Regardless of your motivation – weight loss, increased strength and muscle or overall fitness, exercise is vitally important in reaching your goals. One factor that can help you get the most from your training is choosing the right foods to eat before and after each workout.
What you eat before you exercise provides energy for those heart-pounding cardiovascular workouts or those intense HIIT or cycle sessions. Eating the right foods, or combination of foods will preventing hunger while exercising, provide sustained energy, improve your endurance and muscle strength and even help burn more calories and improve focus and concentration. After your workout, choosing the right foods will replenish depleted glycogen (energy) stores and feed muscle tissues to help them repair.
