Can anybody recommends me the food or fruits or anythings which would help me in my workout before work out and after work out??

I am doing body building at the gym.

Usually before half an hour i eat 1 packet of biscuits with milk and after half an hour i go to the gym.

I go to the gym at 8 30 pm and comes from gym around 9 45 pm and then after 1 hour i eat my dinner.

So is this a good routine or bad??

Can anybody recommends me whether i am doing wrong or right??

  • It depends... What are your goals? What is your overall daily nutrition plan? What train routine are you following? What is your TDEE? – joao Aug 8 '15 at 12:24

    A pack of biscuits probably isn't a top tier nutrition choice. – Eric Aug 8 '15 at 16:46
  • @joao:My goal is to build a medium body not a bulky body.My overall nutrition plan is in the morning i eat some grams with 2 chapatis containing jam with milk and in the lunch i eat 4 chapatis and in the night i am planning to skip dinner and just eat 2 bananas only.I dont eat rice in my lunch.So can you tell me the mistake in my daily plan if you think that something is wrong – Learning-Overthinker-Confused Aug 10 '15 at 3:46

    According to Wikipedia and Google, Chapatis is a form of bread. It's carb and it's certainly in the same category as rice. Carbs won't make you big; they'll make you gain fat though, unless you burn them a lot. But more importantly, you need protein for growth. You need veggies for the essential minerals and vitamins that your body needs. Your current food intake doesn't seem to be providing you these essential nutrients. – Kneel-Before-ZOD Aug 11 '15 at 11:34

    Rather than giving you specific protein meals, I'd rather you use Google and visit your local grocery stores. There are protein items for meat lovers, vegans, and vegetarians alike. You have a lot of local resources; use them. – Kneel-Before-ZOD Aug 12 '15 at 11:40

Before the workout it is not very recommended for it to be something heavy. It should be a light snack 30-60 minutes before the workout. I got here two videos with good examples of things you can eat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vVY0wZdrHU

So mostly complex-carbs to give the needed energy to the body, try to avoid simple carbs as they will give you a short boost followed by a fall in energy mid-workout. I usually try to schedule my workout with my supper so you won't have to eat another meal in order to give the body its needs. It should be about 30-60 minutes after workout and should contain proteins to help the muscles recover and complex carbs as well to give it some energy again. Try also to drink a lot of water in overall and try not to eat big meals before the workout cause it will make your body focus on digesting and training at the same time which will be much harder.
