Here's a really good breakfast that I've been eating prior to going on extended bike rides. It works well for any type of aerobic sport. Eat one hour prior to workout.
It supplies a good deal of carbs, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium (in proper ratio), and the protein and fiber is decent to keep you from getting hungry, while the fat is low enough not to throw off your game.
Compare my breakfast versus a 60 gram sports fuel bar containing magnesium.
I'd be interested in everyone's suggestions as to their breakfasts that work for them! Feel free to list the nutritional values so we can compare.
- (2) 6 ounce "Carbmaster" Yogurts (Kroger brand; similar to "low fat" but better)
- 2 tablespoons of Soy Nuts (mixed in with the yogurt)
- (7.5) pieces of Wheat Thins 'Fiber Selects'
