How Food Boosts Exercise

Plan your food around your workouts to maximise the effects of your workouts. Have a balanced meal of lean protein and whole grains 2–3 hours before your workouts and have a high-protein meal within an hour of your workouts. Emphasise fresh, local fruits and vegetables and lean meats, eggs, and fish, while limiting refined foods, simple sugars, hydrogenated oil, and alcohol to achieve an overall nutritional balance that will promote weight loss and high energy, which will make your workout regimen truly effective.
