Don't Eat Within the Hour Before

You should always give yourself at least an hour between eating and working out. Flores explains, "There's this idea out there that eating before a workout helps fuel performance. But what can happen is that you may overeat and be digesting a meal which can cause nausea and decreased performance. Eat your best meal post workout, especially protein and good carbs like sweet potatoes or quinoa."
