What to Eat Before a Workout or After a Workout
It’s important to stay hydrated. Keep the fluids flowing before you decide to hit the gym. And those fluids need to be water, or an electrolyte drink that’s part of your overall plan. Beer and wine is not the best pre-workout choice. After a workout you want to try and consume something within an hour (if possible). If you want to build muscle, concentrate on proteins after working out. If you want to build endurance, focus on carbohydrates after a cardio-intense workout.
It also depends on your overall health and nutrition. Eating correctly before or after the gym doesn’t matter if you slam a case of beer later. Figure out your goals. Next discover some foods you enjoy that contain the nutrients you need based on your fitness goals. Finally keep the practice. With routine you will get there.
