Gold’s People, You Better Not Eat and Drink These Before Going to The Gym!

February 28, 2022

Eating before gym time is a must! If you go with an empty stomach, it can give you a bad impact on your body. But do you know that not all types of food are good to eat before start exercising? These are some foods that you should avoid eating before exercising!


Some people think that it will be good and healthy to eat a bowl of salad before working out. The fact is that’s a wrong perception about it. The content of raffinose or carbohydrates that are difficult to digest will trigger bloating due to excessive gas so it can slow down the digestive process. This will actually give you an uncomfortable feeling in your stomach. 

Spicy Food

Eating spicy food sometimes makes you feel happy and energized, but it’s totally a different story if you eat it before you exercise. Eating spicy food, especially something with a level of spiciness that exceeds your ability, will leave your stomach uncomfortable. In addition, spicy food can also trigger muscle cramps.

Soft Drinks

Carbon dioxide in soft drinks that you take before exercising will get you bloated and its high sugar level will make you lose energy faster than it should be.

Energy Drinks

Actually, you don’t have to skip all types of energy drinks. You can choose energy drinks that contain carbohydrates, electrolytes, and minerals that can help you restore body fluids that have been lost.

Many food and drinks may look common and safe for consumption, the fact is they can have a bad impact on your body if you consume them before working out. That is why it is so important to know the content of what will you consume to improve your exercise quality. You can also discuss what you can and shouldn’t do before, during, and after exercising with your Personal Trainer at Gold’s Gym. Do this in order to maintain safety and achieve the goals that you set at the beginning of your workout journey.
