Fuel your workout with a snack

Filed under: ,

Do you work out on an empty stomach? I try not to because I feel lethargic -- plus the loud grumbling in my stomach must be distracting to the other members. But it's a good idea to get a pre-workout snack, say eDiets. It doesn't have to be anything big -- a few complex cards should do, like a piece of fruit or some crackers or toast.

Eating after your workout is important too, particularly if you do strength training. Again, carbs are key, but this time, add a bit of protein. A turkey sandwich is a prime example.

What do you eat to keep your energy up?
