It’s probably the question I get most often– what should I eat before and after a workout?
I love that people are asking this because it means they understand the importance of fuelling for a workout. Think of your body as a car. Your muscles are the engine and the food you eat is the fuel. In the same way that you would fill up on gas before a long road trip, you need to give your body the fuel it requires before a workout.
WHAT TO EAT BEFORE A WORKOUT?
Does this sound familiar? You’re on your way to workout, but your stomach is rumbling. You think that putting any food in your stomach will make you feel sick during your workout.
You’ve heard that you need carbs before a workout. But you think to yourself, “If I eat too many carbs before my workout, won’t I just be eating back the calories I want to burn?” Choosing a pre-workout food is confusing!
