It is not a secret to anyone that workout is important, but it usually comes as a surprise that it is very personal. The thing is that there is no one-fit-all workout plan, and all we can do is just deal with it.

The very same goes for pre-workout foods. Even though there is a list of foods you should better eat before you head to the gym, we can’t say it is a must. Some people prefer to eat something before exercising, the others choose to do it on an empty stomach, once again it is only a matter of personal preference. Yet, we decided to point out a few foods that will definitely supply you with all the necessary energy required for your workout, what is more, they will also help you build that necessary muscle on and melt that nasty fat (if any) down.

#1 Protein

We all know that protein is great for those who work out and not only. But why is it so good to consume before working out? The thing is that protein-rich foods or supplements will provide you with the necessary energy and will also help you build some muscle in the process. Sounds great, right?

Healthy fats are good for those of you who do not go over the edge with their workout. Moderate workout needs a proper portion of healthy fats before the beginning.

Last but not least, apart from knowing what you should eat you should know when you should do that. Of course, it is best to have a proper meal 2 hours prior to your workout, yet if that is not possible – 1 hour is the least, but you need to make sure you eat something simple and easy to digest.
