SPORTS MEDICINE What to eat before athletic competition F LORAL. SDMI' ILK I 1.0WI.HS • Wf- ARAHI I AMI • CRAf IS • FRAMLS • CUS 1 C) DR. PAUL DONOHUE North America Syndicate Dear Dr. Donohue: What is best to eat before competition, and when is the best time to eat? I get --such conflicting advice on this that .-'I'm in a complete fog. Will you kindly clear the air for me? —H.H. Dear H.H.: Before competition, eat foods that en- hajice energy but riot ones that remain in your _ stomach and slosh r^round while you ••'•are competing. •"£ The best time to $ X-i'eat is two to three 'ft hours before competition. It takes n- fpod four hours to leave the stom- ^MJjjh. Your stomach doesn't have to "ibe." completely empty, so two to three hours is a good compromise. ; , * ~The kinds of food best eaten are •those that release their sugar con'•- tent slowly. A surge of sugar into I ,,*Kpur blood won't last you through " -v-^our entire competition. Further; :p'tofore, chowing down sugary foods ; -"'.would cause a release of insulin, • v-aiid that would lower your blood '. sugar too fast to keep you going. ! f .-;If your .competition is in the ; Corning, a breakfast of cereals, ; >milk, yogurt without sugar, or• ange juice and a wheat or rye - bagel would work for you. ; "If you're competing in the after; noon, a good lunch would be toma- ; to" or pea soup; apples, grapes or » , bananas; cottage cheese; peanuts; ' ; and oatmeal cookies. You can put ", ' peanut butter on apple slices as a i • dessert. • ; .Don't forget fluids. Drink at ^ ; least two cups with your meal, and * ; another cup shortly before : ; jjrpur competition. If you are a run: ' ,iier, drink liberally during the ; ;rwi. And if the competition lasts " ; for more than an hour, get your- ; self a commercial sports drink, one containing between 4 percent and 10 percent carbohydrates. Creatine is getting increased attention as a pre-event boost. Some nutrition experts suggest taking 20 to 25 grams of it with your pre- event meal. Creatine restores energy to exercising muscles. You can find it in health-food stores. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have sprained a ligament. My doc suggests that I come in for ultrasound treatments. I suspect they are nothing more than a gimmick. What's the word on this treatment? — I.I. Dear I.I.: Ultrasound can speed the healing process. It delivers heat up to three inches deep to injured tissues. That's a depth no ointment applied to the skin can reach. Heat prods fibroblast cells to swing into full production. Fibroblasts make strands of tissue that help heal sprains. Ultrasound is not limited to treating ligament injuries. It also is used for muscle strains and muscle bruises. Have a go at it. You probably will be pleasantly surprised. Dear Dr. Donohue: This is one that will catch you off guard. Ever heard of eating red hot peppers to increase your endurance? — J.J. Dear J.J.: I have seen articles that claim hot, red peppers speed the breakdown of muscle sugar, releasing it more quickly for energy production. If you'd like to experiment, be my guest, and please let me know the results.
