Breakfast of Champions?

Just wondering what kind of breakfast everybody eats in the morning before you're leaving for a tournament.

Plate of spaghetti, no sauce, limited cheese. Milk, Orange juice, and 45 minutes before gametime a small gatorade. So carboloading and hydrating.

correct me if Im wrong (i may not have been listening too well in health class), but I thought that eating high-carb foods the morning before a taxing event isnt what ur supposed to do because the energy isnt released fast enough. I thought you were supposed to eat those high-carb meals the night before. I could be wrong though

I usually don't like eating a lot for breakfast when I play. Lots of orange juice, and either some cereal or yogurt. I get my energy from the plate of pasta the night before heh. And drink lots of water and gatorade during the day. I just don't feel hungry on the field, sometimes I'll have a granola bar or some candy, but my stomach generally stays empty til dinnertime.

It would be true that you are supposed to eat it the night before, but since I eat around 4 in the morning to begin play around 11:00, it works out pretty well. I used to eat the night before and wake up later, but then I couldn't eat anything in the morning since I didn't feel right when I got out to the field. So since I have trouble sleeping the night before anyway, I figured I might as well do it this way. I couldn't tell you if it truly works or not, but it seems to for me, and that's all I need.

Gatorade is for hydration not carbs. The main reason for performance drop off during physical exertion is dehydration. Basically, by the time you are thirsty, you have already seen a big drop off in performance. So it is good to drink before exertion, but not so much to where you have to go to the bathroom.

True, but when I drink it I am not thirsty, I'm drinking it for the future, so I want something with a little taste.
