Feed a Workout?

9 May

By Alya Alyssa Kattan

I received a question from a lovely fan about what to eat before a workout.

Thank you so much love for the question and please everyone keep them coming!  Xx and always thanks for visiting my blog!

If you’re exercising for 1 hr or less, a good option would be a grilled chicken sandwich.

Rules to remember: eat a meal 1 or 2 hrs before your workout with at least 200 calories, 20 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbs.

    I do usually workout in the evenings after i finish work (between 7pm to 8 pm) do you recommend to eat anything in specific after i finish work out? I need to lose some weight (around 4 kgs) and build muscles..or should i not eat anything at all since i finish workout a bit late?
    i usually eat a fruit only…please let me know..thanks 🙂

    Hi Mais. I workout around the same time as you as well. After your workout, you should have a protein shake within half an hour, and then eat an easy-absorbing dinner. This can be grilled fish and veggies or any protein and veggies, or a vegetable soup. Alternatively, you can eat an apple and then eat your dinner; although protein shakes are neccessary for muscle recovery and fat loss.
