|linvillegorge||High protein diets are great for building muscle or shedding fat, but pretty awful for endurance. When I'm cutting weight (like now), I go on a high protein, low carb diet. It drains the shit out of you. You're essentially starving your body of the calories it needs. That's why you lose weight. The only way to lose weight is to create a calorie deficit. You have to burn more than you consume. It's not the rocket science that some people try to make it out to be.|

I have fast food breakfast sometimes before boarding, I don't think that slows me down. Although I prefer oatmeal, something that will give me a better long term energy level.
The biggest thing I find is stopping for a large lunch really slows you down, it takes energy to digest food, which is why you feel like sleeping after a large meal. Now take that to the hill and try to do a very demanding physical activity for another 4 hours! Read up on what triathletes do to keep their energy levels up for the day. They certainly don't grab a burger, fries and a beer at lunch!

Thanks for all the comments/advice. I appreciate it.
I believe what was killing my riding/ENERGY level was the ENERGY DRINK and the FAST FOOD breakfast. I would usually grab 2 sausage egg McMuffins and hash browns from McDonalds. Than go buy a Monster and Gatorade when I got to the resort.
In the beginning when I first started snowboarding...I could handle ALL DAY and get in as many runs as I can. After 2-3 seasons...I lost some of that energy. Either it was my diet...OR...I just got burned out from snowboarding in general. I think it was a combination of both and therefore I am looking to eat/drink a bit more healthier the next time I go up on the hill and hopefully will help boost my energy levels.
