You might know it already, but a PRE-workout meal plays a key role in the effectiveness of your workout. If you want to get the most out of your workout, then you should eat the right foods before. But what are the right foods? Help is here sweet girls, because today I will give you a list of what you should consume!
Unfortunately most people think you should skip the calories and eat less to get fit, however the food you eat before you work out will fuel your training and maximize your efforts and the results. You will never achieve that bikini body without eating properly. So do you want to lose fat, build muscle, increase strength, improve performance, lose weight and live healthy? Read now how nutrition will help you go get it!
What to do?
A PRE-workout meal should contain the right total amount and balance of calories, protein, carbs and fat. Try to eat it 45-60 min before you hit the gym and make sure you consume a significant amount of both carbs (for a quick fuel boost) and protein (to initiate muscle recovery).
Pick one ingredient out of each category;
1. Fruit: banana is the best sportfruit!
2. Carbs: you can choose oatmeal, brown rice, brown bread, whole wheat pancake or bagel, sweet potatoes, quinoa and whole wheat pasta.
3. Protein: eggs, chicken, fish, fat-free quark or Whey.
4. Fat: peanut butter, nuts, cook your fish/chicken/eggs in olive oil or eat some avocado.
For example: I prefer to eat oatmeal (carbs) with a banana (fruit), walnuts (fat) and 1 Whey protein shake (protein).
