Do you have recommendations for eating for athletic performance?
I am a competitive archer who suffers from hypoglycemia. I actually collapse fairly regularly during tournaments--the strength drains out of my legs. I am under a doctor's care but not a dietitian or nutritionist. I am currently using a Nutribullet for one to two meals a day: morning, and evening post workout (the later with protein powder). What I am looking for is information on how to eat prior to a workout, what foods, and how far before; how to eat leading up to a competition, which are both strenuous and stressful; finally, how to eat during the competition to keep my blood sugar on an even keel.
My fitness level is very sensitive to what I eat and when. Often, I will suffer a short period of weakness after eating. Lately, I have been on a low calorie diet and losing quite a bit of weight. I have been having some dizziness during workouts. I am trying to eat a bit more carbs prior to workouts to help eliminate the issue.
