By: Jesse Miller

If you are into a weight loss program or you are just into a diet program to shape up your body, the choices of food that you eat is one of the controlling factors that definitely affects the way you respond to your fitness program. While the food is the source of those fats and calories that you try and is eager and determined to burn, the foods that you eat are so vital also to provide the body with the kind of nourishment that it needs in order to maintain its regular functions. Hence, here are some tips on how to eat proper foods and get a great workout.

1. The morning workout diet - If you are the type of person who loves to do the workout at day time, you need to make sure that you eat enough to give you the energy you need to do the workout routine. Remember that by the time you wake up, you have not eaten for at least 10 hours, and hence, you need to take in something for your breakfast. Nevertheless, do not start the workout routines if you have not digested yet the food in order to avoid a side stitch or nausea. For a workout plan of around an hour, you need at least 200 to 300 calories. Your diet should consist of simple sugars and juices so that it can be easily digested or try to eat raisins, bananas, a high carb beverage, a sandwich with peanut butter, a granola bar or bagels. Then try to avoid fat or protein food for your early morning workout diet.

2. Mid noon workout diet - If you like noon workout, then try out this particular diet plan. For at least one or two hours of noon workout, you need at least 300 to 400 calories. As mentioned earlier, you need to avoid high fat or high protein diet and try to have at least 20 percent protein, 20 percent fat and 60 percent carbohydrate diet. The sources may be in form of yogurts, fruits, meal replacement shakes or bars, oatmeal or yogurt mixed with fruits.

3. Evening workout diet - If you are the person who loves to workout after a stressful day of work then probably you plan to spend at least two to three hours of workout. For this time, you need at least 400 to 500 calories of a balanced meal. Sources may be in the form of cheese, crackers, vegetables and fruits and just make a combination of these foods for your meal. Since you would be working out after you eat, then you need not worry about eating before your bed time. This is because you have enough activities to burn those calories that you take in. Likewise, you spend around 8 hours of sleep the least, and hence, the same can still be digested by your system after an after work workout.

For your entire workout, just try to maintain a balance of your carbohydrates, protein and fat intake and try to keep it at the percentage of 60, 20 and 20.
