“YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT” Keep that in mind the next time you feel you just have to have that extra Big Burger or piece of cake. What you eat each day is very important to your ability to race at a high level for a full moto. Following a healthy diet and developing an “EAT TO WIN LIFESTYLE” will also eliminate the need to watch your weight in future years. Once you hit 19, if you only gain 2 pounds a year you’ll be 60 lbs heavier at 49, say 180 to 240, it does creep up on you. A few things to remember. 1) Don’t binge eat! That is, don’t go for a day eating very little and then gourge yourself, especially in the evening. 2) Too much of anything is not good for you. Eat food from the 4 food groups (which we will outline) each day, do not eat the same thing every day. 3) Don’t miss breakfast. 4) Eat 3 meals a day (none to heavy) plus snacks. 5) Sleep 7 to 9 hours per day, every day. Don’t get by on 6 hours or less on a regular basis and don’t stay in bed any longer than 9 hours. The motocrossers diet consists mainly of complex carbohydrates. While it is important to eat foods from all food groups, complex carbohydrates should take up a minimum of 60% of the motocrossers diet. Protein a maximum of 25% and fat a maximum of 15%. So, if you want to do 70% carbs then you would eat 20% protein and 10% fat. That would be the maximum carbs and minimum protein and fat you should eat. Most riders need to change their “lifestyle” of eating, even if its gradual and a bit at a time. Sure you should eat a couple pieces of fruit a day, but one a day or even one every two days is better than none at all. Just keep trying to eat a little better each week and you will change your “eating lifestyle” for good. This is especially hard for young people who are generally “fussy” eaters. Change a little at a time, try some new things, and eventually you will “EAT TO WIN”.
