When planning to do a cardio workout, your pre-exercise meal should be low in fat and sugar, moderate in protein and high in carbs approximately 60 to 90 minutes before you start. Some examples may include a smoothie made with almond milk, banana and berries. After completing your cardio workout, its important to replenish your body with carbs and protein about 20 to 30 minutes after your workout. Some examples may include a cup of chocolate milk, whey protein shake or a hard-boiled egg.

In addition, before doing strength training, eat a balanced meal with carbs and protein an hour or two before you start your strength training session. Be sure to drink plenty of water or enjoy a cold sports drink before, during and after the session. Remember, after your strength training session is complete, concentrate on eating or drinking protein for repairing your muscles just like cardio.
