Best Pre- and Post-Workout Meals to Fuel Your Sweat Session
Food affects your progress in the gym more than you might think. The wrong workout meals will prevent you from losing fat and compromise muscle growth, while the best workout meals will support fat burning and muscle repair and so you see more results when you exercise.
Fasting is a great pre-workout meal alternative. It speeds up fat loss and preserves muscle.
Save carbs for your post-workout meal so they replenish your glycogen-deprived muscles. Be sure they’re quality carbs, not high-glycemic, junky ones.
To support muscle repair, prioritize plenty of complete protein in your workout meals. You can also take collagen protein after your workouts to help your joints recover.
