If you are struggling to lose weight and getting fit, you need to take a look at your fitness plan. You may be exercising but not eating well, or you may be eating well but you are not exercising well. Hence, both the things play an important role in healthy weight loss.

Let us have a look at some workout nutrition tips:

The nutrient proteins are extremely important before your workout. When you do weight training exercises, like lifting weight, they create small tears in our muscle fibers. Adequate proteins help in muscle recovery and tissue repair. When you rest, your body repairs those tears, building up your muscles and strengthens them. Therefore, include good sources of protein in your diet like eggs, milk, nuts, legumes, fish or chicken.

Carbohydrates are considered to provide energy to the body. They help help break down the food into glucose, enter our muscle cells, and give us fuel to exercise at our maximum capacity. Eating healthy carbs like cheese, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and milk right before you exercise ensures that you will have extra glucose if you need it to replenish those glycogen stores. If you feel weak, tired, and inactive you can eat simple carbohydrates. These get digested fast and provide energy to your body. Moreover, proteins can perform the body's function smoothly only if you consume a balanced amount of carbs as well.

You must not ignore this! You must ensure that your body is well hydrated before you head to the gym. You should start drinking enough water a few hours before exercise and adequate water even before working out. The primary goal should be to minimize dehydration which can cause cramps, low energy or even spasms. You should try to stay hydrated throughout your workout. Other fluids like home-made protein shakes, milk, smoothies and juices can be beneficial.

These nutrients along with regular physical activity can help in quick and healthy weight loss!
