Nine Snacks for a Better Workout

ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Want to get the most out of a sweat session? Here’s some tips on what to bite into for a worthy workout.

Your workout can go one of two ways: you feel motivated and energized or it can zap your last bit of energy. The right meal beforehand can help you keep up your momentum.

First on the list: yogurt. Make sure it’s plain with no added sugar. Sweet tooth lovers can add a teaspoon of honey.

Even though a banana weighs in at 90 calories, they’re packed with potassium. Potassium is vital to stop muscle cramps and spasms, common after workouts. Other choices are fruits like citrus and apples.

Try apple sauce for a natural sugary kick.

If you need something filling, choose whole wheat bread. Top it with a cut up hard-boiled egg for a kick of protein without weighing you down. And for coffee lovers, stick with it. A hot drink like herbal tea or coffee is low in calories and can satisfy hunger.

Lastly, carrots are rich in vitamin A and take a long time to digest.

Always make sure you eat three hours before your workout to pack in energy and drinking a bottle of water keeps you from feeling bloated.
