Could you advise me on fasting during Ramadan and football practice?
Hi, my son is 15yo and plays football. This is Ramadan for us so he is fasting. We also live in Georgia so it is very hot right now. Right now i give him a casein shake in the morning but he won't eat any food because he says he gets a stomachache. After the fast i give him a smoothie made with fruit and Spiru-tein Sport powder by Nature's Plus. It provides 40% of energy from carbs, 30% from amino acid rich protein and 30% from fat. It says it only has 20g of protein per serving. Does he need more than that? Also what are some examples of some good meals for after the fast? Should i get him up in the middle of the night to drink a shake? Also what else can he drink besides water that will rehydrate him? I heard coconut water is good but he doen't like it. Thanks for any info.
