WHAT TO EAT PRE-EXERCISE

What to eat before exercise depends on the type of exercise and duration of exercise. If you’re an athlete and competing in events, it’s a good idea to get in touch with a Sports Nutritionist who can cater to your needs.

…a meal with a mix of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats.

However, for the general population, participating in a standard workout of 45-60 minutes, a small meal with a mix of protein, carbohydrates and fats can be beneficial to help fuel your workout and aid your recovery.

Here are 3 pre-workout meal ideas:

  1. A slice of whole grain toast/bread with a boiled egg and spread of avocado
  2. Oats with berries and a tsp of nut butter or 10-20g of protein powder
  3. Fruit with high protein or greek yoghurt

In terms of timing, your want to aim to eat 1-2 hours before your workout to ensure food is fully digested.
