You’ve been working out. You’ve been running, exercising, taking fitness classes or hitting the weights. So why isn’t your weight dropping?
Did you know that one of most important ways to lose weight is to eat first?
If you eat before you strength train, you will actually burn more calories, says Dr. Susan Mitchell.
Dr. Mitchell has been featured on the Today show, CNN and the Food Network. She is the host of popular podcast, Straight Talk about Eating Smart, and she’s Growing Bolder’s registered dietician and nutrition expert.
She explains how the right balance of carbs, protein, fat and fiber impacts how you workout and how your body reacts to the exercise.
Plus, find out how much protein you should be consuming each day — it’s a lot more than you think.
And she shares ideas for pre- and post-workout snacks that will fuel your body.
