Foods Workout

You need to eat food to fuel a workout, which is a great excuse to devour your favourite snack before hitting the gym. As David Wiener, training and nutrition specialist at fitness app Freeletics, pointed out: “If you exercise on an empty stomach, your body won’t have enough energy to perform at its best.”

But – and this is a pretty important but – it’s just as bad to eat the wrong thing before a workout as it is to eat nothing at all. And that’s because “all your energy will go towards digesting that food” instead of powering your exercise.
