Cimarron High Track Nutrition Recommendations
****EVERYTHING YOU EAT EITHER CLOGS AND DRAINS OR SUSTAINS AND ENERGIZES
BREAKFAST: High fiber, skim milk, fruit (Natural sugars also known a complex sugars) should be included. Lesson or drop sugar (simple sugars create hard peaks and valleys in blood sugar). No caffeine.
Add eggs to your day! One egg fulfills about 10 percent of your daily protein needs. Egg protein is the most complete food protein short of a human mother's milk, which means the protein in eggs contains all the crucial amino acids your hard working muscles need to promote recovery. Eat just one and you will get about 30 percent or the daily value for vitamin K, which is vital to healthy bones.
If you need a carb packed energy booster, it's hard to go wrong with bananas. Whole grain cereals or oatmeal with bananas are a huge plus.
MANDATORY: CAFFEINATED ENERGY DRINKS ARE FORBIDDEN!
IF YOUR LUNCH IS EARLY IN THE DAY: have a snack 6th period.
IF YOUR LUNCH IS LATE IN THE DAY: have a snack 3rd period.
* Ideal lunch has a low fat source of protein.
* By definition, starchy foods are rich in carbohydrates and natural sugars, and these nutrients contribute substantially to your body's daily needs for energy.Starchy foods come from a variety of food groups. All vegetables contain some level of starch, but peas, corn, and potatoes have the most starch. All grains contain starch, but whole grains, such as brown rice; whole wheat pasta; corn tortillas; and bran cereal are preferred grains because of their high nutritional value. Legumes, such as beans and lentils, are an excellent source of starch and dietary protein.
* Fried and high fat foods should be limited.
EXAMPLE OF GOOD LUNCH: Turkey sandwich with cheese, apple. crackers, sun chips...etc
DRINKING WATER CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY HELPS KEEP THE BLOOD SUGAR AND HYDRATION LEVELS CONSISTENT.
POST EXCERCISE SNACKS ARE A GREAT IDEA. THE SOONER YOU CAN REPLENISH YOUR MUSCLES, THE GREATER THE RECOVERY FROM THE DAYS WORKOUT...examples: sports bars, water, milk (chocolate milk is the best for recovery), fruit, granola....etc.
**STAY AWAY FROM VENDING MACHINES.....IT IS NOT CALLED "JUNK" FOOD FOR NOTHING!
DINNER: same rules apply. Remember that small meals often, with nutritional snacks when hungry, are better than large heavy meals. Carbs and low fat proteins should be the staple of your diet.
