Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Usually, food is recommended to consume 2 to 3 hours before a workout. If workout will start in less than two hours, should consume easy to digest carbohydrates and protein such as protein smoothies, whole grains or oatmeal. If it will start in less than an hour, then Greek yogurt, piece of fruit such as banana, apple, orange.
