Hello, dear viewer, and thank you for visiting my blog! I am a dedicated (and certified) Food Coach and Personal Trainer with a very individual attitude to coaching. I search to look beyond people's health issues and modify their lifestyles so that they can live a healthier life, increase vitality and longevity. Recently as a strong believer in natural healing I have published two books on Ayurveda and how to use Ayurveda lifestyle and food at home. Further, I am very much into TCM and the concept of original Chinese Food, especially after my recent stay in China. I am striving to become a Yoga expert through intense training and am practicing some kind of exercise every single day. My second blog http://thrumyeyes-kat.blogspot.com/ is dedicated to my passion to capture the world with my camera and create my own world like that. Everything you will find on these pages about nutrition and exercising is authentic and self-tested. Enjoy and don't forget to send me your comments, which are always welcome in my attempt to meet your expectations even better!

What to eat before my workout

In order to be able to perform in the desired manner and to be able to persist until you have reached the desired goal have a light snack 1-2 hours prior to your training. The choice of your snack also depends on whether you are going to give your muscles a good workout or whether it is cardio you are looking for. For body toning keep your snack more on the protein side, whereas cardio asks for a good base of carbohydrates.

Have for example mixed fresh fruits, a smoothie, yogurt with some cereals and fruit, dried apricots plus dates and some nuts, a banana (always a simple, efficient choice) or if nothing else is within your reach go for some low fat, wholegrain biscuits. 

Have a great workout!
