Hello, My husband plays goalie for an over 40 yrs. hockey team. What is the best pre-game meal and how many hours before the game can he eat? The games are usually after 8:00 PM.

There are several of Robb Wolf's podcasts that deal directly with this question.

I cannot remember the episode, so you might have to do a little digging.

My 14 year old son plays elite level hockey and is a goaltender as well. I'd say that any paleo meal would be ok especially since he plays after 8 pm. Assuming his last meal of the day is around 6, that gives his body time to at least start to digest. My son eats sweet potato, regular potato, and white rice for extra carbs. Eating these on a regular basis provides the carbs he needs for on ice play as well as dry-land training. He is on the ice 5 days a week. He's a lean, mean goaltending machine!! :)

I am a goalkeeper too! What does he eat on a daily basis? Can he shift his eating patterns to suit? Otherwise, I agree, a banana or half a banana is a good shout. Also maybe some macademia nuts?

if you need to eat before a game but do not want an upset tummy or struggle with diggestion try mix egg powder with apple sausce. Mix in a banana or whatever else. lasting energy, easy to diggest...
