What should you eat before and after your workout at the gym?

Proper nutrition is an important part of any training process.

This is a very important point and is missed by many. Or they don't eat before training, thinking that they will burn more fat this way, or they don't know what to eat, or they don't have time.

It is clear that everyone has business, family, work, but if you make time for training, then make time for eating before training.

You, having bought a car, do not eat until you refuel it, here is the same: 5-10 minutes for a meal is enough and let the whole world wait.

Weight training is a separate topic. If you are comfortable and you are not dizzy, then exercise, but you should not exhaust yourself with hunger and exercise with discomfort, you will definitely not achieve a good result from this.

Training requires strength and energy, otherwise, after training, zhor will attack you and you will pounce on any food unconsciously, the body will definitely take its own.

Therefore, EAT, but within the normal range of KBZHU. 1.5 - 2 hours before a workout, the following are good:

Cereals, durum pasta, whole potatoes.

All this can be supplemented with protein products:

  • meat;
  • a fish;
  • eggs;
  • seafood.


Do not eat fatty foods, they are difficult to digest and interfere with the absorption of proteins and carbohydrates.
