On March 14, Muscular Development Store, a leading whey protein supplement retailer, responds to an article published on the Calgary Herald, which discusses what people should eat before working out.
According to the Calgary Herald, there are two paths of thought towards fueling for a workout. Some experts suggest not eating before a workout to burn calories and others suggest eating as often as possible, reports Calgary Herald.
Brian Turner, a spokesperson for the Muscular Development Store, says it’s also best to stay away from heavy foods before you work out. “Don’t think eating a steak dinner before your workout is a healthy decision,” he says. “Something simple and small will do the trick, like a shake made with whey protein. The protein will help build your muscle and maximize growth when you work out hard.”
Turner says whey protein contains some of the most important amino acids for muscle nourishment and growth. He says pure whey protein can be mixed into shakes before exercising to increase results when weight training. “Though many bodybuilders use whey protein to bulk up, it’s still good to use it for nourishment,” he says. “It helps to repair cells and muscle tissue and keeps you fuller for a longer period of time. It’s excellent for weight loss.”
Calgary Herald advises against eating bananas before workouts, but Turner says a piece of banana could go a long way when you exercise. “While bananas do contain a lot of carbs, they also have a lot of potassium, which you usually sweat out,” he says. “Potassium also helps prevent muscle soreness, so it’s good to eat a banana before or after a workout.”
Calgary Herald advises to avoid eating before easy workouts. “If you’re not working very hard, eating before is not going to matter much,” reports Calgary Herald.
