Jan was nice enough to share an email that was sent to her by Olive's Team Manager:
In order to keep your self well hydrated, you need to drink well at least 16 hours before the match, several times during the match and a few hours after it's over. You can start by drinking plain water. It's a good idea to use a sports drink in your light pre game meal as a source of carb fuel for the upcoming effort.Try drinking sips of a sports drink during the match as well. Don't drink too much, however, short sips can replenish your carbohydrate storage and fluids, keeping you at 100% performance at all times.
Right after the match has ended, drinking some carb rich fluid will help you relax and replenish your energies faster, so you won't feel as tired as you would otherwise.
Oranges at Halftime:
Orange halves are a healthy and easy-to-eat snack for you during half time. Oranges are loaded with vitamin C, which helps to boost energy. This fruit is also a carbohydrate and provides athletes with fuel and stamina, notes Kids Health. Eating orange halves at half time will also help keep you hydrated, as oranges have high water content.
How you play on game day depends on what you eat and drink for a few days before, not what you ate a few hours before. Tournament meals will replace some of the energy you've used up, but most of the energy you'll use in a game comes from what you ate the day before a game, not what you ate the day of the game.
Eat healthy all the time -- fruits, vegetables, salads, pastas, whole grain cereals and breads -- drink lots of water and get enough sleep and you'll be ready to play hard.
You should be eating lots of carbohydrates -- starches from whole-grain breads, pasta, cereal, rice and lentils and sugar from fruits and vegetables. Carbs are what give you power and stamina in strenuous exercise lasting longer than an hour (like a soccer game, duh!).
What you eat when is important.
If you gobble french fries an hour before a game, you will feel like the soccer ball is in your stomach, not on the field! That's because when you're playing hard your heart sends a lot of blood to your muscles instead of to your digestive system. Whatever you ate just sits in your stomach, undigested, causing cramps and gas.Here's a good rule for when to eat what:
Big meal: 3-4 hours before a game
Light lunch: 2-3 hours before a game
Snack or "power shake": 1-2 hours before a gameDo the math.
For evening games, eat a good breakfast, fill up at lunch time with a big meal like pasta and salad or chicken and rice, (whatever you would usually eat for dinner) Then have a light "lunch" late in the afternoon.
For tournaments, where you usually have a morning game, you have to eat a good dinner and a bedtime snack the night before. Then have breakfast at least two hours before the game, just a snack if you slept in. Lunch between games should be light, something that will get digested before the next game. Unfortunately, that lets out pizza, which has lots of cheese and pepperoni (high-fat items that stay around in your stomach for three to four hours).
Hearty, Healthy Dinner
