Re: Good nutrition ideas?
Hi, this is a great question and one that all drummers should think about seriously. I run my own Integrated Health Clinic and am also a semi professional Drummer, so drumming and health are my two biggest passions.
My advice to you in simple terms is you only get out what you put in, so 'crap in, crap out'!
1. Eat only organic foods
2. Reduce pro inflammatory foods, like gluten and possibly milk.
3. Reduce all, stimulant foods and drinks, like tea and coffee and those God awful energy drinks!
4. Hydration is a big key area for me. filtered or bottled water rather than tap water and add a small amount of Celtic Sea Salt to your water, just enough to taste.
There are some basic tips on good foods, but do what works for you and keep a diary of what you eat and you'll soon start to see patterns of foods that work and those that don't.
Drumming is a very physical job and so fueling the body for the job is paramount. Great question though, so good you made me join this forum!
