Fueling for Fitness

Have you ever wondered what the best foods are pre-workout or if you should even eat before working out?  Many people either eat the wrong foods or don’t eat before working out.  Maybe your worried about feeling bloated, you don’t want heavy foods to ruin your training, or you’re worried about feeling sick or slow paced during your workout.  But did you know if you ate a small light meal you are more likely to burn fat faster because your body has fuel in its system to function with which will also help you improve your workouts.

Here are some easy snacks I like to put together myself before I work out.

  • Sliced half of a banana on some Ezekiel bread with almond butter
  • Smoothies
  • Coconut yogurt with granola on top
  • Humus with fresh sliced fruits and veggies.

I hope this will give you some ideas for a pre-workout snack that you can enjoy next time you go to the gym!  If you try a snack before you go let me know in the comments below if you noticed an improvement in your workout.
