FUEL UP WITH THESE FOODS

Updated: Oct 4

Running out the door for a workout? Stick to simple carbohydrates, which are easily digested. Some good options are a slice of toast with jam, a small apple or banana, or a small box of raisins. If you’ve got at least 1–2 hours before a workout, here are some more satisfying options to consider:

  • Oatmeal with fresh berries and nut butter

  • Turkey sandwich on one slice of whole-grain bread

  • Bagel with banana and peanut butter

  • Rice bowl with veggies, chicken or salmon

  • Yogurt or protein smoothie shake

  • Scrambled eggs, avocado

What to eat before working out is very important. However, what not to eat is just as important for an awesome exercise experience. Exercise requires a large volume of blood to be pumped to working muscles. Blood flow to the stomach is reduced during exercise. For this reason, you don’t want your stomach to work harder than it has to because that may lead to stomach issues. While some people may have no issues and can get away with eating some of these pre-workout no-no’s, in general most folks should avoid these nine foods before exercise.


  1. BEANS

  2. DAIRY

  3. FRIED OR FATTY FOODS

  4. ALCOHOL

  5. SPICY FOODS

  6. DESSERTS

  7. FRUIT JUICE

  8. CARBONATED BEVERAGES

  9. CRUCIFEROUS VEGGIES: BROCCOLI, BRUSSELS SPROUTS, CABBAGE, CAULIFLOWER & BOK CHOY
