Springtime finds many Mississippians breaking out of their hibernation and
hitting the gym and pavement to get ready for the poolside days of summer.
While exercise is undoubtedly the more taxing part of the get-healthy
equation, if you aren't fueling your body properly, your hard-earned sweat could
be for naught. Go! spoke with two experts on what to eat before and after your
workouts: Dr. Ben Carr, assistant professor of sports medicine at Belhaven
University, and Paul Lacoste, local fitness guru.
Carr and Lacoste have helped Go! put together a list of foods to eat pre- and
post-workout. Of course, you should always consult a physician if you are
considering any major dietary or exercise changes.
