What To Eat
Just wondering if anyone can help. Im getting ready to start probie school and know that most of the pt is done in the morning, with other physical things during the rest of the day. I live in south florida where its easily in the 90's everyday. Anyway I was just wondering whats the best thing to eat and drink(before and during) throughout the day. The days are monday thru friday from 7 am to 6 pm. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have this article I wrote a while back
But you'll need alot of water.
I am not a big electrolyte drink (gaterade) replacement person. I think they are hypertonic. But- if you mixed then 1/2 and 1/2 with water, that'd be ok.
I'd count on drinking at least 1 gallon of water or that mixture per day. Take a multi vitamin. And if you feel the food is not enough- add more fresh raw fruits and vegetables. They will keep your body a less acidic environment than meats or cooked produce. After all- lactic acid is a by product of exercise, right? Buffer all that exercise with some more basic foods.
Here's the article. Scroll down until you see Firefighter Nutrition...
Let me know if you have questions...
