Coach, I try to keep it very simple with my kids. I am not going to sit there and read off percentages of fats, carbs, and protein from our health books. I talk to them about protein intake and specifically the timing of it in accordance with their workouts. I talk to them about the importance of breakfast, complex carbohydrate intake for energy,eating/ drinking for recovery, and just making better choices when eating, especially when they eat out. I posted on my teachers blog the best choices at popular fast food sites. I talk to them about going and eating at places that cook their food in peanut oil such as Chick fila and Five Guys. You always hear kids say, i eat all of the time and still cant gain weight. Horse crap. To gain weight, you take in more calories than you burn, its that simple. Most of those kids eat maybe one or two big meals a day and dont eat breakfast,. They have to eat breakfast and need to add a meal somewhere in their day. They can also have something right before they go to bed. I am not a proponent of telling kids to eat anything and everything, but basically, that is what they need to do. I think if you keep it simple for them, you will have better results. If they are serious about their training, they will make some changes to help themselves reach their goals.
