat? and If I eat how much should I eat so that I don't feel even worse because after not eating, eating too much upsets your stomach.

    A tip I recieved from a site.

    Try this:
    take two tablespoons of natural peanut butter and mix it with one scoop of protein then spread on one/two slices of whole grain bread.

    Fills your stomach up without the bloating.

    Eat a bannana first, then two tablespoons of honey, and then after 30 minutes eat 1/2 a bagel with cream cheese. Throughout a tournament you should continue to eat string cheese, a fruit/nut mix, to sustain energy. As far as rehydrating, stick to water.

    But see that's for tournaments.
    I'm mainly worried about getting re-energized for duals in that short time

    Pedialite, people know it as a kid drink but adults use it too.
    Also the pretty obvious you shouldn't have to cut a lot if you are eating healthy and losing it the smart way until its maybe an easy 2 pounds and shouldn't hurt you.
    Eat some fruits, and simple sugars.

    This is a REPOST but it still applies, enjoy!

    Here is the best secret in the world on hydration:

    You need to drink ALKALIZED/IONIZED water.


    It will not only hydrate your body better then bottled water or tap water, it will also eliminate cellular acidic waste AND mucoid plaque that builds in the intestinal walls that no amount of sit ups or cardio will ever get rid of.

    Additionally alkalized/ionized water repairs the body after workout faster then just about anything you could consume. You will be amazed at your recovery time after workouts & the soreness will disappear. The ionization repairs free radical damage, (premature aging) as well.

    By tests it also increases your body's ability to absorb oxygen, (VO2) several points hence you muscles & workouts become more efficient. Top athletes are starting to discover this for themselves and are incorporating it into their routines.

    Another thing to take is Aerobic oxygen. Adding that to your water will also help you workouts & recovery time.

    For your diet, check your blood type & I recommend reading "Eating right for your Blood type". I am a blood type A & my body does better with low amounts of animal protein & better on proteins that are lower on the food chain, (wheat grass, barley grass, edible algaes). You find that it is difficult to lose weight as you are consuming foods that are NOT right for your blood type.

    Eliminate any & all carbonated drinks as they are VERY ACIDIC especially ones with high fructose corn syrup, (HFCS) & other simple sugars. THIS MEANS SPORTS DRINKS AS WELL. NO GATORADE NO POWERADE. It is very acidic & horrible for the body. You need minerals & salts when working out but not when mixed with HFCS. Natural coconut juice is one example of a source of minerals you need. So is wheatgrass juice. One ounce has as much nutrition as a pound of salad. It will give you an incredible energy boost with just about zero calories.

    Stay away from also from white bread & white sugar and anything refined including sports bars. Try whole food bars instead.

    If you do some of these things you will be amazed at how much lean muscle you gain, (denser muscle tissue) & how much unnecessary weight disappears as well an overall energy & sense of well being.

    Some supplementation might be necessary but remember that unless they are derived from a food source then your body does not really absorb them.If you have any other Qs about what I wrote pls feel free to write me.
