Carbs are your new best friend for pre-workout snacks. "The key is to have a mixed bag of complex and simple ones so that the release of energy during your workout is slow and steady throughout your routine. Whole-wheat toast with fruit gives you both types of carbs with the bonus of being super easy to digest. Complex carbs will keep your motor humming, while the fruit adds an extra kick of energy. For those training for a race, bananas are perfect in raising potassium levels, which drop when you sweat a lot. For an added bonus, add a dash of cinnamon. The spice has been linked to stabilizing blood sugar and improving brain function." - Fitness Magazine These are all of my favourite comfort foods! Lately carbs have been getting a lot of hate from people trying to lose weight, but when you eat the RIGHT carbs at the RIGHT time, they can help you workout harder and more effectively.
