Here are few basic foods that you can eat a few hours prior to working out! As a Portland personal trainer, we also recommend our clients not to eat any heavy proteins before working out. If you are, make sure it is at least three hours before a workout.
- baked potato + cottage cheese filling + glass of milk
- baked beans on toast
- breakfast cereal with milk
- bread roll with cheese/meat filling + banana
- fruit salad with fruit-flavored yogurt
Remember, these foods are used a few hours before working out. If you decide to have a quick small snack prior to working out, make sure that it will be digested quickly and used for energy at that moment of activity. For example, a banana or a few apple slices are perfect for this.
