8
Energy Needs of a Soccer Player
  • Foods fluids an immediate energy source and
    increased energy stores
  • Stored energy affects
  • Performance
  • Size physique
  • Function
  • Fuel available for exercise
  • Growth development
  • No simple formula to calculate energy need

9
Body Fat
  • Body fat should be within the players ideal
    range for their body type size

  • Human body prefers to use
  • carbohydrates for energy during
  • activity

11
Carbohydrates
  • Most important fuel source leading up to and
    during the day of training/competition
    (carb-loading)
  • 55-70 of total daily caloric intake
  • Needs to be replenished every day from foods and
    liquids in our diet

    allow for recovery
  • Ideal carbs come from foods and drinks with a
    moderate-high glycemic index (GI)

12
Choosing the Right Carbohydrates at the Right Time
  • 8 hours or less between sessions carbohydrate
    intake from solids or liquids must begin
    immediately after first session

  • A small source of fuel for exercise

15
Protein Needs
  • 10-15 of daily caloric intake
  • Adequate protein intake from a well-balance
    healthy diet
