Pre and Post-Workout
- Eating protein before a workout has benefits – the protein is in the body before it is needed. Just don’t eat too much “heavy” food that may upset your stomach. Eggs or a protein shake are light sources.
- Eating during a workout is no necessary unless you are training for an extended period of time – ie: marathon training where sessions last over 2 hours.
- Research has shown that taking BCAA during a workout can benefit muscle synthesis
- Eat a snack of light meal within 30 minutes of finishing your training or competition
- Eat again 1 hour later
Fuel the Hunger
Jacques has created a system called Fuel the Hunger, a blueprint on eating well for performance. The program is designed to help athletes find the foods and eating pattern that works best for them to improve training results and reach peak performance levels. A better choice of foods and a plan of when to eat them will maximize energy levels, muscle efficiency and mental clarity so they are not sacrificing critical position to a weaker opponent. The knowledge gained will help the athlete to transition to a healthy, life-long pattern of eating that will keep them vibrant and reduce the risk of serious illness.
