What to eat Before and After a Workout

Pre-Workout: This would be your energy phase. Eating a pre-workout meal or snack will give you energy, stamina, and help you to kick butt in your workout. You want to ingest healthy carbohydrates in your pre-workout meal or snack.
Food Options:
• Pre-workout balanced meal needs to be consumed about 1-2 hours before your workout. Examples would be a healthy salad, lettuce wraps, fruit smoothie, or an omelet. Aim for about 500-600 calories of a combination of lean proteins and slow acting carbs.
• Pre-workout snacks need to be consumed about 60-90 minutes before training. Examples would be fruit and yogurt, protein shake, apple with peanut butter, cottage cheese with fruit, or a banana and and almonds. Aim for about 100-200 calories of a combination of lean protein and slow acting carbs.
Post-Workout: This would be your anabolic phase. Eating a balance of protein and carbohydrates after your workout will ensure your body has the fuel it needs to recover and improve. Try to eat within 30-60 minutes after exercise.
Food Options:
• Post-workout snacks are acceptable and you could consume a protein shake, Greek yogurt, fruit and nuts, or a banana and peanut butter.
• Post-workout meal is also okay, examples could be salmon and brown rice, chicken and vegetables, sweet potatoes with black beans.
