Doing sports or any type of physical activity, requires an expenditure of energy proportional to the activity that you are going to play. It is good practice not to make meals too abundant before embarking on the usual sports activities, nor will begin our training or at least our activities on an empty stomach. In relation to the type of sport you follow, especially at a competitive level, the real diets. For this reason, together we will see, in broad terms, what to eat before exercising.

In the first place it must be said that some particular sport, in which one needs to integrate the muscle mass will require an adequate intake of protein, are in fact just the proteins that contribute to the formation of muscle bundles. In addition, an athlete who trains at a competitive level , but not only, will not overtax your liver, already amply proved by toxins during physical activity, so fried food, liquor and chocolate, as well as some meats (bologna, salami etc.) will be adequately avoided.


After a workout we will have to spend about an ‘hour and a half to two, first to feed properly, even this is not recommended practice of physical fasting, you should try to eat a couple of hours earlier, in the case of meals main (lunch and dinner), while just less, for morning or afternoon snacks. If you eat, you should eat protein and vegetables, meat, fish and salad will be fine. Carbohydrates, taken together with other foods are digested more slowly, and if we eat only of the latter certainly not toil the liver. In relation to the type of sport practiced, the level and type of activity (swimming, football, weight lifting, tennis etc..) we will have to move towards different powers, including in relation to the gymnastic movement that you will accomplish: aerobic or anaerobic.

If you play sports, to get back in shape and burn fat, you should eat without introducing carbohydrates and sugar before doing sports , so prolonged exercise, will tend to make you burn the calories stored in body fat ( aerobic activity ) Conversely, if you need to feed your muscle mass and you are perfectly in line with a healthy weight, you should avoid to burn body fat (which maybe you have not), or even lose muscle mass, so you’ll replenish some substances, even during the ‘physical activity, especially during prolonged.

Finally, if you lose a lot of mineral salts during sports activities, maybe for the summer season and the excessive heat, or the type of physical activity (tennis, dance sport, running, breakdance, etc), you will rebalance the system water and salt, availing of the use of supplements and liquids, available in pharmacies or even in many supermarkets addition to these salt supplements, you will also find the appropriate protein supplements, or more less balanced and energetic, appropriate for some types of sports played at a certain level if you’re not a big sports, but you like to play a little ‘healthy activity, avoid large meals and foods difficult to digest and integrated losses saline.
