Pre workout & exercise nutrition

You need to eat something that helps you:
Sustain Energy   Boost Performance   Hydrate  
Preserve Muscle & Tone    Speed Recovery.

Protein
Eating some protein in the period before exercise helps you maintain toning or increase muscle size. This is important for anyone who wants to improve health, body composition, or performance. The less damage is done to your muscles, the faster you recover, and the better you adapt to your exercise over the long term. Protein floods your bloodstream with amino acids just when your body needs them most. This boosts your muscle-building capabilities - so not only are you preventing damage, you are increasing muscle or tone.

Carbohydrate
This fuels your training, in particular high intensity performance, and helps with recovery. So make sure that you have some carbohydrate in your system. It also helps preserve muscle and liver glycogen which tells your brain that you are well fed, and helps increase muscle and tone retention and growth. Finally it stimulates the release of insulin - when combined with protein, this improves protein synthesis and prevents protein breakdown. 

Fats
Not so important, but they do help to slow digestion, which maintains blood glucose and insulin levels and keeps you on an even keel. They also provide some vitamins and minerals, which are important in everyone’s diet.
