Week 4: What to eat before
exercising? Did you know that it is important to energize yourself by eating well
before playing sports, or going for a run? Carbohydrates are the most important
type of nutrient that someone need for energy before a game. You can get these
by eating fruits, vegetables grains such as pasta, spaghetti, or breads. Avoid
food containing high levels of sugar before a game, such as candy bars or pop.It is good to eat a meal with lots of energy and carbohydrates 2-3 hours
before being active. This gives the food time to digest and prevents stomach
What to drink when exercising? Water? Sport drinks? Electrolyte gels? Energy drinks? The choices you have in store are endless but which one are really worth it? Water is always a good choice. Water contains no calorie, no sugar, no additive, etc. Your body always needs water, even when you are not exercising. To be more environmental friendly, use a refillable water bottle. Sport drinks like Gatorade or PowerAde are a mix of water, sugar, flavor and electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium).
