1. Before gym
Snack about 30–60 minutes before your workout, and keep it small. You need a good combo of carbs and lean protein for fuel.
1 Apple slices with nut butter
2 Banana (simple but effective)
with ½ cup double-cream yoghurt
2. After gym
Eat a meal containing healthy fats, lean protein and complex carbs within 30 minutes of working out, to replenish the glycogen lost in your sweat sesh, and help your muscles repair.
1 Chicken- and avo-stuffed sweet potato
2 Veggie omelette
TIP: Whatever you do, remember to stay hydrated pre-, intra- and post-workout!
