Powerful Protein

PROTEIN=POWER

Protein helps build, maintain and repair muscle. Eating more protein than the body can use will not build larger, stronger muscles.
• It’s best to have several small meals a day that are high in carbs with added protein.
• Don’t eat protein within a couple hours prior to practice, but follow practice with a carb + protein snack.
• Choose lean meats and low-fat, non-greasy choices.

Research shows that most athletes are already consuming more protein than their body can use (US Anti-doping Agency)
