On February 25, 2013, Muscular Development Store offers tips on ways to get a quick nutritional boost to maximize your workout’s effectiveness in response to Pop Sugar’s various recommended recipes for pre-workout snacks.
Pop Sugar author Jenny Sugar offers various suggestions for easy-to-prepare pre-exercise snacks. “Fueling up before a workout is essential; it gives the body sustained energy and also keeps metabolism going at a consistent pace to help burn calories,” says Sugar.
Recommendations from Jenny Sugar include outré options such as gluten-free quinoa pizza bites with eggs and cheese, as well as perennial favorites like the classic fruit smoothie. Also on the list are strawberry banana creams, made by filling cored strawberries with banana yogurt and sliced almonds: “Enjoy eight cream-filled berries for 145 calories, eight grams of protein, and 23 grams of carbs.”
Sugar also suggests that for regular, everyday workouts, the ideal snack is around or under 150 calories, and contains both carbohydrates and protein, but a low enough fiber content to avoid causing digestive problems.
Brian Turner of Muscular Development Store offers his response, saying that the recipes conform to a nutritionally sound approach to pre-workout energizing. Turner adds that for some people, pre-workout supplements might be a preferable option, commenting, “Since supplements can supply the body with needed nutrients that can be absorbed into the bloodstream more rapidly than whole foods, they’re a great alternative for many people engaging in intensive workouts. Yes, it's absolutely essential that we provide ourselves with enough fuel. But the process of digestion can be pretty taxing – it consumes a lot of the body’s resources, many of which we want to make use of when exercising. This is especially the case for protein, which requires a decent amount of energy to break down.”
Turner concludes that each person should assess their fitness goals with respect to their diet and lifestyle to determine what works best for them.
