what and when should i eat before a morning walk

Small Snack
Include any fast digesting foods in your morning snacks. One of the best food to eat before morning walk is fruits. Fruits like pineapple, apricots, banana, mango and watermelon are good options. They have carbohydrates and very little fat. This will provide you enough energy, but will not cause extra weight gain.

Nutritional Balanced Meal
Consume a nutritional balanced meal 1-2 hours before you do start your morning walk. This meal should contain only half the number of calories that you decide to burnout. So if you are planning to burn 600 calories, you will need to eat less than 300 calories. Good options for these kinds of foods to eat before morning walk are fruits, yogurt, oatmeal, cereals, raw veggies, milk or vegetable juice.

Fluids
Fluids are very important energy sources when you are considering morning exercises. Staying hydrated is very important during morning walk. The more hydrated you are, your exercises will be much easier and more effective. An average of 16-20 ounces of water, 1-2 hours before the walk is sure to give you a better outcome.
