How to Eat During Taper Time

By Tasija Karosas, Swimming World College Intern

We can see the light at the end of tunnel as taper approaches. During the short course championship season, sweat and tears clear the chlorine-filled air and are replaced by good moods and underwater selfies. All those weeks of grueling lactate sets, early morning practices, and backbreaking kick sets are about to come to an end. But as training changes in the pool and the weight room so must your eating habits!

It is common for athletes to have a difficult time figuring out how to fuel during taper. Even though practices are shorter and less intense, your metabolism may not let up. You may be eating as if you were still in peak training season. The main goal for taper is weight maintenance, which requires a change in eating habits.  Included below are a few basic guidelines for fueling while tapering that can help impact your end of the season meet.
