Summer is here, and people have set themselves some ridiculous body goals, to fit into their favorite clothes.
You’re willing to do whatever it takes, to fit in a quick cardio, everyday. Whether it’s just a quick jog around the park, or a full sprint. Whether you’re a casual runner, or a serious marathon one, it’s important to fuel your body before.
Being a foodie, we’re willing to eat before, and after a run, and pretty much just all the time. But don’t you feel that no amount of running or cardio, is helping you get to the body goal you really want? Or that you find yourself absolutely exhausted, just 5 minutes into your cardio session? It’s probably because you aren’t feeding your body! Your body needs food to burn calories, so stop starving yourself, or following some ridiculous diet there is a list of Foods To Eat Right Before Cardio to loose weight faster.
Top 7 Foods To Eat Right Before Cardio To Loose Weight Faster
They’re naturally sugary, so that’s a plus. It helps your muscle function, with its potassium levels. And it offers you a quick dose of carbs, which actually fuels your body. So don’t freak out, just because we mentioned carbs. Try eating 1/4 cup, 30-60 minutes before your workout.
As you all know Coffee contains caffeine. Research has shown that caffeine can actually help boost performance and athletic endurance, despite what the other myths say.
3. Toast With Nut Butter and Honey
Frankly, that sounds delicious, who doesn’t like peanut butter and honey? Plus, it offers slow-burning fats and quick carbs – that your body actually needs, so stop freaking out with words like ‘fat’, and ‘carbs’! Although, go for low fibre bread, instead of white bread, why don’t you.
4. Low Fiber Cereal
Also a very very, small bowl of it. We’re talking about ¾ cup, with milk of your choice. And anything less than 2 grams in fibre is fine, because high-fibre cereal is ridiculously difficult to digest.
5. Banana and Nut Butter
If you aren’t already eating this before a run, you really should be. It’s a classic combo, and it’s full of potassium, which helps maintain the same glucose levels, a sports drink would, but without all the added sugar. The almond / peanut butter will add protein too, to get some gains in.
6. Small Toast/ English Muffin With Jelly
Believe it or not, an english muffin with jelly just has about 13 grams of carbs. It’s perfect to fuel your body, and easy to digest. Also an English ‘muffin’ is very different to your idea of a ‘muffin’, so please don’t be buying a bunch of regular muffins, and loading them with jelly.
Yes, we do mean mashed apples, like baby food. Babies like it, so why not give it a try? It’s a low-fibre snack, and easy for your body to digest during your run. You can even add a few nuts or boiled eggs to it, to spruce it up, and get your protein intake.
