Want to know what to eat for before and after your run? Here’s what we suggest:
EAT THIS BEFORE YOU RUN!
If you know you’ll run/walk at a fast pace for at least 40 minutes, fuel up with an easily digestible snack that’s low in fibre, protein and fat – think along the lines of a banana or rye toast with peanut butter.
HOW MUCH TO DRINK?
Sipping on water is best, although, for longer runs, energy drinks are a good source of electrolytes.
AFTER YOUR RUN
Within an hour of your run, grab a snack containing carbs to replace your fuel stores, protein for muscle repair and fluid to hydrate you. Our Peanut Butter Crunch Protein-Plus bar is the ideal post-workout snack!
YOUR DAILY DIET
Your daily diet can have a big impact on your run and the key here is variety – meals should include a mix of carbs, protein and healthy fats.
