What's a Good Pre-Workout Snack? Q&A of The Week

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X Program (FX12).  This week's question was sent in via my Facebook and is regarding a pre-workout snack or meal.

Hey Coach,
I've recently started your program and I'm having a hard time with a pre-workout meal or snack to get me through the workout.  What's a good pre-workout snack?
Thanks,
Todd

Todd, I've had good success with having a small snack about an hour before my workout.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Peanut butter and jelly on one slice of whole wheat toast
Fruit and a handful of mixed nuts
Protein smoothie 
Small chicken breast sandwich with avocado

The key to a pre-workout snack is to eat something packed with nutrition, especially with at least some protein.  You also want something light, so that it digests before you actually begin your workout.  There's nothing worse than doing a tough workout with a full stomach.
