The Meal Plan Site has loads of meal plans (and more coming!) to help you achieve your fitness goals. There are both plans for those who enjoy polo on a recreational level and those who compete at the professional level. 

Here’s a meal plan sample for a typical match day:

Breakfast, 7:30 am

  • Large bowl of porridge made with jumbo oats + 200ml skimmed milk + water with a tsp of sugar and raisins if desired or 75g unsweetened muesli + 250ml skimmed milk
  • 250ml fresh fruit juice
  • Tea/coffee


  • 4-5 oatcakes  or rye crispbread with low-fat soft cheese
  • Fruit
  • Drink

Lunch, 12:00 pm

  • 100g chicken breast or 120g fish
  • 70g brown basmati rice or 70g wholewheat pasta
  • Medium serving of vegetables/salad
  • Drink water

15 minutes before playing

  • 2 oatcakes + natural peanut butter
  • 100ml isotonic drink with 20g additional maltodextrin

During breaks

  • Oatcakes
  • 100ml isotonic drink with 20g additional dextrose
  • Sip water

Immediately, post-match

  • 25g whey protein powder + 25g maltodextrin in water
