What to Eat Before a Morning Workout

What and When to Eat Before Your Morning Workouts

A post shared by Sam Frohlich (@sam_xceedfit) on

If you work out in the morning (kudos to you), you know the importance of fueling properly before heading to the gym. The timing and content of your meals can get a little tricky — you want to have enough energy, but you don't want to feel too full during strenuous training. To give you a helpful guideline, online fitness coach Sam Frohlich shared three options on Instagram for you to choose from:

Option 1: A full meal (eggs and toast, oatmeal, etc.) 60 to 90 minutes before your workout.
Option 2: A quick snack (protein bar or banana) 20 to 40 minutes before.
Option 3: Liquid (coffee or protein shake).

Of course, it all comes down to personal preference. Finding out which option and time frame works best for you will require some trial and error on your own, but the most important thing is that you have enough energy for your workouts.
