Should I Eat Before Hitting the Gym?

Should I eat before or after I work out?

Eat before. A light snack (about 150 to 200 calories) that contains mostly carbs and some protein -- such as a fruit smoothie made with milk or yogurt, a glass of low-fat chocolate milk, or some crackers with a little peanut butter -- is ideal. Eaten a half hour before your sweat session, these filling bites help fuel your muscles, steady your blood sugar, and stave off belly rumbles. If you're exercising for longer than an hour, you should probably refuel afterward, too, says Bonci. Choose small, carb-rich snacks, such as an apple or a banana.
