What to Eat Before an Early Morning Workout

Early morning workouts require energy so if you go to your workout with no food in you, your body will likely not perform as best as it can. Though you may not feel hungry, eat a carbohydrate based food like a whole granola bar, baggie of dry whole grain cereal, banana, protein bar, piece of toast with a slight smear peanut butter or even a small shake. This will wake your body up and get it ready to move!
