In the morning before going to school I have a nutritious but light breakfast, with cereals and milk. After a fruity snack at mid morning, I eat again at lunch after school at the around 1 pm. I usually have a carbohydrate and protein-rich lunch, which is essential for the correct functioning of the organism especially in view of the studying and the sport activity I usually make in the afternoon. After lunch I rest a bit, which I know is not properly indicated after a meal because then you are not burning energy but storing it as fat. Yet, my rest usually last only about an hour before I do my homework. If I’m training with my team I usually have another sneak at about 4:30 pm with a sandwich or an ice-cream, otherwise if I’m hungry I just have a piece of fruit. Usually dinner is at about 8:30 pm, or whenever I come back from the gym, and it consists of only one main course, generally meat or fish and veggies. Often in the weekends, and especially after a match, we go have a pizza all together.
I don’t follow a diet as I believe I don’t need one. I’m not skinny but not even fat. I’m just right for my height and considering that I’m burning a lot of calories between studying and training every day I believe it’s important that I eat correctly as many as five times a day, or I wouldn’t have the energy to do all the things I want to do.
