Your body is your vehicle, so you have to keep your engine running when you work out. That means fueling up your body by eating the right foods and drinking the right fluids, in the right amounts at the right times.

Before: Fuel Up!

Ideally, fuel up two hours before you exercise by:

  • Hydrating with water.
  • Eating healthy carbohydrates.
  • Avoiding saturated fats.

If you only have 5-10 minutes before you exercise, eat a piece of fruit such as an apple or banana.

During: Make A Pit Stop

Keep your body hydrated with small, frequent sips of water.

After: Refuel Your Tank

  • Drink water, of course.
  • In the 20-60 minutes after your workout, your muscles can store carbohydrates and protein as energy and help in recovery.
  • Eat things with protein to help repair and grow your muscles.
