What to Eat Before a Workout on a Keto Diet

Keto Workout

When you are on the keto diet, it can be hard to maintain a quality workout. It’s a normal side effect to feel tired while on the keto diet, especially early on, so it’s important to watch what you eat prior to a workout. With your body relying on fat as the main source of energy, it’s important to get the right type of food in before a workout.

Keto-Friendly Protein Bars

It’s important to get protein into your body before you work out. The amino acids from the protein allows the muscles to perform and repair themselves during a workout. It also plays an important role in building muscle. The easiest way to get protein is by eating keto-friendly protein bar. You can either buy keto-friendly protein bars off the shelves or make your own.

Protein Shake

Protein shake is another easy way to get protein into your body. Many of you, especially those who work out consistently, may have already been drinking protein shake to a certain degree. It’s important, however, to not use any protein powder. You need to specifically look for protein powders that are low in carb content. Whey protein isolate, for example, is one of the purest forms of protein you can purchase. It also contains very few carbohydrates per scoop so it’s a good fit for people on the keto diet.

Snacks or Meals Rich in Fat

We also encourage you to eat snacks or meals (if your body allows) that are rich in fat prior to a workout. For these specific situations, some people like to make snacks called fat bombs ahead of time. Fat bombs works like an energy booster and a lot of people on the keto diet like to make them. They can be made both sweet or savory. If you don’t want to make fat bombs then there are plenty of healthy fat alternatives like avocados, nuts, and flax seeds.
