What to eat before a workout?

If you are a person who exercises on an empty stomach - you should change that. Yes, when you exercise on an empty stomach, you feel lighter and more agile, but you must have once felt sick during or after exercise. The idea of ​​not eating anything before training is just as bad as the idea of ​​overeating.

With that in mind, now you’re probably wondering what it is that you can eat to satiate yourself enough while exercising. In fact, there is a wide range of foods that you can eat before training - which will give you enough energy, and at the same time will not make you feel heavy. But, let's solve a few things first - should we eat before training?

Depending on when you decide to exercise - it also depends on whether you should consume something before training. For example, if you exercise in the morning, you probably do it on an empty stomach, which is not such a good idea. During the night, our stomach is empty because it has taken everything it needs from dinner, and it is ready to accept other food, the one we will eat in the morning when we get up. Of course, the food you eat in the morning before you go to training depends on what type of training you plan for that morning. If you go to yoga - you will not need as much energy as when you run.

When should you take something to eat before training?

No matter what type of training you want to do, it is recommended that you eat half an hour before, especially if it is a slightly heavier meal. When you eat your last bite or drink the whole shake, wait half an hour for the food to settle in your stomach.

What foods should you eat before training?

In this part, it is very important to emphasize one thing - do not burden yourself with calories. What you should pay attention to is to consuming food that is easy to digest. Carbohydrates are often assumed to be great enemies, but we must remember that they are nutrients that give us energy. Just as it is recommended to consume protein, because it helps to regenerate muscles, so it is also recommended to consume some types of carbohydrates before training so that the body has enough energy.

Before training, you can consume various dishes, such as peanut butter and bananas. Peel a banana and cut it in half, then spread peanut butter and a little honey. This combination is the perfect balance between healthy fats, sugar, and potassium found in bananas, which will help to absorb nutrients faster and will give your body enough energy for training.

Oatmeal with fruit is definitely the best breakfast for anyone who exercises in the morning. Prepare the oatmeal in almond milk, add one mashed banana and a little honey, then put it all in a bowl, chop the berries, add the nuts and chia seeds and you're ready.

Also, the green smoothie has everything you need for training. These smoothies are made from several basic foods, such as frozen banana, almond milk, and spinach, the rest can vary depending on what you have in the fridge. You can add apples, pears, berries, etc. If you are going to train after work - it is best to eat some protein chocolate before training.
