What to eat, and not to eat before and after a workout?

When it comes to preparing for a gym workout or a long run outside, carbohydrates (both complex and simple) are your best bet as they both provide you energy. However, to get the most out of your workout, you need to eat the right carbs. Complex carbs, such as whole wheat pasta, whole wheat bread, rice, and vegetables, are high in fiber and minerals. Simple carbohydrates, such as cookies, pies, and cake, are broken down quickly by the body. If you think about it, complex carbs take longer for the body to break down and releases energy at a slower pace, which provides you with energy over a longer period of time. However, simple carbs will provide you with energy for a short period of time
