Soccer Nutrition

Soccer is a physically demanding sport that requires strength, speed, agility and endurance. Unlike many team sports, soccer players sometimes play the entire 45 minutes of each half without a substitution. During this time, the athlete is continuously moving, running, jumping and sprinting. Studies have shown that the average soccer player can run upwards of 7 miles per game. Without proper fueling, soccer players will not be able to maintain a high level of performance. When a soccer player has not been eating properly, or hydrating adequately it becomes obvious within a short period of time. Their stamina decreases quickly, they slow down, and they are not as capable of dealing with the physical and mental aspects of the sport. This will increase the likelihood of  injuries, cramps, concussions, sprains and muscle tears. Fueling for soccer requires consistency to keep up with the demands of the sport. Whether it is because of a lack of time or neglect, many athletes skip meals and fail to hydrate fully, leading to fatigue, heavy legs and muscle cramps. Having a plan for fueling and hydrating will ensure that your body stays strong and recovers well through all phases of training. Nutrition for Soccer The primary fuel for soccer is carbohydrates. In order to compete optimally a soccer  player requires 40-60 percent of their daily caloric intake to come from carbohydrates, 20-40 % from protein...
