The foods you eat affect your body and ultimately affect your performance in golf. That’s why many golfers are trading in their sugary sports drinks for coconut water and switching from dairy milk to the less inflammatory almond milk. They are realizing that if they want to increase the functionality of their muscles they are going to have to move to a more alkaline diet which will reduce their inflammation.

Fried food doesn’t taste as good as a “birdie.” Reducing acidic foods is just par for the course if you want to stay in the game. Dark green vegetables, cutting back on alcohol, sugar, and processed grains will get you well on the way to a more optimized game and performance.
