Nutrition tips for the bands playing their hearts out one town to the next!

Out of Cally and Back in TX

I have been spending my time behind library walls and under piles of research articles. Some interesting finds and plenty of questions unanswered yet by research. There are a lot of myths out there regarding nutrition and musicians. Do you have a food or drink that you stay clear of before you perform? I’ll let you know the ones that really don’t hinder performance and those that really do hinder vocal or stage performance. You might be surprised.

Something to chew on…

How hydrated are you? Just like an athlete you need to drink plenty of water all day before you hit the stage, and try your best to take plenty of “swigs” during the show. Key time to hydrate is right when you get off stage! Best to replenish than to have the residual feeling of dehydration in the morning.

Drink:

  • 1-2 glasses of water every hour prior to performing
  • at least 1 cup of water during your show (if you can manage to drink more that’s great!)
  • 2-4 glasses before you head to bed
  • wake up and starting drinking again (not the fermented kind!)

Now it’s my turn to enjoy being home and relax a bit from my studies.  I’m around and will try to get back up and running soon, but for now I need a mental break!

Stay healthy~
