Top 10 Eating Tips for Very Active People

10. Primarily anaerobic and/or vegetarian athletes may be more likely to benefit from creatine supplementation

9. Steer clear of packaged snacky foods; focus on fruits, veggies and lean protein for snacks

8.  Limit or avoid alcoholic beverages

7. To limit fat and excess weight gain, consistently sleep at least 7 hours each night

6. Loose weight and fat by timing the majority of high-GI carbohydrate before and after workouts; whole grains, fruits, and non-starchy veggies the rest of the time

5.  Gain lean weight by slowly increasing healthy high-fat snacks (e.g. nuts) and including a high protein snack before bed (cottage cheese w/ berries, lean meat, and low-fat cheese are all good choices)

4.  Plan effective high-carb, moderate protein and low-fat pre-game meals

3.  Minimize eating out and fast-food

2.  Drink water and other flavored low-calorie beverages early and often

1. EAT a low-fat, high-carbohydrate with protein (4:1 ratio) snack after weightlifting

Thanks all for reading; hopefully I can get back on the ball with posting regularly. I'm making my grad student blog this semester, so maybe I should lead by example ;-)
