Fitness Diet: What To Eat Before, During And After A Heavy Workout Session

Experts suggest eating quality carbohydrates as pre-workout food and lean proteins as post-workout food

Exercising regularly can give the much-needed impetus to a weight loss program and help in bringing the desired results quickly. While the body braves those intense workout routines at the gym, it is all the more important to feed it the right kind of food. Your diet before, during and after workout should be carefully curated to help your body recover from the harsh exercise regime and prepare it to face it again. Probably, we all know this. However, what we may not know is what should we really eat? A recent study has come to relieve us from this confusion. It suggests eating quality carbohydrates as pre-workout food and lean proteins as post-workout food.

The review paper that was published in the ‘Journal of Nutrition’, was carried out by researchers at the University of Sydney in Australia. The study points out that carbohydrate ingestion can improve endurance exercise performance.
