EAT TO WIN
Slater has his game-day eating down to a fine art. “My diet during the week is all about consuming wholefoods, and I don’t think too much about quantities,” Slater says. “But on game day I focus on keeping myself feeling light”
Two eggs, bacon, avocado
A banana. “This is a great snack for providing energy without making you feel heavy.”
A salad sandwich on wholemeal bread. You’ll digest this quicker than you would a meat-based meal.
“Whether it’s a late-afternoon or an evening game, by now I’m focused on it. Perhaps just another banana to top up my energy reserves without risking running out on the field feeling like I have a full stomach.”
