Whether you’re trying to lose that extra pound or training for a marathon, it’s important to follow a proper diet and be aware of the changes that take place in your body. Here is a breakdown of the process:

Granola and fruit custard are a great option

Working on an empty stomach isn’t the best idea. Always have something healthy before you start to exercise.

Muscle mass can only be gained through proper diet

The body burns fat during your workout and causes muscle loss if you keep working out on an empty stomach.

Exhaustion will kick in if you don’t eat properly

When you’re hungry, your body goes into survival mode and draws protein from the muscle. When this happens, you lose muscle mass, which can ultimately slow down your metabolism and make it harder for you to lose weight.

Avoid unhealthy foods

Also, by not eating before a workout, you are not providing yourself with the energy and power you need for an intense training session. It’s important to eat before exercising. True, but fueling up the wrong way before a run can cause stomach cramps, dizziness, and headaches.

Oatmeal is a good option for a quick meal before workout

Oatmeal tends to have a good amount of fibre. It can be a good solution for runners who have trouble eating prior to running.
