ARE YOU SLOGGING THROUGH YOUR WORKOUT, FEELING TIRED AND HUNGRY? AFTERWARDS, DO YOU FEEL DRAINED OR ENERGY? YOU MAY NOT BE PROVIDING YOUR BODY WITH ADEQUATE NUTRIENTS TO FUEL YOUR WORKOUT AND RESTORE THE ENERGY YOU DEPLETED. THESE IDEAS FOR PRE- AND POST- WORKOUT SNACKS CAN HAVE YOU FEELING ENERGIZED FROM START TO FINISH!
FUEL UP BEFORE YOUR WORKOUT
IF YOU WORK OUT FIRST THING IN THE MORNING AND DON'T HAVE TIME TO EAT BEFOREHAND, THAT'S NOT A PROBLEM, AS LONG AS YOU'RE SURE TO DRINK WATER FIRST. BUT IF YOU'RE EXERCISING IN THE AFTERNOON OR EVENING, REMEMBER TO EAT A SNACK AN HOUR OR TWO BEFORE. THE SNACK SHOULD CONSIST OF COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES, WHICH WILL HELP YOUR WORKOUT AND KEEP BLOOD SUGAR UP.
PRE-WORKOUT PICKS: *WHOLE-GRAIN CRACKERS *A BANANA OR APPLE *ONE-HALF WHOLE-GRAIN BAGEL
IF YOU EXERCISE FOR ONE HOUR OR MORE, YOU'RE PROBABLY DEPLETING GLYCOGEN STORES(CARBOHYDRATES STORED IN THE MUSCLES), WHICH CAN LEAD TO FATIGUE. TO REPLENISH GLYCOGEN STORES IT'S KEY TO EAT CAROBYDRATES WITHIN AN HOUR OF WORKING OUT. YOUR BEST BET IS TO EAT A SNACK THAT COMBINES BOTH FORMS OF ENERGY. PROTEIN IS ALSO RECOMMENDED AS A POST-WORKOUT SNACK FOR ANYONE PERFORMING STRENGTH-TRAINING EXERCISES. (STRENGTH TRAINING ACTUALLY TEARS MUSCLE FIBERS. THOSE FIBERS NEED PROTEIN TO BEGIN THE REBUILDING PROCESS THAT LEADS TO TONED, STRONGER MUSCLES.)
*SMALL TURKEY SANDWICH ON WHOLE-GRAIN BREAD *STRING CHEESE AND AN APPLE *A STALK OF CRISP CELERY WITH PEANUT BUTTER *UNSALTED, RAW ALMONDS AND RAISINS

WHEN YOU SIT TO EAT WITH A RULER, CONSIDER DILIGENTLY WHAT IS BEFORE YOU.
WHETHER, THEREFORE YOU EAT OR DRINK, OR WHATSOEVER YOU DO, DO ALL THE GLORY OF GOD.
