What types of food should one eat before athletic competition? In my salad days, I could enjoy fast food, go out, and kick ass; but now in my fat adult days, I cna't really get a good grip on what to eat.

I can eat pretty much anything (I actually eat very healthily, anyways, though) and not see a dropoff in performance. These days, it seems like everything is bad for you in some way. For example, supposedly, turkey sandwiches are not good before competition because they have tryptophan or whatever. I've never noticed any effect. I just make sure I'm not too full, not too hungry, and bring water or gatorade or something.

On another note, it's interesting to see how fitness can deteriorate over time. I played tennis competitively through high school and was pretty good (started on a team that placed 3rd in state), so some of the skills would carry over when I played pickup basketball. I then pretty much quit tennis after high school, and I've noticed when playing basketball that my lateral quickness is much worse, and I can't play as tight D as I used to. While my endurance is still pretty good, I can tell that I tire out faster than I used to when I had to train for tennis.

You want light carbs before aerobic exercise. Pasta with vegetarian sauce or something.

Before weightlifting, you want just a little bit of carbs and the day before you'd want protein (best is tuna, then salmon, then chicken, then beef).

Yeah, but do you ever feel like if you follow these guidelines you feel notably better or stronger or whatever? I've never really felt I've performed any differently when following these guidelines.

You don't feel it as much when you're 19. Wait till you're older. Eating fast food now makes me feel really tired. Used to be i could eat a quarter pounder as a snack between meals. If i tried that now, i'd probably be sleeping 14 hours a day.

Yeah, I don't really eat that stuff anyways, but I'll definitely buy that explanation.

Same here. My vice, Popeyes fried chicken, used to be fuel for me. Now, if I eat more than three pieces, I am comatose.

Good point. Sitting at a desk all day can't be that good for your metabolism no matter what you do before or after work.
