The Doctors are joined by fitness expert Stephanie Mansour, who says if you are planning a hardcore workout to eat 2 hours before. If you are planning a less intense workout for around 30 minutes, she suggests eating a light healthy snack.
Regardless of the type of workout, the fitness expert says your meals and snacks should be made up of healthy foods like lean proteins, healthy fats, and good carbs.
"I don't want you to exercise and use that as an excuse to eat an extra snack or eat an extra meal," she stresses. "You really want to work your workout into your healthy eating schedule."
Stephanie tells her clients who work out early in the morning -- and will not have time to eat 2 hours before they exercise -- to eat a healthy snack right when they wake up in order to provide energy for their body. And if you are not going to eat before exercise, she says staying hydrated is extra important.
Foods to avoid before working out -- according to the fitness expert -- are high fiber items and raw vegetables. Instead, she suggests eating a food high in protein and something with good carbs. She suggests a banana or hard-boiled egg and also her energy balls or sweet potato toast.
