I was playing once and afterwards, a little boy approached me and stated that he played the trumpet. I asked, "Do you play like I do?" and he replied, "I used to."
So I always hear on this site by the biggies that if your breathing correctly and if your not using too much pressure it takes little effort to play the trumpet. If this is the case you should be able to eat a good meal and your energy will go towards digesting your food in that you donít need as much energy since your playing correctly ?? So which is it ? Just kidding here, I donít like to eat before I play eitherÖ..
I am a fan of the old adage: "Eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for lunch, and a pauper for dinner". Granola with fruit and yogurt and some green tea for breakfast, lads, that will do it. And, invest in a water-pik and use it faitfully before practicing. That will lengthen the life of your horn.
