Nutrition Tips for a Post-Workday Workout

Nutrition Tips for How to Eat so You Have Enough Energy for a Post-Workday Workout!

- Eat balanced meals/snacks throughout the day so your hunger isn’t out of control when you get home

- Stay hydrated – have a water bottle with you at your desk – better yet, save money and the environment by buying a reusable (BPA-free) water bottle!

- Pre workout snacks should be high in carbs, moderate in protein, and low in fat and fiber (to prevent stomach upset)

For 1 hour prior to workout:

- ½ slice whole wheat bread with 1 TBSP peanut butter

- handful of crackers with 1 oz cheese

- ½ cup yogurt or cottage cheese with a ½ cup fresh fruit

For 15-30 min prior to workout:
