Eating Guidelines for Bowling

Bowling is just like any other sport. To maximize your performance you must be in top condition, and a good diet is an important aspect of this.

The major nutritional crisis for most bowlers is extra body weight. Excess body fat is only a hindrance. Not only does it add extra stress to the muscles and bones of the body as you bowl, the stress on your heart is potentially life threatening.

Excess body fat also can hinder your bowling technique, making it more difficult to produce correct technique, and the fatigue from carrying the extra weight can reduce your training time and add distractions to your game. As you can see, it is advantageous in many ways to lose weight.

The best nutritional advice I can give is to eat a healthy, well balanced diet. I am sure most people are aware of what is a healthy diet and what is not. As bowlers, the challenge is to find the healthy food at the bowling centers. Often you don't have the healthy choice from the snack bar, and subsequently many bowlers are overweight. The answer is in the planning. Prepare food at home, and take it with you when you go bowling.
