Do you guys know how much PROTEIN is in your food?! I thought it would be wise to show the recommended serving size along with the calories so that there'd be some type of an even playing field here. Also be aware that just because a food shows up lower than another food on this chart, it does not mean it is "unhealthy" or that you should avoid it like the plague. All foods are created to bring us all sorts of different nutrients.
Pre-Workout meal – when and how much? Depending on how much time you have, it’s ideal to have a pre-workout meal about 2 hours before exercise that contains ~300 to 500 calories, OR have a smaller meal/snack with less calories, 30 to 60 minutes before you train. Pre-workout meals will vary from person to person because some people take a longer time to digest certain foods. It’s best to listen to your body and notice how you feel after you eat.
Post-Workout Nutrition – how long do I wait? Consuming a post-workout meal within 2 hours of your gym session will give your body what it needs to repair, grow and build strength for future performance. Ultimately, the timing of your post-workout meal/snack will depend on how hungry you are and how much you ate before your workout. Just like pre-workout meals, post-workout nutrition also depends on what type of training you did and its intensity.
