WHAT TO EAT BEFORE A WORKOUT
Make sure you eat your meal or snack at least 30-90 minutes before your workout so you don’t feel bloated. Larger meals 90 mins smaller snacks 30 minutes is fine. These foods will help you fuel up the right way...
Oats are full of fibre and release carbs gradually, due to their slow-release, energy levels are kept consistent meaning you can train harder for longer, Irish oats are the best as they are less processed.
A very quick and easy pre-workout fix, they are a great simple carb and easy to digest, dried berries, pineapple and figs.
Bananas are packed entirely with carbohydrates and potassium which supports nerve and muscle function.
WHOLE GRAIN BREAD
One whole-grain slice of bread is an excellent source of carbs.
Nuts do have a high-fat content, but they also provide the protein and calories required if you are trying to gain muscle mass. However, if you're aiming for weight loss, then we suggest you step away from the nuts!!
FRUIT AND GREEK YOGURT
This combo together is incredible!!!!! The fruit is full of carbs, and the greek yoghurt is full of protein.
Greek yoghurt has almost double the protein than regular yoghurt, fewer calories and less sodium. This excellent combination goes well together because the carbs in the fruit break down quickly and are used as fuel during your workout, while the protein stores a little longer so will help prevent muscle breakdown after your training.
