Re: Setting up a healthy diet - where to start?
to keep your body energized through the day you need to eat smaller portions but more of them during the day. I usally eat 6 meals during the day, Example 8am, 10am, 12pm, 3pm, 5pm, 9pm. Each meal has aprox 500 calories for my diet, but yours will be different based on what your goals are, and what your body size is. As for eating before your workout, try eating a small meal 300-500 calories a good hour before your workout starts. Its essential that you eat after your workout also, your muscles are starving for carbs and protien. This helps your body recover faster. Eating a meal late wont hurt you and its not going to make you fat, becuase most of what you will take in late will go into muscle repair.
