What Do You Eat and Drink as a Gamer?

Proper nutrition plays an important role for gamers who want to achieve high levels of performance. Concentration, reaction speed and endurance are also largely determined by what we eat.

Sugar is bad

Consuming too much sugar and gaming is bad, this creates an enormous fluctuation in the ability to concentrate and in one’s own emotional state. That means you get excited faster and the risk of tilting increases.

Mainly when we gamble, we take in the sugar through the familiar sweet drinks such as Energy drinks, cola drinks also juices or juice spritzers. But the best drink for a longer gaming session to stay focused is actually normal mineral water.

What if we eat much sugar?
The blood sugar level rises sharply for a short time, which gives us a certain feeling of elation. We feel very good and productive for a moment. But after a very short time, this effect is reversed. Because the body begins to produce a lot of insulin due to the high sugar intake, which massively lowers the blood sugar level again after about 30-40 minutes. Far below the normal level.

Avoid overeating
A heavy meal would mean, food that is difficult to digest in large quantities reduces the ability to concentrate enormously. Because the body first has to put a lot of energy into digesting food. This means that the stomach and intestines are supplied with more blood and work under high load. This means that all other body functions have less “energy” available. In particular, the brain, which is dependent on good blood circulation and oxygen supply, then goes into standby mode when we “eat ourselves up”.

So what should you eat?

breakfast
The ideal breakfast for concentration in the morning is oatmeal. For better taste and a little extra energy, best mixed in with a chopped banana. Those who do not tolerate dairy products very well can replace them with soy milk or soy yoghurt. This food is filling for several hours, is not heavy in the stomach and provides you with the energy you need to concentrate well until noon.

Lunch
Pasta with a sauce that is not too greasy is the ideal source of energy until the evening. Tomato sauce is particularly suitable for this. You should do without the super thickly sprinkled parmesan, but there is nothing wrong with a pinch. An Asian noodle dish is also recommended if you like the taste.

 

Dinner
Now all meat lovers can look forward to it. For the evening, chicken and fish are ideal as low-fat and protein-rich meats! The chicken in the form of half a chicken is also okay, but without the skin. Vegetables that are low in carbohydrates are recommended as a side dish. Broccoli in particular is considered a SUPER vegetable that can be found on many menus for professional athletes. If you don’t like broccoli, you can alternatively switch to cauliflower or spinach.

 

Dietary supplement / energy booster

In addition to a balanced, healthy normal diet, there are also various preparations on the market that can be used temporarily as a supplement or substitute. It is particularly important to only consume these products temporarily and at most in the quantities used by the manufacturer. Pregnant women and children should generally refrain from using such substances.
