So a few weeks ago in my football practice…I was lagging behind and not doing so well for some reason whether it was the weather…or me just having a bad day. I sat down for a while cause i wasn’t feeling good and my trainer walked over and asked me what i had eaten that day. I said … i had a homemade chicken (extra chicken) bbq sandwhich with cheese. He said the reason i was feeling so sluggish and shitty was cause i ate to much protein before the practice. Is this true?? Can protein effect the way I practice??
I’m now weight training and playing basketball also. I realize that if i wanna gain i have to eat more calories then i put out. But if this protein statement is true (what my trainer told me), then how could I eat more if i pretty much am working out 10x a week 2x Mon-Fri. I have basketball practice from 3:15 to 5:15. Then i go from their to the gym and on tuesdays and thursdays i speed train with my trainer.
So is what my trainer at my school saying true? or false? Cause i was under the impression that i should be eating HUGE amounts of proteins and carbs every 2 hours.
