    Whats going on homeys? Is that how you say it in America, homeys?...Just kidding I'm american.
    Anyhow, I have basketball season coming up this friday and we will play every friday. I want to know a good meal to eat prior to the game for each game I have this season. We have 4 10 min quarters and I usually play the whole game with no subsitution so I will need something to give me energy and keep up with the pace I output in, which is fast paced. I would also like to incorperate some rest for the game because I will be waking up at 5 a.m. for work and getting off at noon. Then the game starts around 7 p.m.
    Any help would be appreciated and I thank you in advance.

    I would go with some complex carbs (like oatmeal) before for energy, but I eat 2 hours before.

    I'd eat low-gly carbs. Most fruits are great. Most boiled pastas. Most beans (although they also have fat, so you should never eat too many). I think Oatmeal has a fairly high glycemic load, although raw oats are low.

    Eat 2-4 hours before your game, don't kill the meal. Start sipping on gatorade about 1/2 before gametime or warm-ups.

    I have lots of oatmeal so i'll use some of that. I think I will go with 1 bowl of oatmeal. A bottle of water to wash it down. Then get a banana and an orange. I'll do this 2 hours before tip off. I'll also steal some gatorade from the local store. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Eat thnigs that you know doesn't make you feel bloated and sluggish. Stay away from steaks and huge portions of pasta. Keep the meal on the lighter side. Be sure to stay away from the soda/candy before you go out and play. When I played I would eat chicken with rice/pasta before every game and that seemed to work out for me. I need to have something in my stomach before I play so I would eat two hours before then eat a small sandwhich about half an hour before warm-ups would start.

    Good luck

    I had to do service work at a PAL club one time, here in Oregon.

    Umm....you play 40 mins with no subs? How old are you?

    I'm not too bad at basketball though I haven't played since last season, I need to get back into it.
