Don’t be fooled by silly myths some volleyball players believe. They think they don’t need to worry about the kinds of snacks they eat because they are working out and burning so many calories playing. On the contrary, athletes need more calories from healthier sources to do their best.

Some great choices include hummus with vegetables, greek yogurt with fruit, and nut butters. These options each include a protein with good fat and a healthy carb for optimum energy, unlike sugary snacks that will spike your insulin levels and cause you to crash before the end of the tournament. So, serve yourself up something that will give you the right kind of calories to keep you going.
