The Best Pre-Workout Foods

BLOG
Back in 2014 I posted a couple of blogs about workouts you can do in a fun way.
I thought that you can do your workout better when you can some tips.
This time you get a couple of tips what you can eat before you do your workout.
So below the best Pre-Workout foods.

Bananas
Bananas are loaded with digestible carbohydrates and are packed with potassium, which aids in maintaining nerve and muscle function.
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.
Your body will need the carbohydrates and protein.”

Oats
Oats are full of fiber, which means they gradually release carbohydrates into your bloodstream, Burke points out. (But they’re not so full of fiber that they’ll cause gas.)
This steady stream keeps your energy levels consistent during your workout.
Oats also contain B vitamins, which help convert carbohydrates into energy.
Help yourself to one cup at least 30 minutes before you begin exercising.

Wholegrain bread
A slice of wholegrain bread is a good source of carbohydrates.
And it has flexible partners, Top it off with jam or honey for more fuel or sliced up hard-boiled eggs for high-quality protein.
If you’re hitting the gym during your lunch break, grab some bread about 45 minutes before you head out.
Top it with a couple slices of turkey, At this time of day, you should eat about 30 grams of carbohydrates and 15 to 20 grams of protein.

Fruit smoothies
Fruit smoothies are high in carbohydrates and high-quality protein.
They’re easy to consume and are rapidly digested, Try blending 1/2 cup plain, low-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup fruit and 1 cup fruit juice.
People tend to skip fruit and other foods that are high in carbs, but protein doesn’t break down fast enough to become fuel for a workout.
The carbs from fruit break down quickly and the protein is used later to prevent muscle damage.

What to avoid
If you’re going to stray from this list, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
Be sure to avoid fatty foods before working out—fat leaves the stomach very slowly, which means you’ll feel full and sluggish and could cramp up easily.
Although carbohydrates are good, you should not get them from raw sugar or candy.
Either of those foods will cause a sugar rush and probably a crash while you’re mid-workout. Also, don’t overeat before you workout.
These are all snack—not meal—suggestions.
Eating too much can cause indigestion, sluggishness, nausea and vomiting.
