The One Food You Need To Fuel Your Workout | One Green Planet

Protein is the least effective source of energy to perform the workout, but the most important component in recovery (so save the protein shake for later). Now, free back to carbohydrates. A single banana has over a whopping 26 grams of carbs making it one high energy fruit. Not to mention, for only 105 calories in a medium-sized banana, theres 10 percent of the daily recommendation for fiber, almost 15 percent of the daily recommendation for potassium, 17 percent of the daily requirement for vitamin C, and a whole 22 percent of the daily requirement for vitamin B6. B6 is especially important for a powerful workout; this vitamin helps carry oxygen throughout the body to support top performance. Also, the banana is such a great choice because it can be used as immediate fuel. You can eat one a Max Workout half an hour or even 15 minutes before a workout since bananas are easy on the stomach and digest smoothly.
