Eat fast carbs an hour before class, have a hearty lunch three hours in advance, or not eat at all? Scientists have found that it will not harm the body.
Some studies have shown that exercising on an empty stomach causes us to burn stored carbohydrates and you lose weight faster. Low glycol levels will speed up fat burning, but lead to muscle loss. In addition, hunger during exercise can lead to dizziness, weakness, and nausea.
When to eat before exercise so as not to injure the body?
It directly depends on your metabolic rate. As a rule, you need to eat two hours before your workout - the digestion process will be smooth, and there will be no heaviness in the stomach.
If you can't eat in 2 hours, grab a small snack before exercising. The body, having received "fuel", will cope better with the loads and get tired less.
What you can't eat and what you can?
Fatty dairy products are not recommended (we wrote about other foods to avoid before training here). A snack high in protein and carbohydrates, on the other hand, comes in handy: granola, energy bar, boiled egg, or nuts.
What else do you need to remember?
Drink plenty of water: Scientists advise drinking two glasses of water a few hours before training and another glass 20 minutes before starting.
