Why I should eat Carbs before/after my workout 🏋️♀️?
In general, you'll want to eat a meal high in carbs and protein and low in fat roughly three to four hours before you exercise, whether you're trying to shed pounds or build muscle. Carbohydrates supply your body with the glycogen it needs for your yoga session or gym visit.
Some examples for meals or snacks before workout are: PJ&J (bread and jelly with peanut butter= carbs and protein), oatmeal with low-fat milk and fruits, fruit and yogurt smoothies, trail mix, low fat latte and apple 🍎, banana 🍌 (this one you could eat 10-5 minutes before the workout). After your workout, your body tries to rebuild its glycogen stores and repair and regrow those muscle proteins. Eating the right nutrients soon after you exercise can help your body get this done faster. It is particularly important to eat carbs and protein after your workout, this should be done right away after workout, you should re stores the protein during the first hour or 15 minutes after the exercises.
Here I give you some ideas of what to eat after your workout: eggs 🍳 and whole wheat toast, whole grain turkey wrap with avocado 🥑, Greek yogurt and fruit, salmon with sweet potato 🍠, chicken-brown rice-veggies.
And remember to drink Enough WATER 💦 before, during and after your workout
