My list of key foods which I consume include:
- Pasta. Wholemeal Bread. Tuna. I also make sure I have some form of caffeine before I work out. Usually it's a coffee. This gives me the extra energy to push myself when I'm at the gym.
- During workout I consume a lot of water. I drink the most water out of everyone at the gym. Water is essential to maintaining high energy levels and it's also essential during recovery.
- Post Work Out: This is my large meal. And I try to have this around 1 hour before I work out. Closer to finishing the workout is ideal. Usually specialist advise to eat within 30 minutes of a workout. Also remember to consume water and protein shakes during this time.
