High Energy Snacks




SNACKS for HIGH ENERGY :





Light snacks which are healthy come to your rescue when there's a need for energy at the end of a long worked day.
• Dry fruits
• Banana
• Low fat milkshake or smoothie
• Whole wheat crackers
• Baked beans on toast Whole wheat sandwich
• Cereal with low fat milk
• Aloo chaat
• Boiled corn

These snacks not only carry nutrition but also give you the energy boost before a workout. At the same time, they don't make you lethargic or sleepy if taken in small quantities. Don't forget to drink a glass of water 30 minutes before you begin your workout.

Avoid these foods before rigorous exercise:
• Fatty and fried foods-they take too long to digest
• Sweets-they take long to digest and cause rapid blood sugar changes
• Sugary drinks-they cause rapid energy swings and you might end up with less energy instead of more
• Caffeine-it stimulates the body to increase urine output
