Not Sure What to Eat Before and After a Workout?

Many of us are confused what should we eat before and after exercise.I’ve prepared few short tips for you to resolve this mystery.Pre-exercise:Before working out it is important to eat something light. By light, I mean, you should avoid a large, protein, fiber and fat filled meal as it takes up to 4 hour to process such food. You should eat a light low-fat, low-sugar, low-protein, high carbohydrate meal. Carbohydrates will give you much needed fuel for efficient work out. Trust me, you’ll work out better and burn all of them. Eat proteins, your body will need to spend energy for processing food, you’ll workout won’t be as intense.

After Exercise:Now your body needs raw materials to recuperate after your workout. The priority is to first replace any fluids lost during exercise. Replenish yourself with plenty of water and juice as soon as you finish exercising. (Easy on juice if you’re trying to loose weight as juices can be high on sugar.). The post-work out meal should contain some protein, some complex carbohydrates and some healthy fats too. Yes, carbohydrates again. Eating after exercise is important as well to restore glycogen and that can only happen with a meal containing both protein and complex carbohydrates.
