    Ive always like the Sensu bean for recovery works wonders.

    Best thing to do is read, read, and read some more. Mostly everything you can wonder is in the FAQ somewhere, I suggest reading it.

    And what works for one person, diet wise, may not work for you.

    I have no idea whether he takes in fat or not. Ask him, not us.

    As far as what you presumably meant to ask - whether fat intake immediately before a match (presumably lasting on the order of a few minutes) will give you energy...

    Shortest answer: no.
    Short answer: The match will be over long before the fat has finished being digested.
    Long answer: Read this book.

    Shortest answer: For optimum health, get enough of all of them.
    Short answer: To the best of my knowledge, cure-alls don't exist. If you find out about one, though, let me know.

    I also eat a granola bar about 40 minutes before I know Im going to work out.

    Energy drinks will burn you out, anything with High Fructose Corn syrup will burn you out.

    So I go with good old water and eat 90 mins before I train and the granola bar, has worked for me

    Stimulants, fast carbs, smelling salts, a brisk slap to the face...

    The main thing to remember is that you need to be taking good care of yourself in the period leading up to the event. If you eat like Hell and don't get much sleep the day before, you won't be at peak performance no matter what you do on the day of.

    Another (related) thing to remember is that if the "event" in question is more than one match (or one long match), you need to sustain your energy level during the event. In other words, bring snacks (perhaps in liquid form, if the breaks between matches are short).

    Hope that helped.

    I personally like a good cup of coffee, about an hour or so before training

    Try natural fruit sugar. A large apple is the best source about 1/2 hour prior. However, as H TO THE IZZO said...you really have to be taking care of yourself all the time.

    After a match (I know you didn't ask, just a preemptive strike) since you will be feeling run down, try about 50g of Complex (fast) carbs to boost your insulin levels back up to normal WITHOUT spiking them and causing a crash later.

    Unless you need to weigh-in right before the comp.
