Usually my go to meal pre match is some pasta. 3-4 hours prior, 1/3 cup of pasta and a Clif bar, 1 hour prior a banana. Good for my usual 1.5-2.5 hour match. Give me plenty of gas in the tank, even if I get tired. I've done a lot of trial and error with other foods, and have found that pasta works best for me BUT....due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to play 6 days of singles in the last 8 days. Needless to say, I'm sick of pasta. My last day I got a few rolls of sushi, but felt like I ran out of gas towards the end. Tired and out of gas, not a good thing. Curious if people had alternatives to pasta, and what some of you eat pre-match. Here's what else I've tried: Rice (white & brown) - doesn't give me the same amount of fuel, and I'd have to eat more than I can tolerate to get the same effect as the pasta Whole wheat pasta - prob in my head, but I felt the WW I couldn't get the carbs into my system fast enough. But no more pasta Potatoes - gives me good fuel like pasta, but again, I can't eat enough to get the same amount of fuel like pasta. Not a fan of sweet potatos. Never tried bagels as usually most of my matches are at night. Thanks in advance for responses and alternatives.
