There is always the consideration that food is not all you need to have energy. I am much fitter this season and find I have far more energy generally. I certainly bat better when I am fit.

I used to try sorts.

Eat pasta heavy meals Friday night.
Big breakfast and dinner before game.
Energy drinks
Taking food with me.
Switching to high protein foods to keep levels high.

Nothing really mattered.


About 18 months ago I started at the gym, go 6 times a week, an hour of weights and 20mins on treadmill or stepper after.


I just eat breakfast and dinner as normal before I game, ensure Im hydrated, and I rarely run out of energy during the game anymore.

Itd be hard to play all days without food, but being fitter does help



As for tea, Im an opening batsman, but I love a good cricket tea, I eat as much as I want, including buns, and its never had an effect on me in the second innings.

True dat.

I have become very unfit and I hate running because it is high impact. I have to lose weight. Period. My fear is that I might lose muscle mass when I start "cutting".

You wont lose muscle if you are training weights and keeping protein intake up.

Its more about diet! Eat healthy while increasing exercise and you will lose fat not weight!

I am done with the season so now I can focus on my stomach. I have included cardio before and after my lifting and also changed up my diet. Ever tried intermittent fasting? Day 2! I am craving sweets/carbs like a motherf*****!
