You know you have to workout today; you have set time aside and made a careful plan. You are going to give it your all; you want to make sure it really counts. Yet one or two things you may have done throughout the day can totally RUIN your workout and halt your weightloss.
Grabbing that chocolate bar or cookie before a workout may seem like a good idea, an extra burst of energy right? Wrong! Eating refined sugars causes a rapid spike in your insulin levels, leaving your body screaming for more. Unless you keep feeding your body sugar you WILL crash and burn, and then ultimately the excess sugar your body can’t process will get stored as fat. If you want a quick burst of energy go for a banana, as they contain no added or refined sugars.
