Did you know that eating something before a work-out could help improve your overall energy, performance and weight loss? It’s true! Food is your bodies fuel, but the right type of fuel is also important.
But what is the “perfect” food to eat pre-work out? The answer is carbohydrates, which are found in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and dairy. Carbohydrates are your bodies first source of fuel. They are broken down in your body into glucose to provide energy to your muscles. Without this source of energy your body breaks down glycogen stores in your muscle then eventually protein in your muscle for energy. Physically your body may feel tired and weak leading to overall decreased physical performance. So my advice is to eat something to preserve those muscles and fuel your workout! I typically recommend eating 10-30 minutes prior to working out. This will give your body sometime to digest….
