Do you ever wonder how you can get more out of your workouts? How you can burn more calories and feel strong even on those extra tough days at the gym?
The answer is simple, EAT before you workout. It’s so important to eat something before your workout, yes, even your early morning gym goers. There are 3 main reasons: First when you workout on an empty stomach your blood sugar is low and can cause a light-headed feeling. Secondly, food is fuel. Eat something before you workout and it will give your metabolism a kickstart! And lastly, while the research shows you will burn the same amount of fat rather your eat or not before a workout, you can lose muscle by not eating. When your hungry your body goes into survival mode, and draws protein from the muscles instead of it’s normal source, the liver and kidneys. The more lean muscle you have the faster you burn fat. So, eat up and then enjoy your workout.
If food is fuel, get premium! Fuel your body with things that will help it, and not hurt it. Here are our idea’s for a pre-workout meal.
