On the South Beach Diet, we strongly encourage snacking at least twice a day, and this is especially beneficial before or after a workout. Snacking before exercise energizes you and fuels your workouts, and a post-workout snack can help repair muscle tissues and replenish nutrients lost during exercise. Studies show that protein-rich foods paired with complex carbohydrates are best for both pre- and post-workouts. We've put together a delicious selection of snacks to enjoy before or after exercise. And if you're strapped for time, take along one of our energizing South Beach Diet Snack, Protein Fit, or Good to Go Bars.
