As a basketball player, I always wondered how vital of a role food and nutrition had in my playing ability. During a camp one summer there was a nutrition specialist there and I asked him this question, “does it really matter what we eat before a game?” All I can say is that he laughed for a bit and then compared our bodies to cars and the fuel that we put into them. If we put junk in our cars they don’t drive well and the same is true of our bodies. I took what he said very seriously and will never forget the recommendations he gave us. This article will summarize his advice and will serve as a guide for basketball players looking to improve their playing ability simply by being smart about what they eat and drink.
When I was growing up Gatorade wasn’t nearly as popular as it is today. If you got Gatorade you were considered lucky. Today we have so many choices of products to keep us hydrated it is amazing. From Propel to energy drinks to regular water. I don’t and won’t ever recommend an energy drink as something to take immediately before a sporting event. I don’t think it is healthy and I don’t think we have enough study materials to prove if it is safe or not. The caffeine and sugars that are typically in those drinks creates a quick fix but causes a lag as the game goes on. For simple hydration water is generally the safest bet. It is recommended that a player should drink over a gallon of water a day. That’s a lot of water, but if you compare it to the amount of sweat that you are producing it really isn’t that much. The more water you drink the more energy you will have and the better you will feel. One of the worst things you can do as an athlete is not drink enough.

You can take a sip of water or suck on an ice cube right after surgery but you shouldn’t drink more than this. This is because of the fact that you shouldn’t stretch the small stomach pouch being held by the Lap-Band. Drinking too much will cause you to vomit or even increase the chances of the stomach tissue to slip through the band. If slipping happens, an emergency procedure may be required. You can drink a little more fluid the day after your surgery but it is important to drink small amount of fluids at a time. Aside from water, you can also choose to drink clear liquids that have a sufficient amount of calories but as mentioned, don’t drink too much to avoid vomiting and nausea.
