I tried to play pool this week eating prior and during match play. I believe for me eating a small meal prior and snacking during play works for me best. May explain my pot belly

“Carryover” food only, preferably with some sugar content. Brain runs on glucose, ya know.
Coke and ice to drink. If I am in a tournament small items throughout the night as opposed to meals.

Snacks mostly in tournament as well as marathon gambling. Seems IMO it makes me sluggish and not as sharp when my belly is full

I have to eat before I play and for sure have energy bars / snacks / smoothies and other things at my disposal so i can consume if and when I start to feel bad from going too long without eating. When I was younger not so much but now, absolutely!

Becoming very aware of your blood sugar level when it drops is critical for peak performance.

My problem is I eat too much all the time. But seriously back when I used to play long sessions, I ate very little. The old Mexican players and I mean the top players of that time 60s-70's used to eat small portions of honey. I mean they'ed have small packages of honey and eat maybe a half ounce or so every hour and drink lots of water during extended matches. They felt that the honey took a little longer to digest and stayed in their system longer, was not filling and could regulate the calories and energy required for long sets.
