There are many people who workout on an empty--or nearly empty--stomach because they believe that their body will burn more fat, or that they will have to exercise longer to burn off the calories they've just consumed. But, did you know that the foods you consume before and after you exercise have a significant effect on your workout?

After the winter, we often enter spring with a new, but familiar resolution: We are going to get in shape before the summer. If that goal has not been reached—which for many is the case—we promise to get the ball rolling once summer starts. Well, summer is here and there are still many who have not shed the pounds they gained over the holidays and cold winter months.

Take a deep breath, because bathing suit season is here! During the time it took you to inhale, hold that breath and expel it, you may have been hit with the reality that summer is really in full affect. If you didn't take the time to workout over the winter and spring months, you may be dreading this summer season because it probably means you pulled out all your clothes from last summer and found out what you already knew--they don't fit.

We tend to consume more fatty foods and carbohydrates during the winter. Part of the reason is that these foods have a lot of the calories we need to keep us warm during cold temperatures; the other reason is that it just feels good to eat them.

Starchy foods, like potatoes, help you release a brain chemical called serotonin. Serotonin moderates your mood and keeps you from reenacting the bathroom scene from "The Shining" when cabin fever hits after three solid...
