What to eat to peak performance

Well, what do you eat to peak performance? This blog is more of a question than an answer, though I will give you my small nutritional strategy to really get fired up come training time. I will update this thread over time as people post in it, but feel free to lay out any nutritional strategy you use for any type of event/sport/whatever.

Ok, so here is how I peak vert/speed:

Day before peaking
- Eat big, get in enough water, protein, milk, etc
- My main meal will be a stir fry, tons of veggies and two potatoes. That night, before sleeping, I will eat somewhere between 6-7 bananas, with a few glasses of milk, and some kind of sandwhich (turkey and cheese, or lately, peanutbutter). The point is, this day I get alot of calories in, then I eat tons of fiber before sleeping, so that I really get out alot of that waste throughout the next day (after waking up).

Day of peaking 2
- Here are two scenarios that I used to peak my jump that day. Both days I felt great.

bw = 162
soreness = nothing
aches/injuries = left plantar fasciae/heel


PRE-DUNK-SESSION DIET: (some people here will want to know)
- BW = 162
- 2:30pm: wakeup: glass of whole milk + instant coffee mixed in + 2 sweet`n`low , water + propel
- 4:00pm: small amounts of water + propel
- 6:00pm: 75% of glass of whole milk
- 7:00pm: small turkey sandwhich + pickle + 75% glass of milk
- BW = 162
- 9:00pm = dunks
- after jump session: eat big

bw = 164 <- wtf
soreness = none, well left bicep is sore from those lunges
aches/injuries = left heel a little, back a little

peaking diet, prior to jumping:
3pm = 2 cup milk + caffeine (2 teaspoons instant coffee)
4:30pm = arizona ginseng/tea drink
6pm = turkey and cheese sandwhich
7:30pm = arizona ginseng/tea drink + banana
jump session = 9pm
after jump session: eat big...




so how do you peak? I know vag/dcjh have strategies, let's hear em! let's hear em` from some lurkers too!

peace
