2. Energy Bars
Yes, you read it correctly that energy bars should not be eaten after a workout. Energy bars are totally beneficial before exercise, as it is a great pre-workout snack and increase your energy levels. Most energy bars contain high fructose corn syrup and refined white sugar which is more nutritionally sound than a candy bar. You can actually get more protein from a whole food source like bananas, eggs, and berries with a handful of nuts can be a good option than processed packaged bars.
