Healthy Foods That Might Ruin Your Workout

Not all healthy foods are good to eat before you hit the gym.

A lot of foods can actually slow you down in a variety of ways which prevents you from getting the workout you really want and need. Since we don’t want anything slowing you down we decided to share some of these workout saboteurs with you.

1. Flaxseed – It’s good for you but the high fiber can cause gas and bloating which will definitely slow down your workout.

2. Hummus – Great snack to have AFTER your workout. It takes a while to settle and will definitely slow you down if it’s bouncing around in your stomach.

3. Dairy – Again, it’s a great food to have after your workout. Having it up to two hours before you hit the gym is sure to kill your workout.

4. Salty Snacks – Nuts are great sources of protein but anything with high levels of salt can throw off your fluid-balance which is essential for better workouts.

5. Hard Boiled Eggs – They are a great source of protein but they don’t offer any immediate energy. They also take some time to digest and will stay in your stomach during your entire workout.
