10 Best Pre Workout Meals to power up your workout

Whether you are working out in a gym or at home or park, it is crucial to have a proper pre-workout meal to give you energy. Your body needs fuel or energy to prevent any kind of muscle damage or stomach cramps. Eating the right amount of food and what food you are eating pre workout is extremely important because you can not just eat anything. Also, you should eat at least 30 minutes before the workout so that your body has time to digest the food properly.
Here is the list of low calories and high energy foods you should be eating pre workout:


Banana is one of the best pre-workout meal because it contains easily digestible carbohydrates that provide enough energy to the body for a workout. This superfood is also rich in potassium that helps in maintaining muscles. Eating banana is the morning is great as a pre-workout meal as it is a high power food.

Fruits with Yogurt:

Fruits with Yogurt is a great combo as a pre-workout meal. These are rich in carbohydrates and yogurt contains the high amount of protein and this combo gives your body full energy for a long workout.

Oats, a rich source of fiber is a great pre-workout meal. It does not cause any bloating and keep you full and energetic during your workout. It is also rich in Vitamin B and so helps in converting carbohydrates into energy.

One small or medium sized Apple with cheese will be enough to keep you up during the workout. Apple is rich in fiber and cheese contains protein so this combo is great to keep you full with fewer calories.

Dry Fruits:

Dry fruits are just pre-workout snacks. These tiny little dry fruits are packed with fiber and carbohydrates. You can even carry them with you in the gym and eat them during breaks. And the best part is they are easy to digest.

Boiled eggs:

Eggs are so rich in protein. If you are trying to build muscles, this is the perfect meal for you. Skip the yellow part and eat only the white one. This is your go-to meal if you are in a rush but make sure to eat them before 30-40 minutes of workout.
