Which food during tournament???
I will play a tournament from friday til sunday.
Which food would you recommend me, to take with?
Accomodation is including breakfast and at evening, we will go out in a pub or restaurant... so I only need ideal food in the meantime.

Until your last match is over, avoid anything that dehydrates
This means no beer parties or nights-out with alcohol.
Avoid overcooked, freeze-dried or dehydrated food.
Also avoid sour food or anything that make you belch.
Stay away from salty food including preserves and pickles.
Also, avoid drugs and stimulants, especially amphetamines.
When travelling to a distant tournament, get there a few days early.
That helps to acclimatise yourself to the local environment.
It also allows you to get over the dehydration caused by long exposure to the dry pressurised air inside a high-flying airliner.
Of course, avoid unfamiliar or exotic food during the tournament.
If not, you will end up with LCWB (Lee Chong Wei Belly)
Diarrhoea and vomiting, if unchecked, lead to serious dehydration.

i have had some trial and error experiences with food on badminton days in the past. but heres what i found which works best for me.
breakfast: avoid anything fatty, meats in general, good example is the bacon sausage. have oat porrages with fruits & nuts which contains loads of carbonhydrate fibre which releases energy slowly in your body,
for very long sessions i would recommend a bannana + lightly filled sandwich (brown bread), eat it in small chunks + Slowly so you will go easy on your stomach.
after the game i would wolf on high protein + iron food like fish, chicken to replenish and regenerate muscle tissues.

during day-long match days:
isotonic drinks: replenish the minerals lost in perspiration/sweat
bananas: minerals & energy
jaffa cakes: quick source of energy
