With fitness comes multiple questions. From how do I lose weight faster to how can I get the most of my workout session? All these question leads to one thing and one thing only food. Eating the right food at the right time is a major key to keeping fit and burning off those extra pounds, and as we all know, working out at the gym or at home isn’t no child’s play, so the right food for and after each session is a must know for all fit fam.
Here are 5 best food to eat before and after an exercise session.
NUTS AND APPLES
Specifically almond nuts. These nuts are high in protein and contain heart-healthy fats and fiber. A 100 gram serving of almonds contains about 3.9 grams of carbohydrates, just about the perfect amount for the toughest of workouts. Adding an apple, is extra fibre for the session.
OATMEAL AND BLUEBERRIES
Oatmeal is high in protein, and an added pump with blueberries known for their carb content and vitamin C, potassium (good for your liver) and fiber potency, makes for another perfect meal to have before a workout session.
BANANA WITH ALMOND BUTTER
Bananas are not only filled with potassium but also vitamins C and B-6. Bananas are also high in carbohydrates, which gives you extra energy for that training session.
PROTEIN SHAKES WITH ALMOND MILK
After a workout, there is need for a quick sustenance and some much needed nutrition after exercising, a protein shake is ideal as it requires little digestion so the body absorbs quickly. Mixing with almond milk which is rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin E, and magnesium is an extra boost.
MULTI-GRAIN BREAD WITH RAW PEANUT BUTTER
Provides the body with healthy protein and carbs for that energizer. Peanut butter is actually an option, but can won’t hinder your weight loss journey should it be added.
