Pre-workout Meal

Depending on your fitness goal and your workout routine, your pre-workout meal shouldn't be too large so you feel sick during your workout. Remember! I am a HUGE fan of fasted a.m. cardio for optimal fat burn. On the other hand, if your goal is muscle-gain, you shouldn't ever skip this meal as working out on an empty stomach could even lose you muscle. We also want to be sure we are hydrated properly.

So to sum it all up, an effective meal could look like this:

•30-40 grams of whey protein mixed in 300-400ml of Skim Milk (or HEB's lower sugar, higher protein MooTopia Milk!) or water
•A serving of low-glycemic carbohydrates (eg: apple, oatmeal, yogurt, wheat bread)
