Who wouldn't want to burn more fat during a workout? Here's the latest, easy to do news.
Yeah! You are motivated to work out! You have your workout clothes and shoes on, music ready, and you've stretched, but before you work out, eat energizing carbohydrates first. Want to burn more fat during your workout? Eat whole grain foods and produce, foods high in fiber such as most veggies, whole grain bread, or high fiber cereals. According to British researchers eating high fiber foods prior to your workout will help you burn as much as 55% more fat. You should avoid eating sweetened foods and drinks, and refined foods that will cause your blood sugar to spike causing insulin and glucose to release. Great news: low-GI foods suppress hunger.
After your workout eat protein foods like egg whites, almond butter or peanut butter, Greek yogurt, or fat-free milk. The protein will help rebuild muscle!
Let me hear from you....what did you eat today prior to your workout, and after? I'm logging out now, grabbing some low-GI, energizing carbs, and heading to the Valley Gym! See ya later! Love, Nancy
