Hello. Amino acids contained in proteins will protect your muscles during your workout and help them grow during the recovery phase. Healthy fats and carbohydrates will give you a great energy boost and will make you perfom better. Before every workout you should ingest some kind of lean protein+ health fats and complex carbohydrates. An example of pre-workout meal would be: - a chicken or tuna salad without added fat + a slice of wholewheat bread and some avocado. - two pieces of fruits + raw nuts/ almonds or similar. - chia pudding + raw fruits - oatmeals+ milk and some nuts or similar. As for the post workout meal: This is the only time where fast digesting carbohydrates are okay, as studies show it helps with the muscle recovery growth and hypertrophy. - Pasta, Rice and alike / fruit juice etc. + lean protein ( chicken/ turkey breasts , fish etc). Feel free to try a few of the above options for some time and see how your body reacts to them. Everyone is different and you will have to find what works best for you. Raphael Boury Personal trainer.
