About an hour before your workout a simple, quick and easy to digest meal/snack is best. If time is tight, you can even consider a banana – they’re easy to grab and go. If you have more time, you’ll want a mix of carbohydrates with a bit of protein, totaling no more than 200 calories.
The components of a healthy pre- and post-workout snack are similar: You want a mix of carbohydrates and protein, but since you’ll have more time to digest the food and since intense workouts cause oxidative damage to your cells, it’s a good idea to include an antioxidant-rich foods in an athletic meal plan to combat the added stress.
Skipping recovery fuel by thinking that it will help you lose weight is counterproductive— you won’t be able to build muscle, and your next workout will suffer because you haven’t replenished your stored fuel.
