Your pre-workout food intake sounds text book perfect. If you are
trying to lose weight you NEVER should be concerned what fuel your body is using
during your exercise sessions.
Burning fat and losing weight is all about eating a balanced healthy diet
with 3-6 small meals/snacks evenly spread throughout the day and plenty of water
If you exercise 1 hour a day for 7 days a week that is 7 hours. There
is 168 hours in a week. This means even if you exercise for 7 hours a week
you are exercising 4% of your time.
Focus on your diet during the other 161 hours in the week. Having a
proper amount of food before your workout will allow you to workout with the
necessary intensity to boost your metabolism and help you tone up and lose
How much and what you eat before your workouts depends on the individual.
The time usually ranges from 3 hours to 1 hour before your workout.
Working out with a full stomach is not good either but your small toast and
peanut butter an hour before you workout should allow you to get through your
workouts at full intensity without a crash.
Don't forget to immediately refuel your body after you workout with a quality
low fat, carbohydrate and protein source as well. Workout hard, eat right
and the pounds will fly off when you watch TV, take care of your kids and sleep.
