Hello everyone. I am hitting gym at morning and I am taking 5 boiled egg whites with 500ml milk as post workout meal but I am baffled about pre workout meal, currently I am using 2 bananas. Please suggest me a PRE WORKOUT MEAL FOR MAXIMUM MUSCLE GROWTH.

Hye. Thanks for the query. Plan on eating 30 minutes to two hours before working out, depending the time of workout and on how large a meal you have. This is important because you want the energy from the meal you just ate without it sitting heavy in your stomach while you are working out. A high-carbohydrate, low-fat meal that has a moderate amount of protein is easy to digest and will help you maintain your blood sugar. Examples of a great pre-workout meal include potato/ fruit, an egg whites and a piece or a fruit smoothie or a fruit yoghurt which has just the right amount of carbohydrates and protein.
