Knowing what to eat for pre-workout nutrition can be a daunting list of what you should and shouldn’t consume. Here is a simple list of the best choices to maximize your gym time!

PRE-WORKOUT NUTRITION FOR STARTERS

Finish eating at least 60 minutes before training to give enough time for digestion to take place. While training you want your blood to flow freely to your working muscles and not in your stomach trying to digest your food.

PROTEIN

Consume a fast-digesting protein source to stimulate protein synthesis prior to training. This will help establish a greater muscle protein turnover rate (building lean muscle mass) and prevent muscle protein breakdown (muscle loss).

  • Chicken
  • Egg Whites
  • Fish
  • Tofu

CARBOHYDRATES

Eat a moderate amount of carbohydrates to provide your body with readily available energy to make it through a hard training session.

  • Oats
  • Cream of Rice
  • Sprouted Grains
  • Potato
Strawberry Overnight Oatmeal

FATS

Add in a small amount of dietary fat. Doing this helps to keep blood sugar stable, and prevents the chance of going hypoglycemic during training because the added fat will slow the entry of glucose into the bloodstream.

  • Peanuts/Peanut Butter
  • Almonds/Almond butter
  • Cashews/Cashew Butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Butter

🤔Should you eat before you workout? Should you not?

Everybody is different. Some prefer a “fasted cardio” while others would just drop if they didn’t have something in them

Whatever works to #FindYourStrength is the best decision for YOU.
