A proper and healthy diet is a must with a full swing work out to get the desired results. Utopia Life Coach has come up with some foods that you should avoid before a workout.
Vegetable sprouts, broccoli or cauliflower, are high fiber-filled foods that are needed for your body but not just before a workout. These vegetables are high in raffinose which is hard to digest and can trigger abdominal bloating and excessive gas.
It is not a good choice for hydration. In fact, It is both a poor and the worst choice if you are grabbing a fizzy drink just before a workout as it is high in sugar content and carbonate which will make you feel bloated and cause stomach cramps and nausea.
Spicy foods may be good for your taste buds but may not be good for you if you eat them just before your workout. It may stimulate the digestive system and may cause heartburn. It can even increase your cramps. It will not only leave you in pain but will also make you abandon your workout.
Skipping it before a workout will be the best idea as it contains high fat and it will make you feel uncomfortable and tired even before you start your workout.
A piece of advice, it is necessary to keep a check on your diet and to avoid certain foods but it is not even recommended to start a workout being hungry as your body needs nutrients to function.
These are some of the worst things to eat or drink before a workout.
