Should You Eat Before A Workout

Question: Should I eat before a workout? See answer below!


Answer: Yes! You need fuel for the workout. Your body needs blood sugar in order to exercise. If there is not enough circulating blood sugar it will break down muscle for fuel. Eat about 45 minutes to 1 hour before the workout. If your stomach is very sensitive to food in it you may need to eat 1.5-2 hours before the workout. Eat 200-300 calories of a combination of carbohydrates and protein.



Examples: 

Fruit & yogurt

Pretzels & almond or peanut butter

Rice crackers & Cheese or Daiya vegan cheese




I received no incentive to mention certain brands or products. All opinions expressed are my own from my own experience.

I have previously reviewed the Bali Body Natural Tanning and Body Oil and the Bali Body Cacaco Tanning Oil here. The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
