Question: Is there a snack you would suggest I eat before I workout?
Answer: According to the American Dietetic Association, about one hour before a practice or workout, have a carbohydrate-rich snack. Carbohydrates are our bodies preferred source of energy. Some examples of good snacks include:
· A granola bar
· ½ bagel
· Large banana
· Energy bar
· 4-5 graham crackers
Also, remember to drink fluids before you workout. Finish your snack with at least 1 ½ cups (12 ounces) of water or a sports drink.
