      Carbohydrates are a very important part of a successful workout.

    Before your workout:
      Make sure you have eaten one hour prior to your workout.This doesn't mean a big complete meal, nor does it mean eating a sandwich or bagel 10 minutes before you start. It is recommended that you consume a couple hundred calories of complex carbohydrates, such as a bagel, or a couple pieces of fruit one hour before you workout. Protein is also recommended if you expect a long workout.

    During your workout:
      You will not need any food during your workout only if you find that you are totally hungry and feel weak. Consume lots of water before , during and after you workout. Sports drinks with glucose polymers(that assure you proper fluid replacement and energy)such as Ultra Fuel, and Hydra Fuel by Twinlab, Gatorade or any other drinks of the same are very beneficial to having a successful workout. Be aware that some of these drinks are very high in calories.

    After your workout:
      Make sure you eat within an hour after your workout. Especially carbohydrates.You will also have to combine protein, vitamins, minerals and a little bit of fat to assure your replenishing your body with the proper nutrients it lost through your workout.
