What do you recommend you eat before a soccer game and how long before a game should you start to eat it?

The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does.

milk from cows is not that good for you and niether are multi vitamin pills, unless you absolutely no fruits and vegetables. I would also recomend water over sports drinks.

milk???! no way! stick to water. milk's gonna be sloshing around in your stomach for the rest of the game. maybe it works for him, but in general, i'd say water's the way to go.

i have also heard that protein is not good because it doesn't digest quickly, so you might still be full or something, which is not the most comfortable thing during a game

Gatorade or Powerade ain't too bad either.

i always drink water or gatorade. they make this gatorade with extra electrolytes and minerals. it's called "endurance formula" or something, and that's usually the kind i drink.

I never drink Gatorade nor any sports drink, water is the purest and the best thing you can drink doing any sports. It's 110% natural and there's no artificial flavours.
