Should I eat before or after a spin class? Eat a small, light meal roughly an hour to two hours before your class to fuel your body. It’s also good practice to eat after your spin class to refuel your body again.
How long before spin should you eat? It’s best to eat 30 minutes before you workout. That will give you enough time to digest, and for the carbs to be absorbed into your bloodstream. As for what to avoid before your workout, stay away from foods with a lot of fat, refined sugars, high in fiber and high in protein.
What should I eat while spinning?
- Greek yogurt.
- Whole-wheat crackers and almond butter.
- Scrambled eggs on whole-wheat toast.
- Oatmeal topped with nuts.
- A banana.
- A nut-milk protein smoothie.
What should I eat after spinning? Meal idea: lean protein such as eggs, chicken, tuna or tofu along with complex carbs such as whole grain pasta, rice, or sweet potato and some fat – try avocado. However, says Simpson, to really speed up recovery there is some evidence that it’s better to eat little and often.
