Knowing when and what to eat before workout can make a huge difference in your progress. The most important thing is to pay attention to your body.
If you are empty stomach and you don’t feel good while working out then be assured that your body is trying to tell you something. So pay attention & grab a bite. You will probably see better results if you have eaten something before you workout. But at the same time calorie control remains the key factor.
Here’s how one should handle his diet while working out:
– Large meals: Eat these at least three to four hours before exercising.
– Small meals: Eat these two to three hours before exercising.
– Small snacks: Eat these an hour before exercising.
The body doesn’t store potassium for very long, so a medium banana before a workout will help keep nutrient levels high. Villacorta especially recommends bananas for morning exercisers: “Get up and eat a medium banana with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Wait about 30 minutes and then hit the gym.
