Exercise And Eating

July 31, 2014, 6:19 PM by Brittany Larson

Exercise And Eating

Whether you're working out to lose weight or just to maintain a healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise are keys to success.

But what you put in is as important as what you get out.

My mom and my dad fed us really good meals and limited sweets so I guess it's just something I have been brought up with and it just kind of stuck.

Kimberly Keller works out regularly at the Sanford Wellness Center.

"I work out every day. I do like a personal training group," Kimberly Keller said.

But before she starts burning calories it's important for her to consume some.

"I think it's really important to make sure you eat before you work out because you need to make sure you get your metabolism revved in the morning especially with a breakfast before you work out. During the day I try to watch what I eat, a lot of protein just so all your work doesn't go to waste," Kimberly Keller said.

It's important that you are eating the right foods that will give you enough energy to work out rather than eating whatever you want because you worked out.

"It's diet and exercise so a half hour of exercise isn't going to burn off three pieces of pie or a whole pizza so you can really out eat any exercise program so you really have to look at both," Clinical dietician, Jocelyn Johnson said.

Johnson says not to skip any meals, especially breakfast.

"What you eat before can affect how long you work out and how intense you can work out so it's good to have a mix of complex carbohydrates so like whole wheat bread with some simple carbohydrates like a piece of fruit because then you are going have a steady release of energy throughout your whole work out," Johnson said.

When you fuel your body with healthy foods, it will help maximize your work out and your results.

"Men probably do more strength training so they focus more on protein but protein is actually more important after you exercise to help with the muscle recovery," Johnson said.

And another tip may surprise you.

"The easiest thing you can do after you work out is have a glass of chocolate milk. It has protein it has carbohydrates and it has the electrolytes like sodium and potassium which you lose through sweat," Johnson said. 

Johnson says it's best to wait at least an hour or two after you eat to work out, especially if you have something that's high in fiber.

That will give your body enough time to digest.
