Table Tennis Breakfast

Discover Samson's Favorite Training/Tournament Food

From Asia to Africa to Europe and even to the USA, there are thousands of professional table tennis athletes who are aspiring to be the next World Champion. One of the key elements to reaching the top is consistent training six hours per day. Most top players wake up, eat breakfast, train three hours, eat lunch, rest, then train three more hours in the late afternoon. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day to fuel an intense early morning session.
Here is the secret recipe for my power-packed breakfast.
For one serving:
1 cup of uncooked rolled oats (Uncooked oatmeal is the key)
¼ cup of sliced almonds
¼ cup of raisins
1 cup of milk
Mix them all together in a bowl. Preparation time is one minute.

Every morning, I eat two servings of The Table Tennis Breakfast, and it gives me the right balance of healthy carbs and protein to fuel my workout.
Before I discovered The Table Tennis Breakfast, I used to eat three bowls of cereal or prepackaged oatmeal, two pieces of fruit, and two bagels. This breakfast would give me energy for approximately two hours. Cooked, pre-packaged oatmeal only offers about 1/3 cup of oats but expands when it is heated. It appears to fill the bowl, but is digested in less than half the time. Additionally, prepackaged oatmeal is loaded with unnecessary sugars and preservatives.
I challenge you to try it for one week – The Table Tennis Breakfast! You will feel energized and will avoid morning cravings for at least four hours. This breakfast is the key for anyone aspiring to move to the next level.
