complex carbohydrates like wholegrain bread. Yoghurt is great, it has a really low glycemic index so it releases energy slowly. For more energy faster, fruit is great.

Answer #5

Energy drinks do not hydrate the body and often lead to dehydration. An increased level of caffeine in the body from energy drinks can lead to stomach problems, panic attacks, anxiety, and cardiac arrhythmias. Caffeine is also known to mask the symptoms of fatigue. When symptoms of fatigue are not apparent, the body is already overworked while the person is continuing to do activity, which puts further strain on the heart.

I just read yesterday that beef jerky is a good idea. It’s packed with proteins, and now some producers are adding in vitamins and things to help athletes.
