What do you eat pre workouts

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

Happy New Year!  Day 1 for me.  Very excited and nervous.  My question is I workout at 5:30 am MWF and what do you do to fuel before??  Also what do you eat for breakfast after?

 

Thanks so much,

 

Janice

How long is your workout?  Have you always eaten a pre-WO?  I'm from the intermittent fasting crowd, I work out fasted from dinner the night before then feed to recover within two hours.  That doesn't suit all people, nor do I mention it to preach.  :)

I moved this thread to the Whole30 for athletes forum. Browse through here for many possible options for you.

 

The Whole30 recommended pre WO fuel is protein and fat, and post WO is protein and carb.  If you're going to have the postWO fuel, have it within 15-30 minutes after your exercise. Otherwise, just have a template based breakfast later of protein, veg and fat.

Same boat here. I have a hard boiled egg and coffee with coconut milk before working out, and then just have my regular breakfast afterwards (making sure to have some sweet potato or other carb in there).
