Paige Spiranac opens up about her efficient diet on the course

Spiranac’s entire online persona is tangled up with golf, as San Diego State University alum also often posts tips and videos. Of course, she was a professional before this.

On the podcast, she revealed that she often had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, protein bars, protein shakes, and bananas, when she played full time.

To stay energized on the course, she made sure to eat every three holes. “I think when you’re playing 18 holes and you’re walking, especially in a competitive tournament, you really do need to keep your focus up,” she said. Spiranac added that when people do not eat or drink, it hinders them.

This is why she chose to have some trail mix, a banana, anything to kind of keep her blood pressure in line. “You don’t need to eat a ton. And I think a lot of people make this mistake where they play nine holes and then eat a ton and they’ll play the next nine they feel really lethargic.”

The key, according to Spiranac, is snacking. Small little bites should suffice, helping one keep focus.

What does Spiranac eat when she is not playing competitively?

When Spiranac is playing for fun, all she needs is a hot dog; It is her go-to option. What she does not like, however, is drinking on the course. She admitted that while people do seem to enjoy their beverages, she is not a fan of the same and might only sip a drink during charity events.
