Eating a snack before your workout is not a necessity. A snack is great if it’s been hours since your last full meal or if you notice that you run out of steam in the middle of a workout. A good pre-workout snack should not be fried or fatty. It should be high in complex sugars and carbohydrates. It can be high in fiber, but take note of how your body reacts to it. Protein won’t really give you fuel for your workout so keep the amount moderate. Here are 7 great snacks that you can eat before your workout.
