How to Fuel Your Workout

Standard

fuel your workout

Everyone always want to know what should I eat during or after my workouts. Here are some very good tips to help decide what will work for you and what is best for you. It’s always a trial and error due to some people who have diet restrictions.  Such as Nut or Gluten Allergy.  What works for me is always almonds and chocolate milk before and after my workout.  Usually after my workouts is always dinner time so I would have a proper dinner instead having unnecessary snacks.

Before you workout (best an hour before):

  • 1 cup of chocolate milk
  • Apple slices with peanut butter or almond butter
  • Whole wheat crackers with hummus
  • A handful of almonds
  • 1 Banana

After you workout (best within 30 minutes):

  • 1 scoop of 20-gram protein powder and almond or regular nonfat milk
  • 1/2 whole wheat sandwich with 4 ounces of lean meat
  • 1 cup of chocolate milk
  • Almond butter sandwich
  • Whole wheat crackers with hummus
  • A handful of almonds and juice
  • A hard-boiled egg and a piece of fruit
  • A piece of low-fat cheese and a few whole wheat crackers
  • Greek yogurt and fruit or cottage cheese with fruit or veggies
  • A glass of milk with an English muffin
