You’ve seen this motivating “get your butt in the gym ASAP” quote before.
And now I’m going to DEFY it!
Summer bodies are not made in the winter because we are mammals and we want to hibernate in the winter and EAT. Plus, it’s cold so you don’t want to work out, and then it all just goes downhill.
I digress(per usual).
What’s important is to eat AND eat CORRECTLY.
Are you eating before the gym?!
YOU BETTER BE!
Seriously though, you need to eat before exerting your body to almost death.
FitTip Fact #1: You can eat carbs!
Yeah, do it!
You’re going to need energy and it’s not going to come from fasting for the last 8 hours!
So what do you eat?!
I’ll tell you!
BEST FOOD EVAAAA BEFORE A WORK OUT::::::
Toast(I prefer Ezekiel)
4 slices of banana(that’s about hald a banana so it WON’T spike up your blood sugar)
Peanut Butter(THIS IS AN ALWAYS for me, but optional for most)
Now let me break this down for you!
You need a mix of complex carbs to break down and fruit and bread are the best for energy purposes, plus the easiest to digest!
Also, Cinnamon is linked to stabilizes blood sugar levels and speeding up the metabolism.
Now, what to have after?!
BEST POST WORK OUT
Protein…but not just a protein shake!
Eat Chicken AND veggies!
You need some serious nutrients because your body is in recovery mode, so grab some chicken and grill up some veggies with a little olive oil and done!
The Chicken will fill you up, the veggies will take care of you, and you will not be bloated so the bikini is on!
