Pre workout fall energy balls
October 30, 2017 - By Nautilus Plus
Do you ever run out of energy right before a workout? Does your energy level ever drop in the middle of a workout?
To avoid these situations, eat energy balls before hitting the gym! When planning to train in the next hour, your body needs carbohydrates and a limited amount of proteins and fat in order to feel energized and avoid gastrointestinal disconforts. More specifically, it is recommended to eat 30g to 45g of carbohydrates 1 hour before your workout or 15g to 30g of carbohydrates 30 minutes before your workout.

Number of portions: 10 energy balls
