I notice this pro likes to eat bananas. But are there any other alternatives? I find bananas to be too filling and it slows down my game.

Can anyone recommend other food sources that are rich in potassium?

Thanks. Very simple yet effective advice.

ph, was told 20 yrs ago that a ripe tomato has over 3 times the potassium of a banana and along with oranges for magnesium work far better for cramps than bananas. Plus you can make your own tomato juice which may get absorbed faster.

Cool. I'll try that out before my next match/practice.
