How should you fuel your body for a morning workout?
A low-intensity morning workout — such as a walk, bike ride, yoga or round of golf — requires very little fuel. Concentrate on hydration and a small carbohydrate-rich snack, such as 16 ounces of water and a mini-bagel or a 100-calorie granola bar. That will give you enough energy to compensate for an overnight fast without loading up on calories. For a higher intensity workout using an electrolyte option (love the Shaklee Hydrate +) with a carbohydrate like a snack bar is the perfect way to get natural fuel.
After your workout, eat a smart breakfast of quality carbohydrates and protein. This can be a hard-cooked egg, a slice of whole-grain toast and 100-percent fruit juice, or oatmeal with berries and your choice of milk. Personally, I love the recovery benefits of the Shaklee 100% grass fed whey Build mixed with the Shaklee Life Shake meal replacement. The perfect low glycemic, leucine packed for muscle preservation and balanced carb/protein/fat combo.
