Fuel your fitness regime with these power foods

0 comments

You have to eat the right foods to fuel your workout. Before you get set to hit the gym, you may want to re-consider your diet. Sometimes unknowingly we eat things that instead of helping our workout go against it. The result is… well… no result, even hours after sweating it out!

Balance is the key. You can’t run on an empty stomach or even stuff yourself after your workout. A pre-workout meal or snack prepares your body for exercise, whereas a post-workout meal helps in rebooting the body’s drained muscles. Here is a list of food items that get the best out of your workout.

Pre-workout Food

1) Greek Yogurt- Greek yogurt is high on protein and is easy to digest. It is great if you’re going to follow it up with a high-intensity cardio workout.

Post-workout food

1) Salmon- Salmon is full of heart-healthy omega-3 fats, an ideal source of protein for muscle recovery after a tiring workout.

3) Chocolate milk- It boosts post-workout recovery and provides carbohydrate replenishment for your muscles. It is also enriched with calcium and refuels the body’s sugar level.
