I love good food.
That probably is no shock to those who know me.
But I can’t always eat what I want, when I want. Especially if I am teaching Pilates classes. If you think it is hard exercising on a full stomach, try teaching all day that way!
But there are good foods to eat before working out (in moderation of course) — and foods that will maximize the benefits of your workout to eat when you are done.
Todd McCullough, founder of TMAC Fitness in California, offers some good suggestions for fueling up before a workout and replenishing afterward. Read all about it right here.
McCullough’s philosophy on eating is kind of interesting, too: “If I can plant it, pick it or catch it, then I can eat it. If not, then I stay away.”
What do you think about that?
