|Oats for breakfast|
From personal experience, I know that eating about an hour before a workout is the best idea.
A mix of carbohydrates and protein, no fat. Fat slows down the emptying of the stomach - not a good idea when you need the focus to be on your muscles, not still digesting your food!
Carbs and protein give you an energy boost and balance your blood sugar and hormones so that you can tackle your workout in optimal condition.
|Coffee boosts your workout|
Good breakfast options include:
- Whole-grain cereals or bread
- Low-fat milk
- Vegetable and fruit-based juice
