Now that you are going to eat before a workout; what should you eat...Carbs! Carbohydrates are easy for our bodies to digest and are ideal for giving us that extra energy boost that we'll need for a great workout. Try to eat 1-2 hours before your workout, so that you are not working out on a too full or empty stomach. Your pre-workout snack should be around 100-200 calories.
Here are some of my favorite options:
fruit: apple, banana, grapes, pear
whole wheat toast with almond butter
half of a protein bar
rice cake with peanut butter
This is the one time where I encourage people to eat Complex Carbs with 3 grams of fiber or more, so take advantage of it and enjoy a delicious snack, before you burn it off.
PLF Daily Tip: Eat 1-2 hours before working out always. You will feel energized and it will allow you to focus on kicking your butt. :)
