What to Eat Before and After A Workout In The Morning

If you monitor my articles frequently on Begintrend Health, you’d know I am not one of those coaches who say that food is 90% & training is only 10%. I trust that it is 100% of everything–your exercise, nutrition & recovery that gets you consequences. Your overall diet is of greatest importance but your pre & post workout nourishment can meaningfully influence your exercise.

What Makes A Good Pre-Workout Meal?

A decent pre-workout meal should contain plenty of carbohydrates (30-50g) to fuel you for the exercise. A decent chunk of protein (20-40g) to provide amino acids and some portion fat (10-15g).

For such circumstances, I recommend overwhelming a high very compound carb (100-150g) dinner –oats, rotis, and multi-grain cash are an outstanding choice here. This will confirm your glycogen stores are filled up even if you train fasted or consuming fewer carbs.
