Fitness Tip: "It’s important to eat prior to your workout. Eating before your workout will help keep blood sugars stable, increase performance and in the long-term this boosts your metabolism. I always suggest eating something 30-60minutes prior to your workout. Here are some general guidelines in choosing a pre-workout food:

*Choose something with no more than 300 calories
*Your snack should be low in fat and fiber
*Be sure to get in some complex carbohydrates
*You should get in a moderate amount of protein pre-workout
*Keep the simple sugars content low
