Food for golfers
In this post we are going to talk about the importance of food for golfers.
In golf, as in other sports, food is a key for its correct practice. It is very important to distinguish the daily diet from the specific food for our golf day.
We must keep in mind that this is a time consuming sport and one of the aspects to consider is the hydration, having to resort to isotonic drinks when the play time exceeds one hour, if necessary.
Choosing a healthy and a balanced diet is very necessary, as this would help us preventing injuries when we practice this sport.
We must eat fish 4 times a week, and avoid sweets or industrial pastries; 5 pieces of fruits/vegetables are essential and choosing non-fat dairy products. Regarding meat and legumes, we should eat it 3 times per week.
Specific food for a golf day
Due to good weather, in our golf course in Murcia, and other courses around, it is really hot; so hydration is a very important key as mentioned before.
On the other hand, concentration is very important and, a way to achieve it, is a correct diet the day we are going to play golf; for example, eating products which give us rapid absorption sugars, as fruits or juices, among them we must highlight the banana, which contains a lot of potassium.
Here you can find one example of a recommended diet for the day you are coming to our golf course in Murcia:
- For the breakfast prior to exercise, we would have a toast with 90 grams of ham.
- For the main meal we should eat a boiled potato with chicken breast and a salad in which we would add olive oil.
- For the snack time we would eat fruit, dried fruits and black chocolate.
We cannot forget that all meals will be accompanied by water or a hydrating drink, as orange juice or lemonade.
