Game day food is absolutely essential to a great performance. Making sure you are getting all the usual macronutrients are important as well as adding some fat and carbs catered to your energy output. Huh?? In other words, your body will need more fat and carbs to get the job done than on a regular trsining day; for example sweet potatoes and avocado (two of my personal favorites).
