I’ve never been one to eat before a workout. In fact, I usually just have a few sips of coffee then head straight to the gym. Yes, I know this isn’t the best habit, but I didn’t know just how bad it was until I recently did some research. According to Livestrong, you can maximize your workout as well as your energy throughout the day if you eat the right foods pre sweat sesh. Making sure our bodies get enough nutrients before and after a workout actually helps to keep our immune systems functioning and our blood sugar levels more stabilized throughout the day. Basically, this means that if you’re like me and you tend to exercise on an empty stomach, you’re not fueling your body correctly.

  • If you workout in the morning…
    “You need to eat within 30 minutes of waking up so you can jump-start your metabolism.” Try having a few bites of oatmeal or half a banana—having something in your system is better than nothing.
  • If you workout in the afternoon…
    “Eat a light snack if you are hungry before your workout.” Jarett recommends power foods like a small bowl of oatmeal, a banana, apple slices with peanut butter or muscle milk.
  • After your workout…
    “Eat within 30 minutes after your workout so your body doesn’t start burning muscle.” It’s important to fuel your body with some form of protein, so grab a handful or almonds or whip up a protein shake. Then, eat small meals every 3 hours throughout. Even If you’re not hungry, you should at least have a small snack. This will prevent you from waiting too long to eat and then overeating because you feel starving.
