I like a banana rolled in a small amount of yogurt,then rolled in a small amount of diced walnuts before a workout. Then drink a greek yogurt,fruit smoothie an hour after. This heps me with portioning and cravings before lunch or dinner. Report

Keep it healthy, use the snacks you have that are healthy and within your guidelines. Report
I'm glad the author made the point, in the second paragraph, that most people in fact DO NOT NEED a "pre-workout" snack. I just wish it had been emphasized more. Most people vastly overestimate the number of calories they burn during exercise, and consuming unnecessary calories just because you think you need a special snack is a recipe for undermining your effort. Just eat regular, nutritious meals and snacks that already fit into you rdaily calorie and nutrient allotment.

I also question a few of the snacks suggested: Fig newtons? Peanut butter and jelly? Really -- have you read the nutrition labeling on those? Most brands are full of sugar, refined starch, and fat! Report
