When talking about nutrition for bowling, some people think that it doesn’t matter very much and they will grab soda and a slice of pizza and be done with it. Some very good bowlers will do the same, but why pass by this part of bowling tactics when it can give you an advantage and help you bowl better?
Eating and drinking for bowling endurance
Bowling nutrition matters more in a competitive tournament that is longer in format. Two parts of nutrition stand out when thinking about how to take advantage of this part of your bowling game. Eating the right foods for energy and getting enough water or fluids to stay hydrated which also keeps your energy up.
Hydration is the first thing to impact your energy level and endurance if it drops below an optimum level. You can easily prevent this simply by drinking enough water before and during bowling.
Eating for energy and endurance typically means getting enough carbohydrates into your system and keeping enough in your system while bowling so you don’t become exhausted. High carbohydrate foods are easy to find so you just need to pick the ones you like. Some bowlers that take advantage this tactic will eat energy bars, eat bananas or other carbohydrate rich foods during a longer competition.
Nutrition can be an very important bowling tactic because your bowling performance and ability to repeat shots will degrade as you bowl more and more games without the right nutrition.
