You need to load up on the carbs for performance training and stock up your glycogen storage.

Something like Protein 15% - Carbs 65% - Fat 20% if I remember correctly.

Go with complex carbs and fruit.

I would suggest say a bowl of oats or weetabix and a chopped banana along with some scrambled eggs, cup of black coffee. Then keep the fluids up and sip on a sports drink nearer the match. Or try a sports bar an hour before the game if still hungry.

evening, been busy doing my thesis and something for coaching which went tits up tonight.

Anyhow, i know this reply is late BUT may be of some us for the future.

Its suggested that low-medium gi foods like wholemeal bread, oatmeal etc are the types of carbs to have before exercise and high gi carbs such as pasta and potatoes after exercise. This may seem a bit the wrong way round as youd think hi gi carbs to cause a greater response by the body to increase sugar levels supplying greater energy, but this doesnt appear to actually help in the long run. This is just a day to day guide, but in terms of what to eat i.e a day or two before or even a month before exercise (e.g things like marathons) you then go into the concept of glycogen loading which is another story

the other thing is hydration, as ive said, in the next couple of weeks ill post my abstract of my thesis up which is on hydration to give people info on it and ideas of what to drink, when to drink and how much to drink

Before I found the gym I used to race Mountain Bikes. I found a large carb meal the day before also helped. Not to late, early evening.

THe race was usually in the morning though so you may get away with loading in the morning. Personally I struggle to eat a lot first thing though.
