Yay Or Nay? Power Foods To Fuel You Before A Workout
Let’s face it - meal planning isn’t always the most fuss-free thing to do - especially before a 8 AM sweat sesh. But, did you know that the right foods can not only help you fuel your workout, but will also help you maximise the impact of your exercise? Trust us, a little planning goes a long way.
“A balanced diet can give you the energy you need to perform better and faster recovery after exercise.”
The perfect formula consisting of the right amount of food and ideal duration for digestion, is important to boost energy and strengthen your body for an optimal calorie burn.
Before we delve in, keep these other important factors in mind:
Timing is everything. While there isn’t a “perfect” time to work out, time is a crucial element to consider when planning your meals before and after your workouts.
Aim to optimally fuel your workout with a light meal 1 to 2 hours prior, or 3 to 4 hours if you've had a heavy meal.
At Kydra, we are huge advocates of balance. We believe in holistic health and not in “quick fixes”. Being consistently healthy is not only about just toiling at the gym, but also striking a good balance between the mind and body.
Consistent, long-term balance in health and fitness will undoubtedly increase the effectiveness in reaching your goals.
Water, water, water – an essential to life! Think of water as the lubricant that hydrates your engine. It not only boosts your workouts but also provides many other health benefits.
Believe it or not, it also helps with weight loss too.
