Plan to eat an hour or two before you exercise.

This will give your body enough time to digest the food to provide energy for your workout. Remember if you eat too much it can leave you feeling sluggish for your workout or to little may not give you the energy you need for a good workout.

A snack of a simple carbohydrate also works to raise your blood glucose level for an energy boost.
