Take away points:
Simple vs. Complex
Pre-Workout Consumption (1-2 Hours Before):
whole grain bread
whole grain pasta
2 8-Ounce glasses of water
Post-Workout Consumption (Within 1 Hour After):
whey protein powder
1 8-Ounce glass of water per 1 lb weight loss
*** Ideally, both pre and post workout you should aim to consume complex carbohydrates AND lean protein. However, if that's not possible (due to time, travel, etc.)--- the focus pre wokout should be on complex carbohydrates and the focus post workout should be on lean protein!
During Workout Consumption (ONLY for extreme cardio and extended workouts!):
Fruits such as bananas, apples, etc.
Electrolyte Replacements (Use with CAUTION--- I use NUUN!)
Water, water, water!
