What To Eat Before And After Your Workouts

What To Eat Before and After Your Workouts

Let’s simplify the pre- and post-workout meals. In this quick video, I provide some guidelines for how to eat to optimize your workout and recovery. These are just guidelines, of course. You will need to modify them to suit your caloric intake and goals.

But, whether you’re leaning down or gaining muscle, it’s important to get quality protein and carbs before and after training. If you’re training first thing in the morning, at least try to get 20-25g of protein in.

Keep fats low and try to keep fiber intake relatively low, too. This will help your body digest and absorb nutrients more readily.

  1. I've been lifting weights for thirty years now and always in the morning. My go to for pre workout is cereal. My weapon of choice is either frosted mini wheats or a lucky charms variant. Post workout is a whet protein shake with frozen fruit to make it like a milkshake. My go to is chocolate with a big scoop of peanut butter and a frozen banana.

  2. Thank you for this informative information. No trainer I've worked with has given me this information. This explains why I've lost so much muscle. Love your videos, cant wait to see more

  3. Can you post your workout split in detail! I’m so curious and need a new split! You’re amazing btw!! I love your videos!!♥️♥️

  4. @Erin, I cannot exercise with anything in my stomach. If I eat absolutely anything including a shake within 3 hrs of exercising, my stomach feels heavy and if running, jumping or abs workout is included, I feel like I'm going to return everything I've eaten. How can work around that?

  5. I am leaning back out. I like to eat high protein low fat foods. Like my fat everyday is under 28 grams fat. Is that ok or to low? I am 5’10” 143lbs and 47. Thoughts? I want to lean back out to 127lbs. Thanks!!

  6. I lost 80 lbs intermittent fasting. I started lifting around the 70 lb mark. I feel like there’s not much info for us IF people. If you know of any tips or advice on how to integrate IF with lifting (or if it’s a no go), that would be awesome! I have muscle, but I may or may not be getting all that I can from the lifting. I’m not sure though.

  7. As always, I appreciate the information you provide to us on an ongoing basis. I have learned so much from you! Please could you maybe sometime include something on what supplements you take and how they fit in nutritionally. Thank you!
