The meal or snack eaten before training or your major event provides a chance to tweak your ability to meet the nutritional goals ahead. The importance of this meal can range from a crucial top up of fuel and fluid levels before a nutritionally challenging event, to a simple psychological boost from favour- ite menu choices or eating rituals. In all cases, your food and drink choices should leave you feeling comfortable and confident to start the event. You want to be able to perform at your best without experiencing either hunger or gut discomfort/upsets, and allow all of that hard work to pay off!
