7 Pre Workout Meal Options to Lose Fat and Gain Muscle

Hello friends!
Welcome to Fit Tuber.
Pre-workout meal.
A pre-workout meal will not only help you
maximize your performance while you are working out
but it will also minimize your muscle
damage.
A pre-workout meal can be taken 1.5-2.5 hours
before workout depending upon the metabolism
of the individual.
This is because you want to make sure that
the food is digested before you start working out.

A pre-workout meal should majorly consist
of carbohydrates.
Preferably complex carbohydrates because they
provide you energy for a longer period of time.

And then you also need some amount of protein.
This is because while you workout, your muscle
fiber get damaged and protein constantly helps
repair them.
Let me share with you some of the pre-workout
meal options that will help you lose fat and gain muscle.
This in my opinion is one of the best pre-workout
meal options as chickpeas are naturally high
in complex carbohydrates, moderate in proteins
and low in fats.
This is exactly what we need before a workout.
It can be cooked in bulk so it’s easy to prepare.
You can even use black chana instead of chickpeas.

Now orange is considered to be one the best
foods to be taken before a workout.
It keeps our body hydrated.
Oats as we know is a great source of complex
carbohydrates and it also has B vitamins which
help convert carbohydrates into energy.
Adding a few egg whites to this meal makes
it perfect.
Banana has potassium, roti has complex carbohydrates
and peanut butter has protein.
It also has healthy fat so make sure to have
it well before 2 hours.
This is because you would not like blood flowing
more towards your stomach than muscles while
you are working out.
Avoid using brown breads as they have maida
mixed in it.
Another easy and effective pre workout meal
option could be 3-4 scrambled egg whites along
with 1 whole wheat roti.
Natural oats, low fat yogurt and your favourite
fruits.
Well, that’s all you need to make a pre-workout
meal.
Now, that’s simple. Isn’t it?

Now people who prefer drinking over eating
will love this spinach banana oat smoothie.
Not only does it look great but it also tastes
delicious.
Surely makes a great pre-workout meal option.
If you are too busy to make any of the discussed
recipes then I will suggest you to buy roasted
chickpeas.

Friends!
Now that you have taken this pre-workout meal
around 2 hours before workout, if you want
you can have a cup of green tea or black coffee
just 15-20 minutes before workout.
This is to get the extra caffeine kick however
it is completely optional.
So friends I hope you found this video helpful.

options.
