Ever had hunger pangs strike just an hour or two before your workout? When that happens, turn to a high-protein snack to satisfy your tummy without getting stitches during training.
Protein takes a longer time than carbs to digest, so adding it to your pre-workout snack will help you feel satiated till your next meal. Protein also fuels your muscles to prevent fatigue, so you can perform your best during trainings.
According to Australia-based sports dietitian and blogger Chloe McLeod, a snack should have 10-15g of protein to ensure you feel satiated. These pre-workout snack options are best eaten one to two hours before your workout. All recipes are designed for one serving. If you’re peckish within an hour of your workout, have carbohydrate-based snacks like bananas or rice cakes for a faster release of energy.
