“PFF Rule”™ – Fueling Your Body
Whatever your sport, whether in-training or off-season, every athlete requires three things at every meal/snack: Protein, Fat, & Fiber. Protein and fat are fuels that the body requires to function properly, while fiber is important to help maintain proper blood-glucose levels. Obviously, the amount of fuel needed will vary during training compared to off-season, but the type of fuel remains the same. If your meal does not contain these needed fuels, your body will not feel satiated (or ‘satisfied’) and thus you will still have feelings of hunger. Protein examples: meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds, beans, legumes, lentils. Fat examples: meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, avocados. Fiber examples: vegetables, fruit, oatmeal, beans, legumes, lentils
- PFF™ Breakfast Example: oatmeal with almonds and ½ cup blueberries
- PFF™ Lunch/Supper Example: Baked fish with a salad and steamed broccoli
