Fuel Your Body For Exercise

I have trained many people over the past 15 years at all different times of the day. One thing holds true and that is we have to fuel our bodies in order to get the most out of our exercise routine. Whenever I have a client who is feeling dizzy or weak during a session the first thing I ask is when is the last time they ate something. Usually the answer is that it had been a while since fueling up.
There is a lot of misinformation out there about when to eat and how much to eat. I am a simple person and I like to keep things simple. Our bodies are machines and those machines need fuel to run. I still occasionally hear someone say that they were told not to eat before a workout because then they would burn more fat. This is the same as saying your car would run better if it didn’t have any gas in the tank and we all know that just isn’t true.
We need to eat before a workout. I’m not talking a full meal but we need something in our bodies to keep us going. A piece of fruit can be a real boost for any workout and your body will know what to do with that fuel.
Until next time…..
