You should eat rice crispie cereal. It is supposed to help you not get cramps when you are running and give you can extra boost of energy. Pasta is also very good because of the carbs. You shouldn't eat too soon before a game. You should have at least an hour before the work out or match. You want the foods, mostly carbs, pasta and the like to be well into the digestion process before calling on the body to exert itself. I avoid acidic foods before exertion, tomato sauce is a big no-no for me until after a match.

Yes, unless you have a weak stomach then you should probably eat pasta.

High energy foods, carbohydrates or isotonic drinks.

at least an hour if not more but dont eat greasy foods before the game. eat like a salad or something that gives u energy but not anything big. and the night before a game try to eat noodles. they give u energy for the game ideally two hours before a game, eating pasta and potatoes will boost your carbohydrate levels to give you more energy.

One should eat eggs 20-30 mins before a netball game.

You should eat banana, but eat it about 2-3 hours before you eat. Another thing you can do is, the night before your football game, eat pasta. Pasta is rich in fiber and has a complex carbohydrates which is what athletes need.

Carbohydrates are the best thing for you to eat "before" a game (best a couple of days before or the evening before the game). This includes things such as:PastaCerealsGrainsBreadRiceFruit & VegCrackersBagelsThe reason why these are the best things to eat is that they are most efficient food for the bodies energy also have a soccer game also so im eating pasta and bread!!

Something that won't stuff you up but something something that gives you energy, like fruits, maybe a banana or an apple.

No. You should eat fruit before the game.

you should eat a lot of carbohydrates to give you energy eg.potatoes, pasta,rice

You should eat a lot of pasta with butter and have acandy bar 2 hours before gametime

Don't eat too much. You should have "carbed up" the night before, and you shouldn't eat much on game day. Hydration is very critical, and you need to start the game with a few sips of water, partularly if it's warm or hot. Something with protein in it so you will have lots of energy. You are supposed to be done eating an hour before you have to play, so your food has time to digest. It is better to play a game of soccer on an empty stomach rather than a full one.

no not smart ive ate mcdonalds before my wrestling match and almost lost to a GIRL.....

a athlete should eat something healthy before having a game maybe something with carbohydrates and a bit of fat to get the energy rising

spaghetti, has a lot of carbohydrates, its good for you.

Eat a very very light meal like bread or if you can eat after. Preztels are good before hand also.(p.s. this is coming from a girl who plays soccer.) some sort of pasta but like the answer above not too much you don't want to feel bloated before a game.

pasta and drink water not G2 or Gatorade not good for you

You should not eat right before a competition becuase you may feel nervous and throw up. You should at least eat 30min. before a competition

If you are talking about a football player than they should eat vegetable's fit and healthy.If someone is a baseball player or soccer player they should eat the same thing.

Just a light snack, maybe an energy bar and energy drink or some fruit and water. Nothing too heavy or it may cause them to feel slickly during the match.

No, not if it's eaten without added oils and fats and ate in moderation. It's definitely not bad for you if you eat it before strenuous activity like before a hockey game or soccer game because it gives you the needed energy to keep you going.
