Pre-training preperation

Hey fellas, I train in Muay Thai in Ottawa and I have some questions about what to eat, when do drink water, usefulness of energy drinks, etc.

I usually don't have a whole lot of time, I arrive at 4pm, out the door at 5:15PM, training for 45 min periods in an intense, round divided period. I train 1-3 periods a night. I'm just inquiring about what would the ideal food and water consumption be to ensure that I have maximum energy, no bowel movements during the training, and an overall sense of well-being.

Also tricks on water consumption and energy drinks and anything else for that matter will be greatly accepted.

cheers

ok first energy drinks might help your performance but you dont want to depend on them and plus they deplete the water in your body . Muay Thai burns alot of juice so you want to eat alot of energy food like veggies and fruits some red meat and alot of fish and chicken as it has heathy fat content like nuts..that's just my opinion , maybe i'm wrong but it seems to work for me ..as far as water you can never have enough..

@ fairtex i use every 30 second breather break to take a few small sips of water. usually when i drink too much at once and get back to work, i'll start getting cramps, so i try not to drink too much.
i've asked people on this forum what i should be eating. most have just said to eat a bunch of white meat, fish, and other healthy foods with lots of protein. supposedly you shouldn't have red meat as often, so yeah. go for chickenn.

I've heard from trainers to only drink water before and during training and Gatorade afterwards. You can never go wrong with Skinless Chicken Breast, Fish such as Salmon(not fried catfish haha), Boiled Eggs, Fruit and Vegetables.

look at shaklee products and gatorade does hurt because it has
too many simple sugars and flushes every thing out if used to
many times in a day.

i heard an opinion that energy drinks are not good for you at all. maybe once in a while it wont do harm, drinking it often is bad.

Energy drinks are bad though if used over a long period of time. They cause heart problems. The ones that do that are Red Bull, Monster, and such. I drink RIP IT. You can get it sugar free and its loaded with B6 and B12. Plus, it doesn't make me all shaky after i drink it.
