You need energy to workout and the only way to get it is by having proper nutrients. Food is the only source for them. So have some cereal with skimmed milk before a workout. Other good options include a banana, oats, nuts, yogurt and smoothies. Don’t even think about French fries or other processed foods with lots of saturated fat. Avoid meat and other heavy meals.
