What should we eat before and after the gym?

Exercise is normally related to how much work out we do or how long we do it for, but that’s not the only thing that matters when we are looking for results. How and what we eat before and after practice makes a big difference!

It’s through what we eat that we get our fuel to exercise. Carbohydrates are our main source of energy. It’s because of them that we can actually work out, but it’s important to remember that we can’t eat lots of carbs. Some foods have the right amount of carbohydrates like bananas, mangoes and onions, like we saw on our last post!

To get bigger muscles you should eat more often, it sounds strange but it works. It’s obvious that the meals can’t be big and they must be regulated based in what exercise is being practiced and your goal. Athletes normally eat 8 to 9 times a day to keep their energy reserve and to make sure that their body doesn’t consume important nutrients to the growth of muscles.

After working out, it’s really important that what you eat is easy to digest and rich in “energy”, and that means carbs and fibers. Yogurt, breads and granolas are the most recommended.granola
