What should I eat before a PT test?

Company Command: The Bottom Line - Army Leadership Guide

Eat an MRE or a cheese pizza the night before a PT test. The morning of, eat half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich about an hour or so before the test. This loads your body with energy! Another good food to eat is a banana. NOTE: NEVER eat a candy bar before taking a PT test. By the time you get to your run, it will rob your body of energy.
