Health Tip: Getting Nutrition on the Go

What to eat before and after exercise

(HealthDay News) -- When you're traveling, especially for an athletic competition, you don't have to rely on fast food to fuel your body.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for what to eat:

  • Choose healthy carbohydrates with each meal to provide your body with extra energy lost during exercise.
  • Include a moderate amount of lean protein at each meal, to help your muscles recover after the workout.
  • Eat healthy fats with each meal to balance and replace energy.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
