Flab Fighter--Eating to get the most out of your workout.
Eating a low glycemic-index snack, like an apple or cashews, before your workout can increase fat burn during exercise. Low glycemic-index foods trigger a lower insulin response; having high levels have proven to limit fat burning.
You don't want to pair low glycemic-index foods with sugary foods because they will still spike insulin levels even when pair with a low glycemic index food.
