Fitness: What to eat Before & After

Image

  • 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 is your system is better than nothing.
  • If you workout in the afternoon…
    Eat a light snack if you are hungry before your workout. Suggestion: power foods like a banana, apple slices with peanut butter.
  • After your workout…
    Eat within 30 minutes after your workout so your body doesn’t start burning muscle, so grab a handful or almonds or whip up a protein shake. Even If you’re not hungry, you should at least have a small snack.
  • *REMEMBER to hydrate throughout the day to replace all the H20 you lost while sweating it out.

No matter how you look at it, you should be eating and working out to feel healthy and good about yourself. Health is beautiful.
