One of the hardest things to really nail down about an exercise routine is what to eat and when to eat before a workout. You don’t want to feel sick during the workout, but you also don’t want to have no energy due to a lack of food. If you work out at three in the afternoon this is less of a problem, but for people who work out early in the morning or late at night it can be something of an issue. The harsh reality of the situation is that everybody is different, and it will take some trial and error to really nail down your eating habits, but here are a few tips to help you out.

Typically, it’s good to eat a full meal about two to three hours before you work out. If that is impossible because you work out at six in the morning and don’t want to get up at four just to eat some cereal, try to down a banana an hour beforehand, or some coffee or tea with sugar just before starting. The trick is to understand that the food needs to be easier to digest as you get closer to the workout. Having steak and eggs twenty minutes before you go on a run is going to be hellish at best and put you off running for a while, but having a Shot Block or a smoothie won’t be as bad.

Again, really figuring out what makes you energetic and feel good during a workout will take some trial and error. Some people are able to eat burritos in the middle of a run; some people can’t even think the word “burrito” during a run. Everybody’s different. The thing to remember is that you need to tailor what you eat to when you will be working out, and eat faster digesting things closer to the workout.

The one main takeaway is not to over eat prior to exercise. If you need to invest in some basic fruit or even quick electrolyte type of products that quickly get absorbed, then that may be the way to go in the future.
