Get your protein on! Especially before a workout to boost your metabolism and calorie burn. So before you spend 20-60 minutes busting your booty lifting weights or getting your cardio fix, high-protein snacks are recommended.
It’s not new news that a strength training session revs your body’s calorie burn for hours. You can use elastic bands, free weights, or your own body as resistance. Awesome! But why does my body burn more? Your body is working overtime to rebuild muscle broken down during your workout. So that means a little extra protein from high-protein snacks may encourage your body to work even harder. Protein may help you to have a more powerful workout which means you will burn extra calories. Consider a pre-workout, high protein snack,such as a slice of low-fat cheese, a hard-boiled egg, or a few ounces of Greek yogurt.
