Diet

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Now i dont suppose that there is a specific diet for golf, but just generally looking for someone with more knowledge than me. Im 23 and have started to put weight on as i never seem to feel full. is there any foods that are good for you but also fill you up at the same time? where shoukd i focus?

Your best bet is to learn about the types of fuel the body can use and how it does so. That will let you decide on what would be your preferred diet (i.e. there's no point in me saying "just eat meat, veg and some fruit and nuts. Nothing processed like potatoes or grains" if you know that carbs are ideal for your lifestyle).

Keep a food diary for a few weeks and write down everything (everything!) you consume over that time and you also might notice a pattern emerging too.

Yeah a diary might be a good idea! i do snack more than i should because i never feel satisfied. Need to sort it out because im rejoining the Navy this year and training to get onto the golf team too

It takes some individual observation to figure what's right for YOU.  I can find a study out there to support any diet one cares to name.  the key is finding things that make you feel full and are nutrient dense. 

 

I'm of Eastern European descent and thrive on meats, pickled/bulky veg, modest fruits, and almost no sweet or starch.  You may be quite different - it takes less than a month to figure it out.  Let me know if you need help.
