General rules state that a break after a meal before exercise should be at least 2 hours. Especially when it comes to yoga, with its inverted postures and oriental dance (stomach meeting with liver bring you a thrill). The same applies to power loads.
Even two hours before exercise and abundant junk food is not welcome. But there are foods that are easily digested and are beneficial even before workouts.
Helen Barrett - yoga instructor, fitness instructor, pilates trainer, fitness fusion, instructor pre- and post generic fitness, advises 10 snacks that contain useful elements for our body, are easily digested and do make extra weight.
Products are mainly designed for women and not very intense weight training (yoga and Pilates), but men can take them on arms as snacks throughout the day.
Apples contain a lot of moisture, not a lot of sugar and a pretty good cope with the teeth cleaning. In addition, they contain vitamin C and fiber, which help you to hold out until the end of the occupation and thus will not create a feeling of heaviness in the abdomen.
A handful of almonds before classes on yoga will give you energy, which will help to hold out until the end of the lesson without feeling hunger. Almonds contains vitamin E, potassium and magnesium, which are added endurance. Desirably, the nuts were without any additives and salt.
Half cup of oatmeal, steamed on the water with light berries and the same almond help replenish your energy reserves and at the same time not to feel the fullness of the stomach into the classroom.
Most fitness trainers agree that most fruits are wonderful snack before exercise. Pears have a low acidity (it will not hurt the stomach) and contain a sufficient amount of fiber, which will help you not to feel hunger until the next meal. Add to this, potassium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, vitamins C, A and B5.
Cheese is an excellent source of natural sugar that will give you enough energy to practice in the absence of gravity in the stomach.
Bananas are enough calories and are therefore a good snack not only to yoga classes, but also to the more severe physical exertion. Potassium works in tandem with magnesium and helps the body to maintain water balance.
Another rich source of potassium - plum, 30 g contains 300 mg of potassium. They do not contain a lot of fiber and if you comply with the measure (a few pieces), they can become a pretty good snack before class and not make you run to the bathroom. I think everyone knows what happens when you eat a large amount of drain at a time?
8. Dried apricots (dried apricot)
Dried apricots, raisins and the like, is a rich source of natural sugar. Therefore, it is another good snack before classes of yoga, as only a few berries provide you have the necessary energy to the end of the occupation and do not create a feeling of heaviness and discomfort in the stomach.
Watermelon contains a lot of moisture, natural sugar and fiber and thus does not cause heaviness in the stomach. Since watermelon is a known diuretic, should not be abused before classes - otherwise crowded is not your stomach, and bladder. One or two small pieces will be enough.
10. Greek yogurt
Yogurt without any additives is a wonderful light meal before exercise, if you have no problems with portability and sour milk products. It can be added to the same oatmeal, and then you get an appetizer, which will provide you with the necessary energy and eliminates the feeling of hunger until the next meal.
All of these snacks are more suited for yoga. If you are going to weight training with heavy weight, the energy runs much faster.
Also, even with these products should comply with the measure, since the same nuts, bananas and dried fruit enough calories. On the other hand, they did not happen during the day, if you throw them in your bag just in case, if before a workout does not normally get a chance to dine. Then a few berries dried apricots, a handful of raisins or nuts save the situation.
Well, the video for those who are still thinking over whether to go to yoga classes;)
