Should You Be Eating Before You Work Out, Or After?

Well here is a pretty good rule to go by.

If you are waiting more than 45 minutes to do your workout after you eat, then you should be eating a full meal.

However, if you are on a time crunch and are going to work out less than 45 minutes after you eat … make sure to have a light low calorie protein snack to fuel your body and eat a healthy well balanced meal after you work out to help you muscles

Examples for pre-work out snacks:

Almonds
Cashews
Greek Yogurt
Fruit
Apples w/ peanut or almond butter
Oatmeal
Smoothie
Eggs
Cottage Cheese
Avocado
Cheese (babybel cheese is small and ready to go)fastscorerefill

 

Post work out meals:

Tuna
Kale
Spinach
Sweet potato
Salmon
Stuffed peppers
Tacos
Turkey Wrap
