What is a pre-workout meal you may ask? Well if you’re trying to reduce body fat and tone up then you would ideally be restricting the amount of High GI Carb’s you are consuming before any physical activity. High GI Carb’s are best consumed after physical activity such as a tough session in the gym, game of squash or even a few hours of gardening.
