For an athlete, breakfast plays an important role in performance. It is the foundation for an athlete’s daily nutrition.
When an athlete wakes up in the morning, his or her glycogen levels are at 40 to 60 percent. This is not enough to maintain blood sugar levels and keep high energy until lunchtime, especially if there is a workout or game in the morning.
How can athletes perform their best if their bodys are only at 40 percent glycogen?
Skipping breakfast misses the opportunity to replenish glycogen levels to 100 percent and last until lunch.
