1. Granola or Protein Bars
These might seem like a good idea before you hit the gym, but there’s no clear definition of what they really are. Check the labels — both kinds can have lots of sugar. If they do, your body will burn through that fast, and you may not get much else.
2. High-Fiber Vegetables
Your body needs fiber, but not before a workout. Vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, or cauliflower can be hard to digest and could make exercising uncomfortable. Stick with veggies that are easier on your system, like well-cooked asparagus or potatoes.
